Painting with a Twist Studios Nationwide to Host Charitable Events for Veteran’s Day

MANDEVILLE, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Painting

with a Twist®, the nation's largest paint-and-sip franchise, will

host system-wide fundraising events on Veteran's Day, Nov. 11, to

benefit the Special

Operations Warrior Foundation through the company's charitable arm, Painting

with a Purpose.



There are 100 studios participating in this fundraiser with at least 50

percent of each event's proceeds being donated to the Special Operations

Warrior Foundation. Some studios are donating 100 percent.

Guests can visit the Painting

with a Twist locations page to find their nearest participating

studio. Each studio's calendar will have a class scheduled on Nov. 11

where customers can sign up to attend for $35. A patriotic scene titled

"Amber Waves of Grain" will be painted during this Painting with a

Purpose event.



This Veteran's Day Painting with a Purpose event signifies the first

time the company is banding together on the same day in support of a

national cause. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides

children of special operations personnel who lost their lives in the

line of duty with full financial assistance for a post-secondary

education, as well as educational and family counseling. The foundation

also makes immediate financial assistance available to special

operations members severely wounded and hospitalized. Nearly 70,000

Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force personnel, active and reserve,

make up units assigned to U.S. Special Operations.



"We are proud to host this national Painting with a Purpose event to

give back to those who have given their lives in service to our

country," said Cathy Deano, co-founder of Painting with a Twist.

"Through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, we have the

opportunity to collectively honor our troops and their families on

Veteran's Day."

As part of the businesses' commitment to give back through painting

parties, local Painting with a Twist studios hold charity events each

month through Painting with a Purpose. The program has raised nearly $1

million for local non-profit organizations.

At Painting with a Twist, guests come together to experience a unique

'getaway' that includes friends, paint and the option to BYOB. Led by

local art instructors, guests paint on bare canvases using paint and

brushes provided by the studio. There are more than 4,000 original

pieces of copyrighted artwork, ranging from landscapes, abstracts and

cityscapes, to creative renderings of animals, iconic buildings and

florals, which have all been conceptualized and produced by Painting

with a Twist art instructors.
