Art with Heart to host benefit, promotes arts on isle, abroad

Art with Heart, the student-run philanthropic arts club of Seabury Hall, will present its fourth benefit showcase of student produced fine and performing arts beginning at 5:30 p.m. March 30.

Held in the new ‘A’ali’ikuhonua Creative Arts Center, the event will consist of a gallery and silent auction of fine art accompanied by food, refreshments and live music.

A live performance of music, acting, dance and poetry readings will follow at 7 p.m.

All proceeds from the show will support Art with Heart’s goals to promote the arts and education on Maui and abroad. This year, the club will support an elementary school in Nicaragua, where Seabury Hall volunteers worked this past February through the organization Outreach 360.

Locally, the club brings art projects to the children at the Ke Hale A Ke Ola homeless shelter and to the special-needs adolescents in the Best Buddies program.

The club has $4,928.32 and is hoping to reach its goal of $10,000 by the end of the year.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. To reserve tickets, call 573-1257.
