Painting with a Twist, a social art studio in Auburn, hosts a Painting with a Purpose charity event benefiting the See Ya Later Washington Chapter on Friday, June 7, from 6 to 9 p.m.

The studio will offer a fun-filled evening of painting, socializing and, if last year’s crowd shows again, an entertaining sing-along.

Relax, paint a little bit and have some fun at the Paint and Sip Studio No. 317, 920 15th St SW, 920 15th St. SW, across from The Outlet Collection mall.

Half of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the foundation. Collectively, the Painting with a Twist system has donated more than $3.8 million through local Painting with a Purpose events.

“We’re delighted to partner with See You Later Washington to help raise funds and resources that assist youth and families in the needs arising from challenging illness,” said Ann Marie Natali, Painting with A Twist Auburn owner. “Community involvement is of utmost importance to us – we are thrilled to be helping a See Ya Later Washington and in turn youth and families in need.”

The See Ya Later Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Oregon and Washington that began out of the inspiration of a 12-year old boy who died of cancer. Scott Banke had a zest for life and a courage that motivates the mission of the Foundation: Inspiring Youth – Encouraging Families.

Cost is $35 per seat. The event sold out last year.
