Great 'Chair-ity' event to help Children's Village

Great 'Chair-ity' event to help Children's Village

UNION CITY, Ga. -- Who knew that a little hand-painted chair could do so much good?

The Children's Village at Christian City is gearing up for its fifth annual Children's Chair-ity Event, a holiday auction that raises money for the disadvantaged kids who live in the cottages at the Union City-based assisted living home.

Items for auction include chairs crafted and painted by local artists -- hence the name of the event. Children's Village residents also paint chair-shaped Christmas tree ornaments for the auction, and sponsoring businesses offer great prizes and deals to the highest bidders. More than 60 local businesses sponsor the event, including Georgia Power, Nestlé Purina and Global Aviation Holdings.
