William Morton announced a new fundraising drive today to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. For every holiday event photographed between Thanksgiving and Christmas, 10% of all sales will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The national philanthropy of Morton’s Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraternity, St. Jude’s mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Founded by noted entertainer and TKE frater Danny Thomas in 1962, St. Jude’s mission is one where no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
Based in Memphis Tennessee (near where Morton trained during his service in the US Navy), St. Jude treats nearly 6,000 children per year. St. Jude is aligned with two local San Diego institutions: Rady Children’s Hospital and the University of California, San Diego (where Morton teaches photography workshops).
Morton’s personal philosophy of “it’s not what you get in life, it’s what you give that’s important” encourages him to look for opportunities to better the lives of those in need. St. Jude’s exemplifies this vision, dedicated to giving children a chance for a better tomorrow.

William Morton Visuals event photography participated in the All You Need Is Love fundraiser at the Stoneridge Country Club on February 13, 2010, to benefit the National Brain Cancer Association.
William Morton helped celebrate the Valentines Day holiday by participating in a dinner/dance fundraiser at the Stoneridge Country Club in Poway on February 13, 2010. Yvonne Szikla of Affairs with Flair organized the All You Need Is Love event in honor of a former Stoneridge member who passed away from brain cancer. Morton Visuals provided portraits printed on-site, handing each guest a 5×7 print in a folder a minute after they chose their favorite. The guests raved about the excitement of seeing their images instantly, and being able to retake them if they weren’t 100% satisfied – not to mention being able to take them home with them immediately. A motivated group of gentlemen even dragged in the Kissing Booth to capture images of themselves offering up $100 bills and credit cards to generous ladies working the booth. All in all it was a very fun evenings, and we were very glad to be a part of it. Kudos to Yvonne and all the vendors who participated in this event for the National Brain Cancer Association!
William Morton Visuals supports The Pink Party fundraiser for breast cancer awareness at the House of Blues in San Diego.
On December 3rd William Morton of Morton Visuals went on location in support of a great cause, the 2009 Pink Party at the House of Blues. This marks the second year that William has worked with the Pink Party, and this year he stepped up to serve as Photo Coordinator for the event. Setting up in the Pink Lounge, William photographed posed portraits with 5x7s being printed on-site, presented to the subjects in under a minute. The crowd was delighted with the instant gratification, taking their memories of the celebration home with them in a nice folder. Half of all sales were donated back to the Pink Party charities, and the images created at this year’s event have been posted online so that supporters can order additional prints. A special thanks to Michael Walborn and Tom Yip for the behind-the-scenes shots of William.
