“We're delighted to partner with The Knights of Columbus to help raise money for the victims of the tragic event in West, TX,” says Kimberly Wells, owner. “As a graduate of Baylor University, West to me was what Gladewater/Kilgore is to Longview, and Lindale/Bullard is to Tyler. I had classes with people that grew up in West so this really hit close to home for me.”
In the aftermath of the tragic explosion in West, Texas, Knights of Columbus Charities has established a relief fund to provide assistance to the victims of that disaster. The Knights of Columbus are a 501(c)3 organization and 100% of the donations go to West, TX Disaster Relief.
In addition to supporting the local community, Painting with a Twist of Longview also offers private parties for corporate outings, bachelorette parties, sorority functions, date nights and special events.
