RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Dancers are teaming up with shelter dogs to raise money in a fun way.
Members of Magnify Dance Ensemble have put together a 2021 calendar featuring dancers with animals at Watermelon Ranch.
Organizer Heidi Anderson says they’re trying to get creative with fundraising for both nonprofits during the pandemic. The dance group picks a different benefactor each year.
“It was fun, we all got to stay there with the dogs and all sit there and pose and I loved that all the photoshoots and the unique costumes; my mom picked them out,” said dancer Charlotte Anderson.
The money raised pays for dance training and venues; and the dance group will be donating 15 percent of the proceeds to Watermelon Mountain Ranch for pet food and other needs.
