Burlington Subaru recently aided the HSCC with a pet adoption day, now they are continuing their partnership by providing the HSCC’s calendar to customers. The HSCC created a calendar that features 11 of their female employees and their shelter photographer alongside 12 local men and their pets in an old-fashioned pin-up calendar for 2013. This is created to raise money for the shelter.
“This calendar challenged the staff to leave their comfort zones and comfort clothes and accept being front and center – rather than behind the scenes of animal care – to promote animal welfare… But in the end, I think one and all would say we had a lot of fun,” wrote HSCC Director of Development & Outreach, Megan Stearns on the HSCC website page dedicated to the calendar.
The calendars are available to purchase at $19.95 each or $16 each when you spend a minimum of $25 on their online Holiday Store, which offers free shipping. The calendar is also available for sale at HSCC and can be ordered by phone or email.
Contributors to the production of the calendar include photographer Kelly Schultze of Mountain Dog Photography, hair and makeup stylist Jessica A. Pelkey of Salon Elixer, wardrobe donations from the Clothing Line and Bella Boutique, design by Suzanne Fey of oh!suzannah and printing by Queen City Printers.
“We are also immensely grateful for the outpouring of support we received from the community at large for this project – especially the dozen men and their pets who posed – and hope that this calendar brings joy to many animal lovers,” wrote Stearns.
Steve Kelson, general manager of Burlington Hyundai Subaru participated as one of the 12 men in the calendar shoot alongside his dog Rylee, and is excited to be a part of the program to aid the shelter.
“We’re always eager to help support people in our local community, and with this calendar we can help raise money for animals, which we love. It was definitely an entertaining experience posing for the photos, but we had a lot of fun,” said Kelson, whose picture is featured for February.
If you purchase a new Hyundai or Subaru vehicle from Burlington Hyundai Subaru, request a calendar at the time of purchase to receive the 2013 “Pin-ups, Pups & Pussycats” calendar.
