JWCC Sponsoring Paint Party and Social to Benefit College for Life Program

Paint the Town logoJohn Wood Community College is sponsoring an event to benefit the College for Life (CFL) program. Paint the Town will be held on Friday, June 1, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Town & Country Suites in Quincy. 

The painting party will give participants a chance to paint a personalized canvas with Cheryl Schutte, instructor from the Paint Pad. Appetizers will be offered in addition to a cash bar. Participants may paint or choose to socialize based on their preference. 

JWCC created the CFL program last summer to provide opportunities to students 18 years and older with developmental and learning disabilities to go to college. The program’s mission is to help students with developmental and intellectual disabilities gain skills, knowledge and confidence for increased contribution to the greater community as coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Cost to attend is $50 per person, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the CFL. The event venue is sponsored by Blessing Health System. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information or to make reservations, contact Barb Woodyard, administrative assistant to the JWCC Community Foundation, at 217.641.4105 or email woodyard@jwcc.edu.
