About the Event
Paintings & Pairings began in 2012 as a smaller gathering of Insight supporters who came together to enjoy the creative pursuits of our day center participants. Our art therapy program had just begun, and we saw the event as a wonderful way to highlight our participant’s talents. All of the paintings were for sale, along with a few tempting raffle item packages. And of course, what would an evening be without a little food or drink? We welcomed our guests with delicious hors d’oeuvres that were paired with chef recommended wine selections for an extra treat. And thus Paintings & Pairings was born, as we celebrated Insight through art and wine.
The event has grown each year, from 100 attendees in 2012 to nearly 400 last year! With all the growth, you’ll still see many of the original elements included in the event each year. Paintings include participant artwork, along with the works of local artists who are connected to our center and our cause. We have also expanded the raffle into a full silent and live auction, providing even more fun – and friendly competition! – during the evening. Pairings will still welcome you; hors d’oeuvres and wine pairings are waiting to be enjoyed at the start of the event, but now you can also look forward to a delicious sit-down dinner with Insight friends.
What hasn’t changed is that all the proceeds from the event ensure families and our community are getting the support and care they need when faced with a dementia diagnosis. Thank you to so many that have celebrated with us from the beginning and we welcome those attending Paintings & Pairings for the first time this year!
