LAUGHLIN — Tickets for the third annual Freedom of Expression “Whiskey & Wood” event are on sale now. 

The event takes place July 25 at the Golden Nugget Laughlin and tickets cost $40 per person. This is strictly a 21-plus event as alcohol is served. 

The ticket fee includes an

artist instructor-led lesson, canvas, paint, paintbrush, appetizers, and whiskey. All funds raised benefit Tri-state schools and their art programs.

“It was apparent where we wanted the money to go when promoting this event,” said Jackie Mazzeo, the Laughlin Nevada Chamber of Commerce executive director. “I was made aware that art programs are always the first to get cut. 

“Our youth absolutely need a way to express themselves; whether that be through music, painting, photography, or any other medium.”

The total amount donated from the event thus far is $8,300. Those funds are split between four school districts and six charter schools in the Tri-state.

No talent or experience is required to participate. Instructors and volunteers will be there to help guide you along the way to create your personal vision of freedom, liberty, and patriotism.

Local celebrities will be in attendance to show off their own personal works of artwork. An auction will also be at the event and you can include your masterpiece in it. All auction proceeds also help art programs.

For more information, call the Laughlin Chamber at 702-298-2214.
