Beware The Cosmic Light Bulb August 19, 2016

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!
