Volunteers for Youth invites you to “take a seat” for a good cause at our 4th annual “Chair-ity” Auction on Saturday, February 18, 2017. The event returns to the rustic elegance of Moore Farms Event Barn where furniture masquerading as art will be featured in the live auction. Other features of the Mardi Gras-themed event include a silent auction, Cajun cuisine, cash bar, live music and the opportunity to win big prizes. The evening will begin at 6:30 pm and attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets at $25 each or two for $40. Should tickets still be available at the door, prices will increase by $5 each. Last year our event approached “standing room only” capacity with nearly 300 in attendance so an improved seating arrangement is planned that includes VIP seating for Gold Level sponsors. Call our office at 918-343-2530 or see below for details about the three sponsorship levels available (Gold, Purple, Green).

Some of the items from last year pictured here may give you some ideas!
The 2016 Chair-ity Auction was a huge success thanks to the creative folks who submitted live auction items, those who donated “recycled art”, and everyone who attended. The Mardi Gras themed event featured Cajun food, jazz music, a live auction of creatively re-purposed furniture, a silent auction of recycled “art”, and the chance to “buy in” to the EXTREME musical chairs game for $50 where prizes escalated to a weekend at the Hard Rock! In all, the event put nearly $15,000 back into our youth-serving programs! The “chair” that went for the highest bid ($575) was the hand-painted state bird/state flower chair lovingly created by an RSU art student. The top-grossing live auction item was a signed OSU football ($1200). The top-selling silent auction item ($100) was a framed print.
