About your Event: Sunday, June 23 | Grab a paint brush and give a Hoot for Hospice

Pick up a paint brush and join hundreds of artists in Port Perry for a fun, instructor-led Paint Day fundraiser on Perry Street – June 23, 2019. Give a Hoot for Hospice in Memory of Carley Anne Caldwell has challenged the community to reach their goal of five hundred amateur painters putting paint to canvas to raise money for the Oakridges Hospice and the Scugog Council for the Arts.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun and it’s going to make a big impact,” said Steve Caldwell, who is organizing the event in honour of his late daughter Carley Anne Caldwell. Carley passed away from cancer in February 2017.  “She was a talented chef but she also loved painting,” he said.

A number of sponsors have already declared their support and the organizing committee would like to say thank you to JJ McGuire, Long & McQuaid, Homestead Furniture and Appliances, Township of Scugog, Ok Tire, Focus on Scugog, Hometown Printing, META4 Gallery and Foodland. “The support from this amazing community is overwhelming and we are very grateful,” said Steve Caldwell. “This event will provide us with the opportunity to give back to a facility similar to the one that provided so much comfort in a difficult time for Carley Ann and our family.”

The cost per painter to participate is $20. You can also support a painter by donation. Please visit scugogarts.ca/hoot-for-hospice for registration information or to donate. The committee is also looking for volunteers to help with the event. General inquiries can be sent to: scugoghootforhospice@gmail.com
