MarianneKligman &8226 Reader Submitted &8226 February 24, 2009 On Friday, February 27, 2009, the very talented arts students at Red Bank Regional (RBR) will

auction off their art work for a very worthy cause, Amanda's Easel, an organization which provides art therapy to families suffering from abuse. Amanda's Easel is a program operated by 180 Turning Lives Around, a Monmouth County non-profit organization. The event, entitled &8220Art for Heart's Sake&8221 takes place in the RBR school cafeteria in Little Silver at 6:30 to 8:30 pm and is organized by the RBR National Art Honor Society (NAHS). This represents the fourth year the NAHS had organized the charity art auction. Last year's event was very successful and raised over $3,000 surpassing the goal and expectations of the society's members. The National Art Honor Society was founded in 1978 for high schools students from grades 10-12. It recognizes and distinguishes students who display an aptitude and avid interest in the field of art, helps them to attain their artistic goals to the best of their abilities, and provides opportunities for its members to contribute to local community charity events. 180 Turning Lives Around is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to ending domestic violence, family violence, abuse, and sexual assault in the community.
