What is the value of art? Is it a frivolous hobby or a creative outlet necessary for emotional health?
Coming up this weekend is a three-day fundraiser designed to provoke such musings. The second annual Women of Song event is being held to promote the arts in Monmouth County through music, poetry, and performance. It kicks off Friday at the Womans Club of Red Bank before continuing on to Ocean Township and Asbury Park over the weekend.
Organizers Maxine Snow and Helen-Chantel Pike co-founded the event, with help from Brenda Wirth and Jenny Woods, to rectify what they saw as a lack of representation for female talent in the Jersey Shore area, said Snow.
