Susan, on behalf of the
Paw Paw Grad Bash, I would
like to thank you for the opportunity
to join up with you and the Thirsty
Painter's club as a fund raiser. It was great
to have a fun girl's night out, and make some easy cash to support our cause. You are so patient & so good at teaching us. You make painting easy & fun, even for a clueless person like me!!! We had so much fun laughing with
our friends & laughing at ourselves!!! We even ended up with pictures that we could
hang up or give away. So thank
you again. We had a great time!!! #greatestfundraiserever

fundraisers work the same as private parties, but you get to set the ticket price​. $3o from each ticket covers admission, anything over that is for your cause to keep! Most fundraiser tickets go for $45-$50 each. Fundraisers can be private or open to the public, and you chose the painting & the venue! ​​
