Studio Party Recap and Small Miracles Donation

I need a real sign but this will do for now.

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago I made the decision that I needed a party. The reasons were numerous; winter needs to end, Cunningham Studios is officially up and running, and my Mom’s birthday was on the 27th. In her honor I decided to donate 5% of any job or sale made during the month of March to her favorite charity, Small Miracles Cat and Dog Rescue in Ellicott City MD. Mom loved to volunteer at the shelter and often would foster kittens that needed extra care before being adopted. Two of those kittens became ours.

Despite the frigid temperatures, several friends, clients, colleagues, and family came out to party with me and I couldn’t have been happier. I announced that as of the 28th I would be able to donate $1200 to Small Miracles. That may go up as there are a few more contributions in the mail. I’m sure mom would be thrilled.  A huge Thank You to everyone who came out to celebrate with me this past Saturday!
