Painting with a Twist 2010 Top Producer in Lafayette
Painting with a Twist 2010 Top Producer Award goes to Lafayette's Painting with a Twist owner, Tammy Milam. Tammy is a Top Producer in more ways than one, as one of her top priorities is her commitment to give back to the community. It is her popularity with the community which has made Painting with a Twist the all-around best evening out AND best value, and her gratitude is reflected in her generosity. She and her great team of artists hold monthly Painting with a Purpose events for local nonprofits. In 2010 Tammy hosted benefits for such worthy causes as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the PHI Food Drive,the Change Agent Network, Haiti Missions, the Jacobs Foundation, the American Cancer Society, the Wild Cat Foundation, and others. In March, Tammy hosted a benefit for Trees Acadiana, donating 80% to the organization, which is dedicated to planting and conserving trees, urban and community forests. The primary goal of the organization is to maintain the community’s living environment.
Painting with a Twist strives to bring out your inner artist, and urges you to come alone or grab a friend or two, your favorite beverage, and create the evening’s painting.
