throughout November to Honor Veterans

MANDEVILLE, La.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Painting
with a Twist®
, the original and largest paint-and-sip franchise,
will host fundraising events throughout November to benefit the Special
Operations Warrior Foundation
through the company’s charitable arm, Painting
with a Purpose.

With more than 60 participating studios nationwide, guests can visit http://paintingwithatwist.com/promos/special-operations

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides children of special

“It is extremely rewarding to host Painting with a Purpose events at
studios nationwide to honor those who have given their lives in service
to our country,” said Renee Maloney co-founder of Painting with a Twist.
“Through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, we, as a brand, have
the opportunity to give back to our troops and their families not only
on Veterans Day, but all November long.”

As part of the businesses’ commitment to give back through painting
parties, local Painting with a Twist studios hold charity events each
month through Painting with a Purpose. The program has raised nearly $2
million for local non-profit organizations.

At Painting with a Twist, guests come together to experience a unique
‘getaway’ that includes friends, paint and the option to BYOB. Led by
local art instructors, guests paint on bare canvases using paint and
brushes provided by the studio. There are more than 6,000 original
pieces of copyrighted artwork, ranging from landscapes, abstracts and
cityscapes, to creative renderings of animals, iconic buildings and
florals, which have all been conceptualized and produced by Painting
with a Twist art instructors.
