The annual Fine Art Show raises funds to support the Tom Collins Scholarship and RAL’s community outreach program, ArtReach. Each year, a local high school senior committed to being an art major in college receives the Tom Collins Scholarship. Through the ArtReach program, local artists volunteer their time weekly to work with individuals with special needs.
