Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will always hold a special place in my heart. I adopted my beloved Basil, who inspired me to start doing pet photography, from them in 2012. That's why I'm happy to give a little back to them, by donating a raffle basket for the Chinese auction they're doing at their 7th Annual Benefit at the Boardy Barn. The event is being held at Boardy Barn in Hampton Bays on September 10th, 2016 from 6pm-10pm. Besides the Chinese auction, there will also be a 50-50 raffle, silent auction, door prizes and a buffet dinner. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. There will be live music by Long Island classic rock band Second Shift, and the organizers request attendees bring a donation of dog or cat food to supply their food pantry.
My raffle basket will include a free newborn, pet or family photo session and a $100 print credit toward product purchases from that session, along with a few fun extras for the basket winner and their pet.
