Giving Back to MACC with photography.
At Mortensen Photography, we continue to help others in our community by donating photography sessions and portraits to events around the major Milwaukee area. If you are involved in a school or charity that you feel strongly about, please contact us to see if our portrait photographers can help.
The MACC Fund
Giving Back with Cute Kids
& The MACC Fund with photography
For over 20 years Mortensen Portrait Design have held our Annual Cute Kids Portrait Contest to benefit the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund with discounted photography sessions.
This fundraising event has grown from a small portrait contest to over 150 cute kids per year, a portrait display at Tadpoles where the general public can place their $1 votes (all monies donated to MACC Fund) and culminates with our Cute Kids Calendar. Ten dollars of the reduced session fee is donated to the MACC Fund, as well as 10% of everything purchased.
In a joint effort with The Marek Group of Waukesha and Bradner Smith & Company, an amazing portrait calendar is produced every year with our cute kids portraits and stories of children currently waging war against cancer. For only $10 you can own one of these beautiful calendars and again 100% of the proceeds are donated to the MACC Fund.
Mortensen Photography sends our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to this effort which each year raises over $6,000 from the sessions and orders and over $4,000 from voting. If you would like to learn more about the MACC Fund, please click on the link below.
Cute Kids Calendars are available at our studio (usually starting in November), at Tadpoles and at local businesses such as Spargo Spa, Laacke & Joys and The Art of Hair.Find out more about the Cute Kids Calendar Contest by clicking on this link.
A special thanks to The Marek Group for a fantastic job of printing the calendars and contributing the calendars to the MACC Fund. Without great support from local businesses such as this we could make this fundraising event happen.
Thank you to the above supporters of the Cute Kids Calendar. Please visit them on the web.
