Press release from Monmoth County Arts Council
For its annual Celebration of the Arts fundraiser, the Red Bank-based Monmouth County Arts Council celebrates the recently established MoCo Arts Corridor initiative — and honors a trio of dedicated individuals from around the greater Red Bank Green — in an event presented under the banner “The Arts Mean Business.”
Scheduled for Friday, October 23 at Edgewater Beach & Cabana Club in Sea Bright, the 7-10 pm occasion features a silent auction, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and buffet dinner, all enhanced by performances and exhibits spotlighting the work of several Monmouth County artists — and all dedicated to the ongoing support of such MCAC programs as the Teen Arts Festival, ArtHelps, and the Arts Education Awards.
Guests of honor at the event will include two familiar faces around Red Bank — longtime Red Bank Visitors Center director Margaret Mass, and Red Bank RiverCenter executive director Jim Scavone — in addition to Brookdale Community College president Dr. Maureen Murphy. Highlighted will be the Arts Corridor project, founded (with the cooperation of NJ Transit) as a way to call attention to creative businesses, nonprofits and individuals at work in communities “from Matawan to Manasquan,” and all other local Monmouth rail stops along the North Jersey Coast Line.
