Paint a Masterpiece for Warrior Research
By: Warrior Research Foundation
If you have ever wondered if you have a talent for art, this is the fundraiser for you. Cheers Art Studio provides a fun, social group setting. Its instructor will guide us step by step through a specified painting. It’s a great way to explore your creative side. And, at the end of the session you may have a newfound interest — while also supporting our veterans!
The session is geared toward novices and those with no painting ability, but even experienced painters have been known to enjoy it. You will be encouraged to take your painting to wherever your creativity and talent allow. Cheers Art Studio will provide everything you’ll need: a 16-foot x 20-foot pre-stretched canvas, paint, brushes, easels and apron, and all of the instructions to create your own art work.
To make it even more fun, Warrior Research Foundation will provide tasty treats, wine, a silent auction (https://www.facebook.com/
Funds from the event will benefit the WRF’s many programs in support of our veterans. One of those is a documentary on former Marine machine-gunner Hank Goff, who served nine months in the deadliest part of Afghanistan. A 2015 Disney Spirit Award recipient, Goff and his Marine buddies check on each other regularly to try to ensure yet another one does not succumb to suicide. A trailer to the documentary, Echoes From Afghanistan, can be found at https://youtu.be/

You also can support our veterans by mentioning the Warrior Research Foundation any Wednesday in March when you eat at Not Your Average Joe’s in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Warrior Research Foundation, founded in 2013, mentors, empowers and supports veteran families through research, direct service support and advocacy. WRF conducts and reviews comprehensive quantitative and qualitative research with the goal of improving overall health and the quality of life of military service members, retirees and their families. Based on conducting current research, WRF can more accurately identify the specific needs of veterans and their families. WRF is an organization comprised of military family members, spouses, veterans and people who are committed to supporting our veterans and their families by maintaining tradition, embracing progress and cultivating change.
WRF currently is running a survey for active, retired or separated U.S. military members who were in a military combat zone. If you served in a military combat zone, or know someone who did, the survey can be accessed at http://tinyurl.com/
