Painting with a Twist in Lafayette hosted a fun fund raiser today.

The business offered a Painting with a Purpose session today; participants could paint for a fee, with half the proceeds going to support St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Each month, franchisees from across the nation hold fundraisers through the company’s Painting with a Purpose program to benefit local charities. To date, Painting with a Twist locations have donated more than $4.8 million to local charities.

“This is Painting with a Twist called Painting with a Purpose, so they’re going to give back the proceeds to St. Jude,” said Alison Landry. “It takes a lot of money to operate day to day activities at St. Jude. Its $2.8 million a day, actually, so any little bit we can do to help further those operations is wonderful.”
