Donate Toys for 20th Annual SUMMERFEST!

The Ashley Lauren Foundation will be holding its 20th Annual Scott Chinery SUMMERFEST for Children with Cancer on July 24, 2016.

This annual event is given to these special children as a “day away.” Inflicted with this insidious disease, they endure many traumas while undergoing treatment and this day-long event of swimming, entertainment, games, rides, activities, food and much more brings tremendous joy to the hearts of these children and their families. Approximately 200+ are in attendance each year and our job is to provide all that we can for them. The reward is to see the smiles on the faces of each child who, for a short time, can forget about their illness and just “be kids.”

We are asking for your assistance with this very important event by doing a Toy Drive for us. One of the aspects (and favorite) of Summerfest, is our “Toy Room.” The children go through the room and choose their favorite new toys to take home with them. Your assistance will go far in providing happiness to some very courageous children and their families. We are seeking new, fun, unwrapped toys (no stuffed animals) for ages 3-18.

“Capturing The Game” Exhibit at “Art From The Heart” Helps Children with Cancer

Portion of sales will benefit The Ashley Lauren Foundation

Exhibit runs August 28, 2015 to September 30, 2015

Artist reception: August 28, 6 to 9pm

Location: The Galleria, 2 Bridge Ave Red Bank NJ 07701

Frame to Please co-owner Megan Prenderville’s Art from the Heart project combines her commitment to supporting local charities with her desire to provide artists with the opportunity for a solo show. Each exhibit runs for a month in Red Bank’s popular Galleria. She takes no commission and asks only that the artists donate a portion of their sales to their favorite charity.

The next exhibit in the series, Capturing the Game, will showcase fine artist Mike Kupka whose work is inspired by music, movies and his love of sports. Kupka’s pieces appear worldwide in galleries and are in the private collections of numerous celebrities and athletes. A Rahway, NJ native, he is a first-place winner of Beckett’s 10th annual Sports Gallery Contest and was named one of U.S. Art Magazine’s “25 Artists You Should Know.”

Kupka’s portrait of Ozzy Osbourne caught the eye of a Disney Company representative that led to an eight-year stint as a licensed artist for the Disney Company. He is currently licensed by Major League Baseball, as well as, the estates of Thurman Munson, Lou Gehrig and Jackie Robinson. Mike has also produced artwork for Lucas Films, King Features, Topps, NFL, NBA and NHL.

Proceeds from the sale of Kupka’s work will benefit The Ashley Lauren Foundation. Founded in 2005, the foundation provides direct financial, material and emotional assistance to New Jersey families dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis along with many programs developed to bring smiles to the children.

“I’ve watched a lot of people close to me go through cancer,” Kupka explained when asked how he selected his charity. “I can’t imagine what these kids have to deal with, at such an early age. Their family and friends as well.”

Kupka studied at duCret School of Art in Plainfield, NJ where he was introduced to the work of his greatest influences: Norman Rockwell, Robert McGinnis, and James Bama by his professor and mentor, Peter Caras. Kupka creates a variety of freelance art by individual commission and under broad creative licenses.
