Unleash your community’s inner artistic side with a tea party accompanied by a step-by-step painting lesson. You can teach the class yourself or ask a local artist to help. Participants get to socialize and leave with a masterpiece, and they won't even have to clean up the mess! Charge a flat rate to join the party, which will help cover the cost of materials as well as serve as a donation to your cause. Make sure to advertise the cause the event will benefit, as people might be inclined to donate more knowing that you’re helping others.
