A Closer Look At Our 11th Annual Project Color Event in Oakland
Serving MOCHA - Museum of Children’s Art in Downtown Oakland
If you follow our blog or social media, you know that our Project Color Painting for Charity event is a highlight of the year for us. It’s also the result of months of planning, accepting nominations from our local community, and offering our friends and neighbors the opportunity to vote for a candidate.
It’s a lengthy process and decision, and this means that we grow more and more invested (and excited about) the project as the months roll along.
This year’s recipient was MOCHA l Museum of Children’s Arts right here in Oakland (if you aren’t familiar with this incredible organization and the work they do, please visit their website). After being voted/chosen to receive $10,000 of free painting services, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work this past Saturday (10-22-16).
Fresh Color, Fresh Encouragement, and a Whole Lot of Teamwork
Starting the day bright and early, we carefully set our plans. The scope of the project called for a clear strategy, and for having everyone on the same page.
We wish we could bottle up the vibe and enthusiasm that filled MOCHA’s space and share it with you directly. From our team happily donating their time to the bright colors on the walls, the environment was charged with positivity.
The next best thing to seeing it in person is to click through the photos above, and definitely watch this video that was live-streamed during the event. It includes a walkthrough of the spaces we painted, a look at the team in action, and a quick chat with Matt Jessee.
We would like to thank you, our local community, for your interest, votes, and helping us spread the word about this fun event. We also would like to thank Sherwin-Williams for generously donating the excellent paint products we used. Our team also deserves a big thank-you for their extra work, initiative, and enthusiasm, and for being the arms and hands of MB Jessee’s community focus.
And, of course, we’d like to thank MOCHA! Keep up the wonderful work you’re doing, and enjoy those fresh colors.
