— On Saturday and Sunday, March 15-16, the Warwick Foundation for Excellence in Learning raised $495 partnering with Wine and Design art studio, a franchise located in the Meadowcrest Plaza at 133 Route 94 South, which offers a range of art classes including paint it forward fund raisers.

"Wine and Design of Warwick would like to thank the community for its support of this business," said owner Jennifer Marsh. "In return, we are happy to give back by supporting the local school district and its students."

During the weekend guests had an opportunity, for an admission fee of $55 to spend two hours at the studio painting with their friends and enjoying the wine of their choice with dessert. And, after the class, they could take their masterpieces home.

Wine and Design donated 25 per cent of the total sales to the Warwick Foundation for Excellence in Learning.

"We were thrilled to work with Jennifer Marsh and the members of her art studio, Wine and Design, an innovative local business," said Warwick Foundation for Excellence in Learning Chair Vanessa Holland. "We are also grateful to Peck's Wine and Spirits, Eat Sweet and Country Courtesy catering for their contributions."
