Spirit of Hope 2022 with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Indigo Events, a Toronto-based corporate photography company, recently had the pleasure of photographing the Spirit of Hope 2022 event by Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center’s (FSWC). The event was held at the Enercare Centre in Toronto and was attended by over 1,200 members of the Jewish community and allies.

The Spirit of Hope event is an annual gala that raises funds for the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center’s initiatives, including educational programs and resources to combat antisemitism, racism, and hate in all its forms. This year’s event was particularly special as it honored NBA legend and social activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with the first annual Ally Against Antisemitism Award. The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the fight against antisemitism and other forms of hate.

Indigo Events was honored to be selected as the official photographer for the Spirit of Hope 2022 event. The team was tasked with capturing every moment of the evening, from the speeches to the award presentation to the lively performances that entertained the attendees.
