The winner of our $25,000 Intuit Hiring Grant for June is Sipping n’ Painting of Denver, Colorado.  Co-owner Susie Grade was thrilled to hear that her 1.5-year-old business would be able to move to the next level using this grant.

Sipping n’ Painting aims to help the community of Denver by allowing adults to experience creativity and art through evening painting classes at their location.  In their self nomination, Susie said, “We long to serve our community by encouraging them to use the right side of their brain in a creative way that is not only fun, but good for our humanity.  We believe that art is for everybody.”

Susie said that she and her co-owner plan to use the money to open a second site, something they have dreamed of since day one. By opening a second location, the company will be able to serve more customers and hire more staff.

Sipping n’ Painting is now the third of three finalists to be eligible for an additional $25,000 grant.  They join Party Girls Event Planning and Devolution Solutions as finalists.

It’s not too late to be featured in our next winner’s announcement for the month of July!  We will have a whopping 11 winners selected in July: Nominate your business today and you could be one of them!
