Get shot for charity

Cultivate Garden & Gift teams with Julien Photography on charity photo booth Saturday

Cultivate Garden & Gift of Parksville and Julien Photography will team up to host their first Photo Booth for Charity Saturday, Dec. 5, in what they hope will become an annual mid-Island holiday event.

From 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Julien Photography will shoot portraits of individuals, couples, families or friends, for $10 per photo. Proceeds from the event will be given to charity, with the subject’s choice of Nanoose Community Services or Parksville SPCA.

Each photo purchased earns an entry into a draw for a gift basket and Scratch ’n Save coupons for purchases at the shop that day. Donations of non-perishable food for Nanoose Community Services or cat/dog food for the SPCA will earn an extra entry into the draw.

Complimentary coffee and hot chocolate will be provided by Starbucks, and children are invited to hang their wish to Santa on the wishing tree.

No appointment is necessary for a portrait shoot; first-come, first-served.

Cultivate Garden & Gift is located at 609 East Island Hwy. in Parksville. For more info, call 250-248-0093.
