Area artists and friends of animals come together Saturday for the 13th annual Painted Chair and More Auction, which raises funds to support the Independent Animal Rescue of Durham.
Auction items range from exotic vacations, exciting performances and dining experiences to donated items including jewelry, paintings, pottery and of course, embellished furniture from local artists.
Money raised helps IAR’s foster care and adoption programs, as well as the spay/neuter programs for free-roaming and companion animals in the community.
The silent auction is from 5-7 p.m. with a live auction starting at 7. There will be live music from Dogwood Blossom, plus finger foods and a wine and beer bar.
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. The event takes place at the Levin Jewish Community Center, 1937 W. Cornwallis Road, Durham. Tickets and more info at animalrescue.net.
