Paint Night FUNDRAISING Gallery

27 people participated the Paint Night for fundraiser to PAD/GPCCD Women’s softball team. The host said, This was by far the MOST enlightening Paint Nite I have taught thus far. I worked with an interpreter for the first time with a culture I have never before been submerged in. I may have had more fun than they did! Great Job PAD!!! Click below to view the gallery.
