KALB Kicks Off Paws for the Environment Photo Contest and Fundraiser

3-5-2016 10-12-40 AM

Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful is excited to announce its inaugural Paws for the Environment Photo Contest. The contest kicks off on March 1, 2016 and will continue through April 30, 2016.

Elkmont’s superstar 1/2 marathon-running bloodhound, Ludivine, has endorsed this contest. KALB is working with Ludivine’s human and we are very proud of her support.

To enter, simply submit a photo of your dog along with an entry form and a $5.00 donation to KALB. If the photo is submitted with a $10 donation (instead of $5), it will include entry into the contest plus 10 votes for the entered pooch. Entries will be accepted now through April 22nd; however, the sooner an entry is received, the sooner it will be eligible for votes.

This contest is open to everyone and is a fundraiser for KALB, which is a non-profit affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. All donations are tax deductible.

On March 15th, the public will be invited to vote for their favorite entries. A $1 to KALB will equal one vote. Online voting and donation will be available; however, voting may be done by mail or at the KALB office located at 125 East Street in Athens.

Winning entries will be those with the votes at the close of voting. Final voting will take place at KALB’s Earth Day & Outdoor EXPO on April 30, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Friendship Church on Lucas Ferry Rd. in Athens.

Winning dogs will be featured in the 2017 Paws for the Environment Calendar, a copy of which will be given to each winning owner. Some winners will be offered a photo shoot in preparation for the calendar.
