Neicy Nash knows what it’s like to have violence in your life. The Reno 911 star’s brother was killed on his high school campus in 1993. Since then, Neicy has been the spokesperson for Mothers Against Violence in Schools (MAVIS), a nonprofit organization her mother started to raise awareness about violence in schools.

Saturday, Neicy took another stand against violence–this time, of the domestic variety, as the vivacious auctioneer at the Arts for ACT 2008 Fine Art Auction and Gala Fundraiser. ACT, or Abuse Counseling and Treatment Inc., is a nonprofit Fort Meyers organization that helps shelter and heal domestic violence victims in Florida. The event raised $250,000 for ACT.
