Paint Nite

Inviting all creative spirits! Explore your inner artist while raising money for TVDSA!

We’re hosting a Paint Nite, where a local artist will assist and inspire us while we mix and mingle.

Paint Nite will donate a portion of ticket sales to TVDSA to increase the awareness around Down syndrome so that the whole community will accept and recognize the greatness we see in our loved ones, not just the differences.

So let’s get together for a night of creativity and cocktails for a great cause – please RSVP and register now by clicking the image below:
