Local artists, sponsors, hosts, community leaders, and volunteers, came together on December 3, 2015, for the “Chair-ity” Event benefitting The Children’s Village at Christian City. This special event is named for the unique chairs – decorated and donated by community artists – that are included in the event’s silent auction. More than $120,000 was raised to support the ongoing needs of the abandoned, abused, and neglected children who now live safely at The Children’s Village at Christian City.
The 9th annual Chair-ity event at The Dolce/Aberdeen Woods in Peachtree City featured hors d’oeuvres and refreshments, live jazz by the Rick Massengale Trio, and holiday shopping via a silent auction. The event also included a raffle drawing for a new SUV provided by Lexus of South Atlanta. Southside Rotary Clubs came together to raise money for The Children’s Village by raffling a Lexus NX 200t. The winner of the raffle was Wanda D. Shaw of Griffin, Georgia. Visit the rotarycares4kids.org website to see the drawing video clip.
