Sunday, May 1, 2011, Painting with a Twist hosts their monthly fundraiser, Painting with a Purpose, a fun, creative event in which attendees can flaunt their artistic talents and create a keepsake painting to take home, all while sipping a little wine and raising money for a local charity. This month's event will benefit Hand to Hold, a local non profit that provides resources and support for parents of preemies, babies born with special health care needs, and those who have experienced a loss due to these or other complications.
Painting with a Twist is a local franchise of Corks N Canvas, which was started in 2007 in Mandeville, Louisiana. With its founders formerly working in fundraising, the company and its franchises strive to be an active member of the community and focus on giving back. Once a month, all Corks N Canvas and Painting With a Twist locations host a fundraising event, Painting with a Purpose, in effort to raise money that will stay local in each market.
Registration for the event is $45, with a whopping half of that amount directly benefiting families affected by premature birth, special needs, and loss through Hand to Hold. The fee includes everything needed to paint your own version of the trendy Austin Motel on Congress Avenue. The studio will provide wine openers and cups, but attendees must bring their own wine if they wish to have a drink while painting.
Everyone is welcome, so invite friends and family to join you in an event that's sure to provide a change of pace and benefits a wonderful cause. No painting experience is necessary! For further questions, contact Babs Haller at firstname.lastname@example.org
