Fundraiser FAQ’s:

If I am interested in having a fundraiser for my favorite charity/organization, how soon should I book my
event? We are committed to hosting one fundraiser a month. Please plan your fundraiser months ahead of time. The longer your fundraiser is on our calendar, the more likely it will be a success. Fundraiser dates are awarded on a first-come first-served basis, totally at our discretion. Because our fundraisers are so popular, requests cannot always be honored.

Can fundraiser guests register and pay for my event online? Once we have received your deposit and painting selection, we can create an event registration link so guests can register and pay online. Please understand that there are no vouchers, gift certificates or discount codes allowed as payment towards fundraisers.

Can fundraiser guests pay when they arrive? We accept cash, check and credit cards at the studio; guests can pay individually when they arrive. If they are planning to do this, please ask them to confirm that they are coming in advance to allow for an accurate roster.

What if I do not have enough people for my event? Unfortunately, if less than 10 PAID guests are registered by 24 hours prior to the event start time, we will have to cancel the event. In this case, we will send out a cancellation email to all those registered, and will refund anyone who prepaid online. If we cancel at the last minute like this, unfortunately your deposit would be forfeited.

What if I need to cancel my event? If you make your deposit then need to cancel your event, a full refund, minus any
transaction/supply fees that we have incurred, will be issued if your cancellation is made 10 days prior to event date. Please understand that if you cancel / postpone / reschedule your event with less than 10 days notice, we cannot refund your deposit, unless we find another party/event to take your time slot. If we do book another party/event, we will refund your full deposit, minus any transaction/supply fees we have incurred.
