Feb. 8, 2008 -
- For a third year, Drs. Calin and Mihaela Savu will host a benefit art auction Saturday evening, March 1, in support of scholarships for Arkansas State University art students. This year’s black tie-optional event, “Lifeline to Art,” will be held at the Jonesboro Country Club, starting at 7 p.m. The evening will include live and silent auctions, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment provided by the ASU Jazz Band, under the direction of Dr. E.

Featured artwork up for silent and live auction has been donated by ASU students, faculty, and faculty emeriti, and by local artists. Clifford Toney will serve as the event’s auctioneer.
