Painting with a Twist to Host Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Painting with a Twist studios located in Cypress, Katy and Sugar Land, Texas will welcome guests on Sunday, February 19th 2-5PM at a special Painting with a Purpose paint class to raise funds for breast cancer research. The studio will offer refreshments and a give-away during the paint pARTy.  The fundraiser will benefit Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer.
“We’re delighted to partner with Painting with a Twist studio to raise funds for breast cancer research,” says Catherine Hill, executive director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. “Our family of committed partners is growing and we love their help in spreading the word about the important work of the Vera Bradley Foundation.”

Vera Bradley owners Barbara Baekgaard and Patricia Miller founded the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer in 1998. To date, it has contributed $15 million to the world-renowned research team in the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis. The team of researchers at the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories is making significant progress and gaining national recognition for their work in the following areas:

  • Detection of cancer long before tumors form
  • Identification of women at high risk for developing breast cancer
  • Breast cancer prevention discoveries
  • Safer and more effective therapies through individualized therapy based on genetics
  • Better treatment of recurrences of breast cancer and prevention of metastasis
  • Enhancing lives of survivors through approaches that improve both length and quality of life

Impressive sales of the Vera Bradley breast cancer awareness colors generate part of this revenue, but another significant portion is the donors like Painting with a Twist studios and those that support their events. For more information about the Vera Bradley Foundation, visit verabradley.org.  Online reservations are strongly encouraged, due to limited seating. Fee is $45/each and 50% of the net proceeds will be donated to this worthy cause.
