Paint-Nite Aug. 20!

We are raising funds, in a fun way, to help preserve the architectural history and significance of our historic Gothic churches in Cobble Hill (St. Paul) and Carroll Gardens (St. Agnes) for generations to come.  AND, we will have fun doing it!  All are invited to attend:  men, women, couples (sorry no children).

At Paint-Nite, a professional artist will guide you step-by-step while you create (paint) an “original masterpiece” of your own.  Channel your inner “Van Gogh” and enjoy 2 fun-filled hours of painting and socializing for a great cause.  No experience necessary.  We provide all the supplies so you don’t have to worry about a thing, except having a great time.  Did I say refreshments will be served?   Best of all Paint-Nite is donating a portion a of all ticket sales to support our cause.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 20 from 7-9 PM, at St. Paul’s Church. 

You must register online here.

 

We are all busy, busy, busy!  AND it’s so easy to get distracted and forget to register.  Please sign up today, while it’s still fresh in your mind, and then invite others to share this event with you.  Even though the date seems far away, we must meet a deadline, which is why I’m asking you to sign up today!  Thank you.
