An art auction today will benefit PRIDE!Kent and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Greater Cleveland.

PRIDE!Kent Secretary Kat Rybski said the profits from the auction will be equally divided between the organizations. The center will allocate the money for the Metro Youth Outreach program, which helps homeless youths in the Cleveland area.

PRIDE!Kent Vice President Max Harrington said the organization expects between 60 and 80 people to attend the auction. The event will also include a 50/50 raffle.

Rybski said the artwork ranges from big paintings to small necklaces. Straight allies, members of the organization and their relatives donated all the pieces that will be auctioned.

The event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight in Room 204 of the Student Center. After the auction, the organization will hold its weekly meeting.
