Painting with a Twist of Trinity to Host Breast Cancer Fundraiser to Benefit Vera Bradley Foundation
Trinity, FL — Painting with a Twist, an art and social studio in Trinity, FL will host a special Painting with a Purpose event February 19 to benefit the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer.
The studio will offer refreshments and giveaways for the party, in addition to donating 50 percent of the proceeds to the non-profit organization. To sign up, go to http://www.paintingwithatwist.com/
The fundraiser will take place locally, as well as at 30 other studios across the country in honor of the Vera Bradley Foundation. Each month, franchisees from across the nation hold monthly painting fundraisers through the Painting with a Purpose program to benefit local charities. In 2011, Painting with a Twist locations donated more than $80,000 to local groups through the program.
“We’re delighted to partner with Painting with a Twist to raise funds for breast cancer research,” says Catherine Hill, executive director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. “Our family of committed partners is growing and we love their help in spreading the word about the important work of the Vera Bradley Foundation.”
The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer was founded by Vera Bradley owners Barbara Baekgaard and Patricia Miller in 1998. To date, it has contributed $15 million to the world renowned research team in the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis. The team of researchers at the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories is making significant progress and gaining national recognition for their work in several areas of breast cancer research and awareness.
Impressive sales of the Vera Bradley breast cancer awareness colors generate part of this revenue, but another significant portion is the donors like Painting with a Twist and those that support their events.
