A fundraising calendar for the SPCA of East Texas is raising some eyebrows for its photos of regional officials and business owners posing in the buff.
KLTV reports that a board member of Tyler's Meals on Wheels resigned after the group's president posed in the calendar. The board member explained in a letter to the MOW board "for the record, my resignation was prompted by the decision of our board president to pose in the nude for the fundraising calendar that was recently published."
MOW President Aubrey Sharpe clarified for KLTV, saying "Well, I didn't pose nude. I was wearing short britches!"
The SPCA of East Texas "said they have sold more than a thousand copies of that calendar, raising nearly [$20,000]," according to KLTV.
