As Lunch Break prepares for its fifth annual Gala, the Red Bank-based nonprofit plans an online auction of iconic photographs by famed photographer Mark Weiss to benefit its 30-year mission of helping those community members in need.  His photos of rock and roll celebrities from the 1970s and 80s—all signed by Weiss and his subjects — are known by the campaign name, “Feels Like the First Time,” borrowed from the Foreigner song.

These unique limited edition photographs are from the first time Weiss photographed each artist, and are hand picked from his extensive archives spanning over 35 years. Included in last year’s pre-Gala online auction were photos by Weiss of artists:  Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Debbie Harry of Blondie, and KISS. These photos resulted in a substantial donation to Lunch Break.

The auction will be conducted on  Charitybuzz  from Wednesday, September 24, to October 15 (take it here for information about the auction and when it goes live.  Charitybuzz gives its bidders exclusive opportunities to make a difference, and live their dreams through online charity auctions with celebrities and luxury brands.
