Andy Warhol-Styled chair design of Scotty McCreery part of the Chairs of Hope silent auction

The annual Chairs of Hope silent auction will be held on Thursday, April 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Vandora Springs Elementary. More than 40 hand-painted chairs will be auctioned off in a silent auction format with all proceeds going to benefit Garner’s Relay For Life and The American Cancer Society. The theme for this year’s chairs are famous works of art. Included in these chairs is an Andy Warhol-styled chair design of Garner’s own Scotty McCreery. For more information, go to www.chairsofhope.webs.com.

The Chairs of Hope project is an art-based community outreach project in which students and staff at Vandora Springs Elementary School in Garner, North Carolina paint wooden chairs to raise money for the fight against cancer through our local Relay for Life. Each year, over 30 chairs are hand-painted with a specific theme in mind. Our finished chairs are then auctioned off in a silent auction format in April, with all the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. As of now, the Chairs of Hope project has raised over $10,000 in just three short years.
