McALESTER — Studio 23 Photography and Relay for Life team Kidden’ Around Academy are hosting a second annual McAlester’s Cutest Pet Calendar contest April 17 to 19.

The calendar will feature the top six fund raising pets as well as the top six pets receiving Facebook votes. The top fundraising pet will win the cover of the calendar, a choice of a calendar month, a picture published in the McAlester News-Capital, a trophy and a $100 Pet Sense gift card.

“Last year we raised over $4,000 on the pet contest,” said event organizer Valerie Lalli. “We hope to do just as well or better this year.”

The photo session fee is $10 and the contest entry fee is $5. Photo packages will be available for purchase from $20 to $50. To schedule an appointment, call 918-426-3776.
