Hallmark Institute of Photography & Baystate Franklin Hospital Host Fundraiser

10/30/2014 (press release: ascutta) // Turners Falls, Massachusetts, USA // Ed Martin, info@hallmark.edu

The Hallmark Institute of Photography (http://hallmark.edu/) announced today that it will team up with Baystate Franklin Medical Center’s Employee United Way Campaign Committee to host a family portrait event to raise money for United Way of Franklin County. On Nov. 15, Hallmark Institute of Photography students and faculty will take family portraits from 10am-2pm at Hallmark’s campus on Industrial Blvd off Millers Falls Road in Turners Falls, Mass.

Hallmark invites the public to bring their families to the school, where students will be taking family portraits in 15-minute intervals. Families must pay a $25 “sitting fee” for the photograph and choose from a variety of well-priced photo packages. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be donated to United Way of Franklin County. “People come in with their families, their kids, their pets,” says Lisa Robinson, Director of Education at Hallmark. “We’ve had people come in year after year. It’s a great event for a great cause.” For over 75 years, United Way of Franklin County has funded initiatives to improve the education, income, and health of Franklin County residents.

To schedule a sitting, please contact Sarah Gagaris, Baystate Franklin Medical Center, 413-773-2441. When scheduling a sitting, please indicate if you plan to bring a pet.
