South Riding, VA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Saturday, August 24th is the second annual Let’s Help Kids Art Auction for Happiness, held at the Greater Reston Arts Center in Reston, Virginia. This local art event is being held to raise money for disadvantaged elementary-aged school children living in Northern Virginia. The popular children’s charity hosts fun and family friendly events throughout the year with proceeds used to purchase the non-essential needs of childhood such as music lessons, birthday presents, sports equipment, and bikes.
This year’s art auction and reception is open to the public and all are invited to view and bid on works of art by artists from across the country who have donated original works in support of Let’s Help Kids.
Let’s Help Kids was started by 6-year-old Rachel Harris and her mother Jen Sterling as a way to bring happiness to children who often do without everyday items that other children take for granted. “The art show and auction at Greater Reston Arts Center is a perfect event for us," says Jen Sterling. “Art brings joy to people and we want to bring joy to kids. This year’s donations are truly exceptional and anyone bidding will take home a great reminder of our on-going work in the community.”

In addition to Greater Reston Arts Center’s generous donation of space and expertise, several area companies are helping to sponsor the event.
“We are grateful to these companies for their support of our mission,” says Sterling. “Time and again we see how generous people are in Northern Virginia with their time, talent, and wallets. Community support makes the biggest difference for us and how much we are able to do for children.”
