CREATIVITY COMES IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS!UPDATE: TEAM PAJAMA LLAMAS WINS A FIRST PLACE AT GLOBALS! We are all so proud of both teams and are happy we here at Pinot's Palette-Allen/Fairview were able to help get you there!
This is a story is about Pinot's Palette's-Allen/Fairview's May, 2016 PAINT IT FORWARD fund raising recipients. It's about two groups of talented Allen kids, their hard work and the journey they hope to be able to make the end of May to the Destination Imagination Global Finals Tournament being held at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
Each month Pinot's Palette-Allen/Fairview selects at least 1 503(c) Non-Profit group or organization to benefit from a percentage of sales during one of our Public Sip & Paint classes. In May - we want to support two different teams that have earned the privilege to compete on a global stage and represent not only Allen, Texas... but the United States!
Meet the two wonderful teams!
TEAM PAJAMA LLAMAS: These kids have had the honor of placing first at Regional competition in the state of Texas for the past several years and recently snagging a third place win at the State level in 2016, which is a huge honor considering Texas has the largest competitive Destination Imagination teams compared to all other states! These kids are now headed to Global competition in Knoxville, TN to compete against other kids their age from around the world. This is a lifetime opportunity and you can help make that happen! The team needs to raise $7000 by May 20 to help pay for travel, lodging, and admission into the competition for them and their guardians. They send out a huge thank you to Reba and Jennifer, their amazing team managers for helping wrangle this group all year as they finally get to live the dream.
TEAM: SIX ACTORS (In Search of a Team Name) is made up of six amazing, bright, problem-solving, innovative kids who have earned the ability to compete with 8,000+ other students from 20+ countries at the world's largest celebration of creativity and problem solving.
These kids have worked hard. We are looking for help getting them there - Please make your reservation to paint with us here at Pinot's Palette on May 17th or May 18th and we will donate 25% of each seat sold to these teams so that they can represent Allen, Texas on a global stage! Teams travel from all over the world to attend. In a way, they are very lucky...they just have to get there from Allen,TX!

Here is hoping you can come and paint with us on May 17th &/or May 18th and support some exceptionally talented and gifted kids!
Are you interested in fund raising for your non-profit organization or group - we would love to help you out!
