Paint and SipOn the evening of Saturday, March 19, the volunteers of Red Bank’s Navesink Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 invite the public to “uncork the inner artist you didn’t think existed” and join in a Paint & Sip Fundraiser for the firehouse, located at 7-9 Mechanic Street.

During the adults-only, B.Y.O.B. event scheduled for 7 to 9 pm, participants will take part in a fun beginner-level acrylic painting party, led by a local artist from My Creative Canvas. There’s no prior art experience or drawing talent required; the canvases will already be sketched out for you, and budding painters will be instructed step-by-step how to create their own canvas, leaving with “a finished one-of-a-kind masterpiece of your own and a new talent you’ll want to grow.”

All painting supplies will be furnished for the Paint & Sip session, with attendees urged to bring their creativity and “bring your spouse, a friend, family member, co worker, and don’t forget to bring the Vino!” Also on hand will be light refreshments, plus a gift basket raffle and 50/50, with all proceeds benefitting the all-volunteer Hook & Ladder Company.

Payment of $45 per person and choice of canvas (includes “Hydrangea Flowers” and “Customize Your Favorite Team Jersey”) must be made prior to the event. Space is limited (no tickets will be sold at the door); to reserve via PayPal by March 12, contact Mary Ferraro at (use subject line Paint & Sip) with your canvas selection, full name, and PayPal transaction number.
