The Covington Children's Classic

As you can see Covington's Children's Classic is well under way. Its day 3 in the 7+ day event. Every year there is a HUGE publication in the town paper, The Leader (The Covington Leader); it's a brag book of sorts for the parents. In this event Richard and his son Phil photograph the children of Tipton County ages 0-6yrs. A new child every 8 mins for 8 hours a day. Needless to say, they are exhausted when they go home at night, but they both love it, and wouldn't have it any other way!!
By donating their session fee(s), the parents of each child partner with us to make a monetary donation to The Carl Perkins Center. In addition, each parent receives a complimentary 5x7 as a "thank you" from Richard and Phil for helping support this great cause. We all play a part in making our community a great place to live; and the Children's Classic allows Richard and Phil a way of being active in that endeavor. In this together, using the Children's Classic as a medium, over the years, we have raised over $100,000 for The Carl Perkins Center!!! But the most rewarding part of the week is the knowledge of knowing EVERYONE involved did something to help a child in need.
