U Paint event creates the picture of success

June 8, 2012

The Arizona State University Alumni Association nurtured the talents of 60 budding artists at its June 5 U Devils U Paint event, where ASU faculty and staff enjoyed food, drinks and great music while learning to paint alongside their Sun Devil colleagues.

Old Main’s Carson Ballroom was transformed into an artists’ studio for the event. U Devils were supplied with canvases and painting materials by The Brush Bar in Scottsdale. Brush Bar’s painting experts guided the U Devils as they created their masterpieces. U Devils at U Paint event June 2012 Download Full Image

Raffle drawings were held every 30 minutes and prizes included a two-night stay at the Arizona Grand Resort, Arizona Diamondbacks tickets, all-new ASU pitchfork watches, a Sparky prize pack, and plenty of ASU-themed merchandise. U Devil members were able to attend the event at no cost, thanks to a generous sponsorship from affinity partner Liberty Mutual.

The U Devils group, which is the official ASU faculty and staff group of the Alumni Association, has grown tremendously since it was launched in 2007, thanks primarily to robust employee-to-employee recruitment. U Devils receive invitations to exclusive events and have frequent opportunities to participate in enjoyable contests and promotions.

To become a U Devil, faculty and staff can join the Alumni Association at a special rate ($25 annual/$300 life). It is possible to pay for the life membership over the course of a year via payroll deduction by downloading a membership form.
