Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many local businesses are altering how they provide customer service.
We are sharing a constantly updated list of ways Daytonians can continue to support local businesses and nonprofits during this crisis.

We are also offering free gift wrapping as an option on all orders.
Please allow approximately one week to process your order. Thank you for your continued support and remember that all purchases directly benefit the Dayton Art Institute!

We are a small, scrappy team, owners Max & Briana and three ladies have been right along side Max and I, flexible through tremendous growth and change. With almost no new projects coming in currently and dozens of scheduled events canceled, there are just very few options that we have.
But! I came up with an idea: I’m offering gift cards for portrait sessions, to be used any time through the end of 2020. (When this is all over, you’re still going to need family pictures in the fall for your holiday cards, no?) They are at my regular portrait session rate of $375 and, of each sold, we’ll give $50 directly to each of our three gals.
I’ll be shooting these which, with our focus on corporate and commercial work, I rarely do these days–and they can be used for any kind of session, including engagement/couples, family portraits, pets, headshots or whatever you might need.

Middletown Businesses are hosting a VIRTUAL Bingo Game Over $1000 in prizes and gift cards!
The Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus annual fundraiser was supposed to be today, and as with so many events, it had to be cancelled. Thanks to many businesses in the area we have donations that were to be auctioned in the silent auction. We didn’t want that generosity to go unnoticed. We’ve put the auction up online and it will be live for 1 week. Please consider bidding online and supporting the Chorus!

If you had told Red Star that two and a half weeks after opening, they’d be forced to shut down due to a global pandemic, they would have thought you were nuts. But here we are. And like so many, we’re scrambling to find ways to ensure our fledgling business weathers this storm. What was supposed to be their initial run of staff T-shirts are now for sale to the general public, with all proceeds going to our employees to help mitigate their financial struggles in this difficult time. Head over to http://redstardayton.square.site to purchase yours. As is the case with the times we currently live in, they will ship these shirts as soon as they are able. If you select pickup, you can do so once the state allows them to reopen.
