The holidays will be here before you know it and it's not too early to start planning for gifts and cards. The Fredonia Opera House has partnered with STPhotography of Forestville on a special fundraiser for the Opera House. On Saturday, the two organizations will offer holiday portrait sessions onstage at the Opera House.
"There are several beautiful settings available," says Opera House Executive Director Rick Davis, "so you can have your child's or pet's or family's photo or your own photo taken with Santa or simply in a holiday setting. STPhotography's work is stunning, so regardless of the setting you choose, you'll be thrilled with the result. "
Davis notes that this is the fourth year for the fundraiser and that a special offer is being extended to supporters who participated last year. "For those returning participants from last year, if you bring a new participant who signs up for a portrait sitting this year, your own order will be doubled free of charge."

Four special portrait packages will be offered with a portion of the fee for each package to benefit the Opera House:
Basic Package includes photo session and two 5x7 portraits $40 (entire fee donated to Opera House)
Upgraded Package includes photo session, two 5x7 portraits and one 8x10 portrait $75 ($40 donated to Opera House)
