A group of Oak Park and River Forest High School students will host and art auction next spring to help raise money for the organization they started last year to support global women’s education. A women’s literature class at OPRF are planning their art auction for March at OPRF, 201 N. Scoville. The students are seeking donations from local art galleries and artists, and from the high school. They’re looking to raise money for Students for Equal Education (SEE), which began as a class project; its focus is on supporting women’s education. Their group has since been recognized as an official affiliate of Campaign for Female Education, or CamFed, a global nonprofit organization. The SEE group have been holding various fundraises over the last year, raising nearly $1,700. To learn more visit: www.causes.com/causes/359527
