|Description of project
|We hired a local artist to do a paint night. We sold tickets in advance so she knew how many people were coming, with a maximum of 50. She had all of the supplies and was great to teach everyone there. We had a 50/50 draw and break with light refreshments. The funds we raised we donated to Cystic Fibrosis.
