Bench for Sale

For the last several years, the American Red Cross has been having a unique fundraiser. It started with fish, then sailboats and bears, and now benches. These benches have been decorated by local artists and are placed around Northern Michigan before the auction. The auction proceeds will benefit the Red Cross and the work they do here. One of my favorites was a fish that had been painted to look like Monet's "Water Lilies". Every artist does it own design, all that is the same is the base that they have to work with. It will be fun to try and find more of these in the coming weeks before the auction.

Have been seeing them all over town. They really are lovely. Would be nice to see the idea spread to other communities.
