Art Was Flow­ing At Paint Nite Fundraiser

Riverbank News - - THE RIVERBANK NEWS -

The Paint Nite fundraiser for the An­nual Veter­ans Lun­cheon was held this past Fri­day, Aug. 24 at the River­bank Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. Ac­cord­ing to event or­ga­nizer Diane Tal­bert, the event was great and well at­tended. Along with the $15 from each Paint Nite ticket sale, they also hosted a potato bar that had all the fix­ings that helped raise $545. The fam­ily friendly event did not have any al­co­hol which al­lowed guests of all ages to at­tend.

“We were pleas­antly sur­prised,” added Tal­bert. “There were 39 at­ten­dees so we were very pleased. Through­out the event peo­ple were laugh­ing and com­par­ing art­work. It was a lot of fun.”

The An­nual Veter­ans Lunch will be held at a new lo­ca­tion since the River­bank Com­mu­nity Cen­ter will not be avail­able due to planned ren­o­va­tions. The lunch will be held at the Stanis­laus Veter­ans Cen­ter, 3500 Cof­fee Road in Modesto on Satur­day, Nov. 3. The ad­di­tional funds raised at Paint Nite will help pay for uti­liz­ing the new venue. The lun­cheon is by reser­va­tion only and reser­va­tions will be­gin on Sept. 10 and close Oct. 22.
