Chairs for charity at Vandora Springs Elementary

Students in Jim Hunt’s art class at Vandora Springs Elementary School will auction off dozens of chairs on April 18 to raise money for charity.

More than 41 chairs have been painted with the logos and colors of various professional and college sports teams in an annual event dubbed Chairs of Hope. The money will benefit the American Cancer Society, particularly the Relay for Life of Garner.

In the past six years, the event has raised about $16,000, Hunt said.

Students decorated the chairs with logos of teams from the Florida State Seminoles to the Boston Red Sox.
