Comments:

  • It was perfect, we had such a wonderful evening. To provide additional funds for VSA Nevada programs in schools and other facilities is an added bonus!
  • What a unique and fun girl’s night out.
  • I paint perhaps as well as a second grader, but my husband and sons thought my painting was great.
