The Aperture Foundation (a nonprofit foundation dedicated to promoting photography – Ansel Adams was one of the founders) is having its first annual Some LIke It Hot Summer Party on June 18.  The great news for collectors is that with a $150 ticket to the event, you will receive a Thomas Allen digital C-print (pictured above) created exclusively for the event.  The print is in an 8×10″ edition of 250 presented in an archival paper folder.

Even if you can not make the party (you do not have to attend in order to receive the print), the print is worth the cost of the ticket and you get to contribute to a wonderful foundation.  The event features cocktails, fine wines courtesy of Robert Mondavi Private Selectin, a raffle, and live music by The Willowz.

Additional Information after the jump.
