Students Fund ‘Not for Sale’ through Paint-a-Thon

OBU students sacrificed a night of sleep as they sought inspiration for artwork to help raise funds for a good cause during OBU’s Paint-a-Thon Thursday, April 7.

The event, which started at 9 p.m. and lasted all night, launched “Blitz Week,” a fun-filled week of activities that raises money for various non-profit organizations or humanitarian efforts. This year, Blitz Week will raise money for the Not For Sale Campaign, which seeks to end human trafficking and to re-abolish slavery in America and around the world.

Students had the option of keeping their painting or donating them to be sold on Monday, April 11, during the Blitz Week art auction. Most paintings will be sold for $3 to $5, and there will be a silent auction section at the sale for some of the pieces.

OBU students Ethan Stevens, Avery Ketchum, Shannon Anderson and Ben Campbell participate in OBU’s all-night Paint-a-Thon to benefit the Not For Sale Campaign. Stevens is a freshman from Oklahoma City; Ketchum is a freshman from Broken Arrow, Okla.; Anderson is a freshman from Choctaw, Okla.; and Campbell is a freshman from Arnold, Md.
