On Thursday, July 28, 2016, the Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance Young Professionals Group (MHSA YPG) held “Paint for a Purpose,” an evening of painting and networking at The Paint Bar on Newbury Street in Boston.
Young professionals from the Greater Boston area connected while painting their interpretations of a “Beacon Hill doorway.” As a part of the event, attendees were given the option to donate their paintings to newly-housed MHSA tenants. A majority of young professionals in attendance opted to do so, adding special “welcome home” notes on the back of their canvases.
Special thanks to The Paint Bar for generously donating the event space and $10 for each ticket sold!
