Art Auction to Support Auditorium Renovations at Holy Angels

Demarest, NJ: Prospective bidders are reminded to be in good voice when the Angels in the Arts host their benefit Art Auction on Saturday, September 14th. This informal, educational evening will be held at the Academy of the Holy Angels, 315 Hillside Avenue in Demarest, between the hours of 7 and 10 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person and are available to the public at www.holyangels.org/artauction.

Proceeds will benefit renovations to the Academy’s auditorium, which is regularly used by all members of the school community.
The auction, an over-21 event, will feature fine artworks presented by Marlin Arts, a family-owned business that is now celebrating its 50th anniversary. Those who attend will have opportunities to bid on works that represent various genres and price points.

Refreshments will include wine, cheese, coffee, and desserts.

The 7 p.m. preview in the Student Commons will include performances by student musicians, and a chance to speak with the auctioneer. The auction will follow.

AITA is a parent-run association whose members promote the Academy’s many art-related events, including plays, concerts, and art shows. During the annual Arts Appreciation Dinner, AITA recognizes graduating seniors who have been involved in the arts. This organization also presents the Angel Award, a scholarship that honors one graduating senior who has made outstanding contributions to Holy Angels’ arts programs. AITA is also the driving force behind the successful annual Food Truck & Arts Festival.

Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879, the Academy of the Holy Angels is the oldest private girls’ school in Bergen County. While AHA is steeped in Catholic tradition, this prestigious high school serves young women from a broad spectrum of cultural and religious backgrounds. Over time, thousands of women have passed through AHA’s portals. Many go on to study at some of the nation’s best universities, earning high-ranking positions in medicine, government, law, education, public service, business, arts, and athletics. The Academy’s current leaders continue to further the SSND mission to provide each student with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically, by offering a first-rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity, and service to others.
