Birmingham area alumni of Samford University's Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing are invited to a painting party Tuesday, April 24, at 6 p.m. in the Pete Hanna Center on campus.

All participants will leave the event with a canvas painting of the Healing Angel statue that is located on the plaza of the nursing school building at Samford.

Participants are asked to make a $20 donation to the nursing school.  For information and reservations, email nursing school director of advancement and alumni affairs Katie Stripling at or call (205) 726-2265. Reservations are requested by April 20.

A similar event in Georgia last month was well-received by members of the Moffett Nurse Network.

"Alumni enjoyed getting to know one another and sharing nursing school memories while painting their canvases," said Stripling, adding that participants left the painting party with their own masterpieces and numerous new friends.
