Employee United Way committee sponsors family portrait opportunity

November 02, 2015

Baystate Franklin Medical Center’s Employee United Way Campaign Committee is sponsoring a family portrait opportunity at Hallmark Institute of Photography, to raise money for the United Way of Franklin County. The portrait date is Saturday, November 14, from 10 am - 3 pm, at Hallmark Institute of Photography, 27 Industrial Blvd, off Millers Falls Road in Turners Falls.

Sittings will be scheduled in 15-minute intervals, with students from Hallmark Institute taking the portraits. There is a $20 sitting fee which must be paid before the sitting reservation can be confirmed. An additional $10 will be charged for each additional 15-minute block of time. Various photo packages will be available at very reasonable prices. Order your enlargements at your sitting and they will be ready for pick-up at Baystate Franklin Medical Center within two weeks. Or go online and have a calendar, holiday greeting cards, or much more designed with your print. All sitting fees and proceeds from photo enlargement sales will be donated to the United Way of Franklin County.

“We are very excited that Hallmark Institute and its student photographers agreed to collaborate with us on this special fund-raiser again this year,” said Lynda Zukowski, Director, Clinical Services. Zukowski is co-chairing this year’s BFMC campaign with Kerry Damon, Director of Human Resources.

Coordinating the event from the Hallmark side is Lisa Robinson, Director of Education. “We love teaming up with Baystate Franklin,” said Robinson. “This event does so much good. In addition to raising money to support a local, community-based charity, it provides neighbors and friends with cherished photographic memories. A lot of families come back year after year, and we love to see them!”

Families can include their well-behaved pets in their portraits if they choose. When you book your appointment, please state that you will be bringing your pet.
