Creative chairs up for auction in Merrill

MERRILL (WAOW) - A silent auction of some creative chairs is raising money for a local cause.

The Merrill Historical Society is teaming up with Merrill Habitat for Humanity to hold the first painted chair auction.

16 chairs painted to perfection are up for grabs. Some of the chairs are decorated with Badgers, comic and flower themes.

Organizers say all the chairs were donated by community members and the artists are from the area.

"Some were painted by high school students, some by adults who are artists, they come from all over the community," said Rick Blake with the historical society.

Anyone interested in bidding on a chair can check them out at the Merrill Historical Society Tuesday through Friday. The final day to bid is Labor Day.

All the proceeds will go to the Merrill Habitat for Humanity.

Organizers hope to raise $1,000.
