The Cutest Calendar

Stuff We Love
Feb. 10, 2024

Traverse City photographer Amanda Lewis is embarking on an important quest: Finding the area’s most adorable pets. She’s sponsoring the 2025 Calendar Contest to raise funds for the Cherryland Humane Society. Here’s how it works: Local pet owners can enter their pets by submitting a photo along with a $5 entry fee, and then folks can vote for the cutest pets for $1 per vote. You can also celebrate a pet’s gotcha-day or birthday by reserving an empty grid space ($10) on the calendar for their photo. The contest closes March 17, 2024, and the top 13 winners (12 months plus the cover) will be professionally photographed by Lewis. The fundraising goal is $5,000, and copies of the calendar will be available for purchase in late 2024. Learn more and submit your furry friend at gogophotocontest.com/cherryland2025.
