Paint a Pet Portrait To Support StreetDog Foundation
Pinot’s Palette-Sanderlin is a paint and sip art studio that hosts private parties, corporate team building and mobile events, among other things, in Memphis, Tennessee. In addition, Pinot’s Palette supports local charities, and on December 4, Pinot’s Palette-Sanderlin is hosting a unique pet charity paint and sip.
This is the fourth year that the studio has hosted an Annual Project Pet event, and this year, there will be a high-tech method for painting your pet’s portraits! Owner of Pinot’s Palette-Sanderlin Diane Barney says that pictures of participant’s pets will be pre-printed on canvas and each participant in the fundraiser will have a color photo of their pet for reference when creating their masterpiece. As in years past, where hand sketches or paper transfers were used, this year, guests will also be able to choose from a variety of different background styles for their portraits.
This popular event continues to grow each year, as guests are able to enjoy a fun evening while supporting a worthy pet cause. The event is a reasonable $65, and of that, $20 will be donated to the Streetdog Foundation. Streetdog Foundation, which has rescued over 750 pets from the shelters and streets of Memphis was started by a couple who went looking for a lost dog at an animal shelter and realized they had to do more for all the animals there. Streetdog Foundation founders Melanie and Kent Pafford are committed to the well-being of the shelter dogs and their human family members, and their goal is to find the right fits for shelter and street dogs in the right households with the just-right families. Streetdog Foundation relies on volunteerism and donations, so the generosity of Pinot’s Palette-Sanderlin truly helps dogs find their furever homes.
Pinot’s Palette Sanderlin is taking reservations now, as the event sold out last year, and if you are in the area and would like to paint your pet and give to a good [s]paws[/s] cause, you can register here at Pinot’s Palette or call them at 901-761-0012. You’re sure to enjoy yourself, and you’re painting it forward at the same time!
