The Third Annual Chair Affair drew a large crowd on Thursday evening at the Otero Junior College Banquet Room. The art auction is a free event, open to the public, and all proceeds from the auction, silent and oral, go to benefit the programs and services at the Arkansas Valley Pregnancy Center.

Offerings varied from a kid-sized covered wagon to chairs to bookcases to painted mushrooms, almost anything artistic or crafty a person could think of, plus an exhibit of fine art from Trinidad artist Marilyn Leuszler, featured in a room adjoining the auction items. Music for the evening was provided by pianist Loretta Stoddard. Auctioneer was Van Hollis.
