Benevilla is excited to announce their fundraiser “Colorful Memories” Paint In & Auction, a collaborative effort between Benevilla and Ground Floor Artists, two nonprofit organizations in the Valley.

On Saturday, April 6, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., immerse yourself in a celebration of creative aging, supporting local artists and fostering philanthropy and community wellbeing. This unique fundraising event will be held at the Ground Floor Artists gallery located at 13343 W Foxfire Dr. #3, in Surprise.

The event highlights include a live painting spectacle where you will experience the magic of talented artists transforming blank canvases into captivating masterpieces and witness their creative processes unfold right before your eyes and connecting you in a personal way to each piece of artwork. There will be a themed exhibit and painted chair competition where you can explore the diversity of the local art scene talent and see one-of-a-kind pieces from members of both Ground Floor Artists and the Benevilla Life Enrichment programs.

There will also be a creative networking zone where you can engage with the artists in a casual and interactive setting. Learn about their inspirations, their techniques, and the stories and memories behind their creations. Both hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available to enjoy snacks and cocktails while perusing the exhibits and mingling with guests. There will also be several mobile eats options on-site.

The evening will be capped off with a live art auction where you can bid on artwork you witnessed being brought to life, allowing you to take home a favorite piece of the evening’s magic.
