Sausalito Books by the Bay Fundraiser for Pen Pals of San Quentin @ Sausalito Books by the Bay
Mar 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Meet photographer Elizabeth Needham, the new “artist in residence” at Sausalito Books by the Bay, and support Marin Humane!

Elizabeth’s evocative portraits of San Quentin inmates with dogs from Marin Humane’s Pen Pal program will melt your heart. The Pen Pal program started in 2005 pairing dogs with select good behavior inmates. The dogs and inmates are allowed to live together, while working on rehabilitating the dogs for adoption. The connection between the inmates and the dogs is quite simply the definition of a win-win scenario.

All proceeds from the sale of photographs at this special event will go to Marin Humane. Anyone who donates $500 or more will receive a signed print. Elizabeth’s photography will be on display through March.

The event is free to attend, but please RSVP by registering on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sausalito-books-by-the-bay-marin-humane-fundraiser-for-pen-pal-program-tickets-277187173297
