CANCELED! Baby Yoda Paint-N-Sip Fundraiser with an Astronaut!

Hello,
Unfortunately, due to the new suggested mandate regarding the COVID-19 virus, we are canceling our Paint and Sip fundraiser.

We will gladly refund your money upon request. Should you instead choose to donate some or all of it, we will send you a signed personalized photo from Astronaut Hoot Gibson.

As you can imagine cancelling a fundraiser is a tough blow for us, we appreciate your support during this on going difficult time.
