The Rossland Me to We group is partnering with the VISAC Galllery to host a paint night on Friday, June 10, 6:30-9 p.m., that will benefit Project Somos, an orphan prevention organization. The project supports widowed and single mothers in Guatamala who are at-risk of losing their children because of poverty and difficult living situations. Project Somos offers families homes, food, life skills, education and vocational training.

Local artist Kristen Renn will provide instruction to help you create your own paint and mixed media masterpiece during the evening. Tickets are $50 and include your first drink and any supplies you’ll need. They’re available for purchase at New Edition Café and Books.

There will also be a shuttle to VISAC leaving New Edition at 6 p.m. and returning at the end of the evening. The cost is $5 and spots are limited, so sign up when you purchase your tickets.

Find out more about Project Somos by visiting projectsomos.org.
