On Tuesday, Secret Meals For Hungry Children hosted Art with a Heart at the NorthRiver Yacht Club.

This event served dinner and drinks and held a silent auction of local art that featured original artwork and art that has been generously donated by local Alabama artists.

All proceeds benefit Secret Meals For Hungry Children, which provides nutritional food packs to over 1,500 hungry children in Tuscaloosa every weekend of the school year. Ticket sales went directly to West Alabama’s neediest children.

Alabama Credit Union started this Secret Meals For Hungry Children and this was the first year that they did the Art With A Heart fundraiser.

“It’s something that everybody in the community can contribute to and I just think it’s a great event, everybody can come out of all ages,” said Marketing Coordinator for Alabama Credit Union Jasmine Wells. “It’s not segmented to certain ages and stuff, so I think it’s a great event for the whole community.”
