BUFFALO, NY – HUNT Real Estate (http://www.huntrealestate.com) held their first annual HUNT Pet-a-Palooza Photo Contest from April 4-22, 2016, raising $1,010 for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The contest entailed HUNT agents and employees taking photos of their pets dressed in HUNT paraphernalia and submitting them to the company’s Facebook page for public voting.
“This contest was our most popular one to date by far. We collected nearly 50 pet photos including dogs, cats, horses and even fish,” said Dan Mirsky, Marketing Director for HUNT Real Estate Corporation. “It was amazing to see the positive response from the public by way of all the voting they did. Our winning dog, Sadie, received over 240 votes on Facebook.”
Each photo submission for the contest cost $5, but the majority of those that participated donated significantly more.
“The generosity of our agents and staff was remarkable. We're looking forward to doing this contest again next year and donating even more to the ASPCA,” Mirsky commented.
