It’s time once again for Paint the Town Red, Fayetteville.

The event, also known as “the party with a purpose,” is an annual fundraiser for the American Heart Association, and takes place from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21 at the Fayetteville Town Center.

The party features food, drinks, a silent auction, and music by Boom Kinetic. (That means there will be dancing.)

According to the AHA website, the event raised over $100,000 last year, and organizers hope to increase that amount to $140,000 in 2012.
