I was over at Wine and Design in Raleigh this morning to meet with the two moms who opened the business last year. The business offers fun painting classes that include step-by-step painting instructions so you don't have to be Picasso to create something you'll want to hang on your wall. You bring your own wine. It's a great idea for moms' nights out, date nights and other events.

I wanted to share some details about a fundraiser they'll be holding this Sunday.

The event is in honor of little Chyler Huebner, whose death last year many of you may remember. Her dad was backing up his Land Rover at about 5 mph when he struck the 18-month-old in November. She died a day later. Learn more about this heartbreaking accident in this interview with the parents.

Chyler attended the preschool program at Hudson Presbyterian Church in Raleigh. Money is being raised to build a playground at the church on April 30 in her memory. The dedication and ribbon cutting will be held on May 10, which would have been her second birthday.

The event at 2 p.m. Sunday is $45. All proceeds will be donated to the project. To register, go to Wine and Design's calendar and click on the Feb. 6 class. The class will be painting a butterfly.
