Dynamics hosts "Sip and Paint" fundraiser

Dynamics Community Theater will have its first "Sip and Paint" Fundraiser at Sammie's, 498 South Ave. in Tallmadge on April 27 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Those attending will enjoy selections from Sammie's appetizer menu and complimentary beverages while painting "Tree Silhouette" on a 16 x 20 canvas. Connie Kramer, who does set design and for the theater, will guide the participants step-by-step. Kramer says that no artistic experience is necessary, and most people find that painting is fun and relaxing.

The cost of the event is $50, which includes everything. Proceeds from the event will support Dynamics Community Theater, whose upcoming shows include the local premier of "The Addams Family Musical" this August.
