Annual Chair Donation - Benefiting Habitat for Humanity

Dunwoody United Methodist Holiday Festival Displays
We have some great friends who are very active in a local church, Dunwoody United Methodist, and have leadership roles in the Church's Habitat for Humanity program.   The church has an annual Holiday Festival which includes all sorts of artisans, casserole bake sale (I contributed two), book and treasures from the attic sales and a silent auction.

This is the second year I contributed some of my refurbished chairs to the silent auction.  The church make enough money from this well attended event that they were able to build two houses last year - a wonderful accomplishment.

My daughter and I spent the morning checking out the sales and buying quite a few holiday gifts.  This is a premier event in our neighborhood and a wonderful example of people working together for a common cause.   It was a lot of fun too - and, before leaving, I noted that several of my chairs had bids on them ... so, I am happy to contribute!
