Pet Photo Calendar

The subcommittee for this fundraiser met last week and brought forth the following to the committee:

  • We are removing the “contest” aspect of the pet photo portion and allowing 96 entries (8 pics per page). Entry fee is $5/photo, orders will be completed on the LAUW sites webpage.
  • Timeline for photo entry is March 15-April 1.
  • We are looking into printing options to see who can provide us with the most competitive rate. Options include: M&M printing, King’s Printing, or Printing Center USA.
  • We will order a mock up to use for advertising and sell calendars from mid-April until May. That will give us time to get our orders and deliver before July 1.
