zonechairThe Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council  “Chair-ity” auction is underway. The event is an online auction with themed chairs dressed up and filled with great products valued at $300-500. Bidding runs through July 15 amd begins at $25.

The Green Impact Zone staff has added its own creative flair with a donation of a gliding rocking chair with a “family history” theme. It includes: an authentic African throw from West Africa (very heavy- quality fabric with a dynamic pattern); an assortment of photo albums (including a family history album); picture frames (that could be used to create a family history wall); instructions on conducting family history research and genealogy and a vintage 35 mm camera.

The Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council will also sell $5 raffle tickets for a chance to win the Ivanhoe “full of goodies” chair. The “goodies” chair is a unique chair filled with items provided by several supporting businesses and organizations.

Proceeds from the auction will benefit Ivanhoe’s 2013 Summer Youth Program. For more information on the “Chair-ity”, visit the Ivanhoe website.
