Fundraiser – Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary

July 11 at 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT


The Sipping Muse is partnering with the Loretto Sisters of the Insitute of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Wheaton for a Paint and Sip fundraising event.  The Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, located in Wheaton, and is a worldwide religious community of vowed Catholic women dedicated to serving God by responding to the needs of God’s people.  Although education was its primary work, Sisters now serve in a wide variety of educational, pastoral, and social ministries.   For more information on this organization, visit website at https://ibvm.us/.

Paint Fee is $40 per person, with a portion of these fees donated to the charity.  Painting to be taught is “Spring Blossoms”

Fee includes all paint supplies, a 16×20 canvas, wine/beverages and light snacks.  The event will be led by an experienced art instructor, providing step-by-step instructions.  No experience necessary.  No coupons or discounts accepted for fundraisers.  We ask that guests under 18 be accompanied by an adult.

Raffle tickets will be sold the day of the event for some great prizes!
