Terry Barber warmly thanked everyone for attending and their support of the budding organization. Terry noted that , “Right now, Artists for a Cause is a local organization with a large effect in the Treasure Coast, but our plans are to grow nationally. We provide professional artists with a way to use their art to make a difference while receiving compensation and recognition.”
