On Saturday evening, October 10, 2015, a group of 12 friends held a canvas painting social and fundraiser for UPAWS at HotPlate in Marquette. In addition to the costs associated with the HotPlate painting session, they asked each person to donate a minimum of $15 to UPAWS along with items from the UPAWS Wish List.

The event was a great success! Many Wish List Items were delivered to UPAWS along with a $355 donation! Wow!

The event was organized by Pam Benton, Mary Bullock and Kristi Dahlstrom who provided adult beverages and appetizers. Many, many thanks to HotPlate staff and Sue Kensington for their hospitality and flexibility allowing the very fun and productive event to occur. Also, we cannot thank Joe Heck (Joe’s Cakes) for his trio of delicious desserts which were the hit of the evening.

Thank you HotPlate and everyone that participated in this event! We are very impressed with the results and so thankful for all the gifts!
