BOLTON LANDING - Over this summer, residents and visitors have seen a signature Adirondack furnishing in a new light, as 25 fancifully painted Adirondack chairs have been on display throughout town.
Saturday, Aug. 22, they will be auctioned off in a fundraiser and gala from 4 to 8 p.m., at Sweet Pea Farm Perennials & Art Gallery, 121 Federal Hill Road in Bolton. Many of the artists are scheduled to be on hand to meet the public. Entertainment will be featured at the event, which also includes a secondary silent auction from 4-5:30 p.m.
The proceeds will go to the Christine Nicole Perry Trust, a foundation run by Christine's parents, Mark and Linda Perry, owners of Sweet Pea Farm. Christine died several years ago at a young age in an out-of state automobile crash.
Since then the foundation has awarded money to various community service causes and scholarships at Bolton Central. Proceeds of this auction of "Chrissy's Chairs" will go to High Peaks Hospice.
Sweet Pea Farm can be found by following Horicon Avenue out of Bolton Landing, which leads into Federal Hill Road. Signs should provide sufficient direction.
