ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Dog lovers, Alert!
 
The Hotel Monaco Alexandria will host its annual Santa Paws Pet Photo Event this weekend December 8 and 9, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
 
Alexandria pet lovers are invited to swing by the hotel living room-style lobbies for a festive afternoon of snapping pictures of their pet with Santa while nibbling on holiday treats and light refreshments.
 
This year, Santa Paws will take place at two Kimpton Hotels in the DC metropolitan region. Both events are open to the public and donations to partner charities are welcomed.
 
This Santa Paws event will benefit Veterans Moving Forward, a non-profit that provides service dogs to veterans with physical and mental health challenges.
 
As the event is free to the public, locals are invited to enjoy complimentary holiday refreshments and treats in the hotel’s festively decorated lobby, while snapping their own photos of their pet with Santa. Monaco Alexandria and its sister Kimpton hotels - Morrison House and Lorien Hotel & Spa - will raffle off prizes with 100% of proceeds benefiting Veterans Moving Forward, www.vetsfwd.org.
 
The Monaco Alexandria is located at 480 King Street, Old Town.
