We could not be more pleased with how our first event, our Pup-a-Razzi Fundraiser, turned out. From the weather cooperating (mostly) to seeing both familiar and new faces (canine and human), the dailydogblog.org and Iris Images Photography had a pretty great weekend.
We were successful in booking every single photo reservation for both Saturday and Sunday, and actually had a good number of walk-up appointments as well. In total, we put smiles on the faces of 43 dog owners during Pup-a-Razzi!
Participants were very generous as well -- often donating more than the $10 fee to our cause and helping us fill a tub with cleaning supplies and dog food which will also be presented to Forever Paws Animal Shelter this weekend.
Our total monetary donation amount is currently at $400, with several kind folks also offering to mail additional donation checks to us this week.
We’ll follow up after we make the donation delivery to Forever Paws this weekend and let you know the end result of our Pup-a-Razzi Fundraiser.
A BIG thank you to all those who participated/donated, and to Vanessa Machado from Iris Images Photography. Without you, this event would not have been possible.
Here are a few photos that we snapped during the event. To see more photos and some teasers of the professional photos Vanessa took, head over to our Facebook page!
