Our 4th and final “Chair-ish” Ely Auction/Fundraiser will be held Tuesday August 1st 2017, at the Ely Farmers Market!
20 Adirondack chairs, ottomans, and side tables are being built by Ely’s high school Industrial Arts Class, and we are currently seeking artists and sponsors to decorate them creating one of a kind works of art!
Artists get to paint their chair starting in March and will receive a $25 stipend to help with the costs of painting a chair, $30 if painting a chair and ottoman, or $35 for painting a chair, ottoman, and side table once their pieces are complete.
The completed works of art will be displayed at sponsor locations around the City of Ely. If you’re interested in painting a chair, or being a sponsor, download and print the application by clicking here: Chair-ish Ely 2017 Application
Chair-ish Ely is a fundraiser for Incredible Ely, a non profit (501)C3 Community Organization whose mission is to revitalize Ely’s downtown and support economic growth in the Ely area by connecting people, knowledge, ideas and resources. Proceeds from the auction benefit projects of Incredible Ely.
