We raised $54,200 for the PAWS calendar!!

Last Saturday night was the big PAWS Wild Night event, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that we raised a whopping $54,200 for the PAWS calendar! Most months were above $4,000, and one month auctioned off for $7,000 alone! My friend Katie and I kept track of each month during the auction, as you can see in the image below, with the exception of August because we were too busy freaking out and chatting. (August ended up going for $4,000).

To explain how the calendar works: each calendar page and cover were auctioned off individually, and each auction winner won a photo shoot with me, and the best photos from each shoot will be featured as the page months and cover in a tangible printed calendar that will be for sale starting in September. I will be sure to let everyone know when the calendar is available for sale, and where you can pick up a copy.

I will be very busy during the last half of April and May doing these 13 shoots on top of my regular client work, but I’ll try to keep the blog up to date, and if you’d like a behind-the-scenes look at my PAWS shoots, follow me on Instagram at @cowbelly, or on Facebook, where I will be posting photos from the shoots. Looking forward to meeting all of these lucky pups and kitties (and Casey the 26 year old horse!). 🙂
