Students in Don Vincent’s Com 460 class held their Art For Life fundraiser in the West Herr Atrium last week to raise money for S.P.U.D.S. (Suicide Prevention and Understanding Different Signs). Art For Life had live music by Ryan Zunner; another member who ran the event; an art exhibit, snacks, and a Chinese Auction.
“We got a lot of donations from a lot of local companies, and a lot of paintings from several local artists who are in school and out of school, Amanda Mituzas, and event organizer, said, “It was all for a good cause for suicide prevention.”
The event had a favorable turnout, raising $320 to donate to the charity. Students were pleased to have been able to help this non-profit organization. “Our turn out was really great, way better than I expected, especially for a small school,” Mituzas said. “Thank you to everyone who donated to put the event in motion and donated to the cause.”
