CANVAS AND COCKTAILS
ACAD is hosting its first-ever AIA Denver fundraiser at Canvas and Cocktails (249 Clayton Street, Denver, CO 80206) on Monday, Nov. 7. Artistic or not, come and paint your own canvas of the Denver Skyline, with instruction by in-house artist, and enjoy music, snacks and the company of fellow AIA Denver members. Tickets are $40 per person and cover the cost of light appetizers, paint, paint brushes and your own take-home 16″ x 20″ canvas! Beverages can also be purchased at the bar. Ten dollars from each ticket will benefit AIA Denver, and we would love your support. Invite guests, friends, spouses, etc – all are welcome – better yet, make it a staff outing for your entire office! Event begins at 6:30 p.m.
**To reserve a ticket, contact Canvas and Cocktails directly at 303.333.3288. **
