August 21, 2008 // Franchising.com // Murrieta, CA—Grins 2 Go® and Murrieta Chamber of Commerce join hands to host an executive portrait fundraising event to benefit the Community Food Pantry of Murrieta. The executive portraits will be taken on August 23 from 3p-6p by the professional photographers of Grins 2 Go®. The event will be held at the Murrieta Chamber of Commerce in the Conference Room.
Mark Hays, owner of the Grins 2 Go® in the Temecula Valley pitched the idea of an Executive Portrait fundraiser to the Murrieta Chamber. The innovative idea was embraced by Rhonda Warner of the Chamber who wholeheartedly supports the Community Food Pantry.
"Business people need to update their portraits on a regular basis," says Hays. "With this event, chamber members and others in the community will be able to get professional portraits for a small fee and provide help to the Community Food Pantry of Murrieta."
All are welcome to get their portraits taken. Participants can make an appointment to get their executive portraits taken on Aug. 23 by calling 951-674-7312. Executive portrait sessions will cost $79 for 4 stylish portrait poses on a CD. The images are royalty free and can be used for print, web and other advertising materials. $10 from each session will be donated to the Community Food Pantry of Murrieta.
