Tickets to the Bob Ross Experience, taking place from 5:00PM – 8:00PM, will be $40 plus a handling fee. Price includes small appetizers, available from 5:00PM to 6:00PM, followed by a 2-hour class taught by a Bob Ross certified artist. The price also includes paint supplies, a canvas, and perhaps most importantly, a Bob Ross wig to rock throughout the event! The event will be held at The Winking Lizard Event Center located at 25200 Miles Rd., Bedford, OH 44146.

“We are so excited to bring back the Bob Ross Experience, a fundraiser that has raised over $8,000 to help grant wishes for children in our community” said Robin Carpenter, Marketing and Events Manager of A Special Wish Foundation.

A Special Wish Cleveland is a local non-profit organization that grants wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses between birth and up to 20 years of age.  ASW kiddos seek treatment at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Children’s and Akron Children’s Hospital.

A Special Wish Foundation encourages all attendees to wear their best denim outfits as they channel their inner Bob Ross while creating their own artistic masterpieces.
