Hey, mamas, we’d love for some of our readers’ kiddos to be featured in the July issue of Northwest Arkansas’ Peekaboo Magazine! One local cutie pie will even make it on the cover.
Here’s the scoop: the American Cancer Society is hosting a child’s photo contest fundraiser to support Relay For Life. The contest is open to Northwest Arkansas children 12 and under. Alert: Entries will only be accepted through Tuesday, April 7! Entry forms can be found at http://main.acsevents.org/arcoverkid or at www.peekaboonwa.com. There is a $10 entry fee per child.
Friends, family and community members are encouraged to “vote” for their favorite photos online starting on April 15 and ending on May 15. Each dollar donation logged on the site for the voter’s favorite photograph will be counted as one vote. All donations will benefit the Relay For Life of the entrant’s choice.
The nine photos with the highest number of “votes” after the winner will also be featured inside the publication, and the top vote recipient will receive the cover shot.
Relay For Life is an overnight fundraising event filled with activities, food and community spirit.
“Every penny, dime and dollar raised at Relay For Life offers hope to everyone who has been or will be touched by this disease, and brings us one step closer to a cancer-free tomorrow,” said Lindsey Bowers, development representative for the American Cancer Society.
