Join Us For Our Relay for Life Paint Night


Many in our lives have been lost or are fighting a battle that they never dreamed they would have to. They imagined that this was someone else’s disease. There are so many stories of survival, so many stories of loss and so many stories of pain. We, as a community- as a nation, can help change this horrible pattern for ourselves and for our families. One way is by participating in this event. Why not get together to create a masterpiece and have some fellowship for a worthy cause?

Matchbox Realty cares about you and your family and we want the hurt to end. This Paint Nite will help our Relay for Life event in May of 2018.

Join us as we raise glasses and funds for this worthy cause! When you buy a ticket to this event, $15 will be donated to the charity above. To date, Paint Nite has helped raise over $3.5 million for those in need with lively creative events that feel more fun than philanthropic. Feel good about giving as our local artist guides you and your friends through two hours of painting, drinking, and laughing ‘til your cheeks hurt. The best part? You don’t have to be an artist to have an amazing time!
