McKinney’s Painting with a Twist to host 30WALK Benefit for Breast Cancer Research
McKinney’s Painting with a Twist, which will be celebrating its first anniversary on February 4, is proud to host Painting with a Purpose, a fundraiser for 30WALK© on Friday, February 11th, 2011 at 7 PM.
By: Kimberly Cotton
A core mission of each Painting with a Twist franchise is to be an active member of the community and to focus on giving back – in that spirit the Painting with a Purpose program was created. Karlie Saumier of 30WALK says “Our goal is to raise $3000 in 2011 through our Painting with a Twist fundraiser event, 30WALK fundraising page on our BCRF website, and during both 30 mile events. We chose Painting with a Twist for our fundraiser because Kim and her team nurture creativity in a great environment. This painting also represents new life, which resonates with our mission to lower our risk of breast cancer and help fund breast cancer research. The added benefit is that you will have a great time with your friends and a beautiful masterpiece to take home with you! Participants in our fundraising event are automatically registered for the April event, if they would like to participate on any or all 3 days". For more information regarding 30WALK© information and events, please email Karlie Saumier at Karlie@30walk.org.
This is the 38th corporate franchise to open in two years, and its tried and true system is a winner! Over 100 artists work for Painting with a Twist studios, and they have created over 1,000 copyrighted paintings. These are included in the portfolio that is available to all studios and is reflected in the dazzling variety of selections offered to you on the studio calendars. All franchises hold both two and three hour daily and evening classes and they encourage you to check the calendar, choose a painting, reserve your spot online or by phone, come in for a great evening, and leave with a masterpiece!
At Painting with a Twist, a good time is had by one and all, wonderful memories are created, AND the customer leaves with a painting which he or she will proudly hang at home or give as a gift.
