@ Austin Dog Park

What do you get when you combine the following organizations: Austin Area Art Center, Solid Rock Photography, the Austin Dog Park, and Oak Park Mall? Saturday, February 11, from 11am-1pm at the Oak Park Mall is the first ever My Furry Valentine Dog Walk along with Smooches for your Pooches Photo Session in Community Room #1 at Oak Park Mall in Austin, Minnesota.

S.P.A.R.K., Start a Dog Park for Austin’s Respectable K-9s, approached the Oak Park Mall Manager, Shan, several months ago about doing a dog walk in the mall where various vendors could also then market to the needs of the dog owners that in turn would be a fundraiser for the Austin dog park. Shan, after considering the options said they should go ahead and plan it. Now, other business have gotten involved to help raise funds for the Austin Dog Park located across from Bandshell Community Park.

This Saturday, February 11, from 11-1 pm will be your chance to bring your dog to Oak Park Mall to go walking as well as get your picture with your pooch or just your pooch. Either way, Solid Rock Photography will be there to capture the images. The sitting fee of $5 for a five minute slot will be donated to the Austin Dog Park. Dog owners must sign up for a time slot and then wait their turn for the slot. At registration, dog owners will then be given information about how they can purchase images from Solid Rock Photography’s Online Personal Archive by Monday night, February 13. The portraits will be available for purchase from there until March 9, in any size wallets and bigger and in specialty products including but not limited to canvas, metal, and Chormalux prints to banners, cards, buttons, dry erase boards, and more!

Being this is an Oak Park Mall event, Dustin DeBoer of Solid Rock Photography is donating 30% of revenue back to the Austin Area Art Center. The Art Center is excited about being a part of a community initiative again as they just participate with the Paint the Town Pink excitement that raised upwards of $31,000 for the Hormel Institute. Way to go, Austin business and non profits for supporting cancer research at a world class facility.
