So paintball hurts, makes a mess and really tires you out. But Paintball (notice the capital P) is tremendously fun and fulfilling. Find out for yourself at this cleverly named fundraiser for Women in Charge, an organization that seeks to help needy women and their children improve their lives through education, counseling and more (www.womenincharge.org). The Paintball festivities begin at 7 p.m. with hors doeuvres, wine, beer and live music, and continue until 11 p.m. Tickets cost $35 (at 800-838-3006 or www.brownpapertickets.com) and include all of the above, but youll want to bring along some extra cash for the art auction. Fifty local artists have donated works for the cause, so you just might leave Paintball with a piece by Katy Fischer, Juan William Chávez, Shawn Lipe, Sara Arnold or one of St. Louis other favorites! The party takes place at the Centene Center for Arts and Education (3547 Olive Street), and all of the proceeds benefit Women in Charge.
