On Saturday, Feb. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the second floor of the MoonDog Cafe on the Green in Chester, Pam Nelligan, owner of P. J. Nelligan Photography, will be photographing families to raise money for Haiti Relief.
"I am using what I know - photography - to raise money for the relief efforts in Haiti," Nelligan stated in a recent interview.
"Feeling powerless in the face of such tragedy is probably something we all experience. I knew that if I could offer the folks of Chester a way to contribute, we could all join together and reach out to help families and children who are in desperate need."
The cost of the fundraiser is $25, in which you receive an 8x10 portrait.
Domenica and Gary Coger are the owners of the building and have generously donated the space, while the Chester Rotary Club has offered their services to handle the funds for this effort.
All the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to "Doctors Without Borders" and "Pure Water Of The World," a non-profit agency started years ago by a Brattleboro Rotary Club member.
"We are not going to set up appointments," Pam added. "Rather, folks will sign in upon arrival and the portraits will be taken in that order. It might be organized chaos, but most events that include children are anyway. Children are always my favorite subjects!"
The portraits will be available approximately two weeks after the fundraiser.
