Putnam County Family Support Services is seeking local talent interested in professionally decorating a wooden chair to be auctioned off at its annual event.

The fourth annual Chairish the Children silent auction will be held on Sept. 20 during the Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce Taste of Putnam County. Organizers are excited about this partnership and look forward to the submissions and support.

Getting involved is easy. Simply decorate any wooden chair -- adult or child -- with any theme, to be auctioned off. Chairs must be painted with the donor's choice of theme, color or to represent the donor organization or cause.

Family Support Services would like to see the artistry this community has to offer.

All proceeds from the event will help to sustain the Family Support Services domestic violence and child abuse prevention programming that impacts more than 1,000 community members each year.

All participants will receive recognition for their participation and are encouraged to attend the event.

The deadline for registration is Friday, Aug. 22, and all chairs should be completed by Friday, Sept. 12.

For a registration form or for any

questions, contact Family Support Services at 653-4820 or online at
