Habitat for Humanity’s CHAIR FAIR

Hi all,

Just wanted to pass along a great opportunity to “take a seat” with a great organization and help eliminate poverty housing in Craven County.

On April 10, Habitat for Humanity will host “Chair Fair” at their ReStore at 930 Pollock Street in New Bern. The day will be full of fun filled events, centered around a live and silent auction for chairs. Donated by a local New Bern couple, the unfinished chairs have been designed and painted by local artists. Here is a link to a news article about a local High School Art Class, that took many chairs as a class project.


Check out variety of chairs that will be up for auction on Habitat’s website www.newbernhabitat.org.   Starting on March 8, many of the chairs will be on display at local merchants. While on display, you many make a sealed bid for that chair. Then, on April 10, at 1:00, a live auction will take place.  As well, local churches have donated “pigs for pullin'” so buy or take out your lunch for $6.

The day will be fun filled and more details will be forthcoming.
