A new event feature for the Boston Celtics and The TD Garden, Paint Night. This paint night event support Operation Delta Dog, featured a drawing of a Golden Labrador Retriever wearing a collar with a shamrock. 65 people attended the Paint Night event, and all of them also get a tickets to the Celtics game as well.
