AWAIC Paint Nite

Wednesday, August 31 7:00PM

Hard Rock Cafe 415 E. Street Anchorage, AK

$45.00
Event details:
Raise your glass to a NEW kind of night out! Paint Nite® invites you to create your own unique piece of art, guided by a professional artist and party host. You’ll spend two hours painting, laughing, and flexing your creative muscles. There’s no experience necessary and we’ll provide all the supplies, so you don’t have to worry about a thing (except having a great time!).

Since 1977, AWAIC has been providing domestic violence safe shelter, intervention, and resources to women, men, and children in the Anchorage community. We are committed to providing support to victims of domestic violence, their friends, family, and the community as a whole. AWAIC is the largest domestic violence emergency shelter in Alaska, providing a full continuum of services for victims and those who care about them.

A foundation of empowerment is key to help all those affected by domestic violence, allowing them to make positive decisions in their lives. We believe that everyone has the right to live in a fear-free environment and we work toward eliminating domestic violence.

The event begins promptly at the start time listed above. Please allow extra time to find parking and get settled. If you’re coming with a group, make sure you arrive early to get seats together. We look forward to seeing you there!

Fight and Flight

Fight or flight? These 13 international female pilots are doing both — by fighting cancer through an aviation-themed calendar.

Six years ago, 31-year-old Swedish pilot Emelie Bonin was given the kind of devastating news that every human being dreads. She was told she had cervical cancer — a potentially fatal disease that stole the lives of nearly 270,000 women around the world in 2012. But last year, she received a diagnosis that all cancer patients and their loved ones desperately hope for: After a years-long fight, she was in remission.
