On Saturday, March 25, 2017 NOW held two fundraising paint events with Artique at their new location at 135 Main Street in Putnam. Both events were sold out, with 84 people attending in total. Friendly Spirits donated beer and wine for both events, with light appetizers and desserts donated by The Lunch Box Catering Co. A total of $840 was donated by Artique to NOW from the two events. The donation will fund two NOW Book Awards to be given to two graduating Woodstock Academy students in June of 2017 who have shown a commitment to fitness and youth mentoring. This is the third year NOW and Artique have partnered on this fundraiser.
