Looking for a fun night to connect with others and create some art? The Hackettstown Rotary Club is holding a fundraiser that shouldn’t be missed!
The Club is holding a Harvest Paint and Sip Night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 12, 2020. It is a virtual Zoom event where attendees will learn painting skills and techniques while being guided by a professional artist. Participants will learn how to paint a festive pumpkin (flier is attached) from the comfort and safety at home.
“We decided to move forward with this fundraiser to help supplement the loss of our largest fundraiser Madness Memorial Day Car Show due to COVID-19,” says Laurie Rapisardi, Hackettstown Rotary Club’s President and Hackettstown BID Executive Director. “It is a great way to support a wonderful organization, plus experience a fun-filled evening with other community members virtually. All proceeds for this project is earmarked for the Himalayan Cataract Project.”

The cost is $35 per ticket and the price includes a 16” x 20” canvas, paint and brushes. Participants will be learning from a professional from ART.stitution in Hackettstown. Supplies can be picked up at the Hackettstown BID office by appointment only. Please schedule a pickup time by calling Laurie Rapisardi at (908) 455-0179. Materials can be delivered locally upon request. An easel and smock can be added at checkout at an additional cost.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to bond with another family member who has an interest in art or just spend some time unwinding and relaxing,” says Dr. Linda Poisseroux, Director of Enactus and Assistant Professor of Business and Chair of the Virtual Harvest Paint and Sip Fundraiser. “The painting is very easy to create under the instruction that participants will receive. It is not necessary to be an experienced painter to be able to create a masterpiece!”
About Hackettstown Rotary Club
The 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man, Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
Becoming a Rotarian connects people with a diverse group of professionals who share a drive to give back. The Hackettstown Rotary Club meets weekly and discusses ways and creates programs to better the community.
