Fall Photo Fundraiser

Our 5th Annual Fall Photo Fundraiser on October 10th was a great success!

The weather cooperated with us, the photographers were so generous and families who joined us looked great! 

The event raised $5,900 for Adoption Support Alliance. 

Considering COVID (which we did not predict when setting on fundraising goals),

59% of our event goal is a definite cause for celebration! 

If you would like to contribute to making up the difference in our fundraiser's earnings, join us in our 2020 COVID Catch-up Campaign.  Help us start 2021 off right! 

Thank you so much to the staff and owners of Alexander Homestead.  We look forward to being with you again on

Sunday, October 17, 2021 from 10 am to 2 pm.  

Check out these amazing images below captured from this year's event and mark your calendars to join us in 2021 :)

Our Event Location 

We cannot wait to introduce you to the beautiful grounds of the Alexander Homestead. This popular wedding venue is a hidden gem in Charlotte!  Haven't planned a wedding recently?  We haven't either! What a fun opportunity to gain exclusive access to this beautiful historic property.  We are confident this space will be inspiring to our photographers. Plus, there is plenty of room for social distancing, a great location to gather (if it's safe to do so) and easy parking. We have high confidence in their knowledgeable and friendly staff to help us put on a safe, fun and relaxed event for our participants.

Check out their website and this awesome virtual tour below and add something to look forward to on your 2020 calendar.

Our Safety Plan 

Ugh!  We know that COVID-19 has thrown a wrench into everyone's plans this year.  It comes to no surprise to you, I'm sure, that it has affected our planning for this event too!

We are making accommodations to the event structure to ensure the safety
of event attendees and volunteers to the best of our ability.  Plans for the event will be based on the current recommendations by the CDC as well as state mandates and final determinations will be made closer to the event. We will work closely with the event staff at Alexander Homestead as they are extremely well-versed in how to do large events safely.  For example, we are considering a requirement for 
masks (except for in pictures, unless that's the look you are going for), not serving food or drink and/or escorting families directly to their scheduled photo shoot for pictures and then back to the car to limit interactions.  If we cannot feel comfortable holding an event safely (or, of course, if the event is not allowed), we will reschedule the event for a later date when it is safe to do so. Trust that throughout the process your safety is of our utmost concern!


We will communicate all our final planning in advance of the event and will be issuing full refunds if anyone gets sick or no longer feels safe attending based on our changes.  

All photographers and event participants will be encouraged not to attend the event if they

are symptomatic or have been exposed to anyone within two weeks of the event who is positive
for Covid-19.  As such, we will ask that all participants be prepared to be flexible in terms of the schedule and photographer preferences.  Again, if changes occur due to coronavirus that are outside of our control and you no longer want to participate in the event, we will refund your payment in full.
