New MCLC Fundraiser
The Moore County Literacy Council is hitting the streets with furniture for sale! Businesses and local charities who are interested in getting their names out on the street are stepping up by the dozens to purchase unfinished rocking chairs at $500 for an adult chair, and $400 for a child-size chair. The next step pairs these businesses with a local artist, who – working in tandem with the chair sponsor – designs and paints a chair that will be displayed throughout the summer at their place of business, or another chosen local venue.
Sponsored by The Pilot, the concept was promoted by MCLC volunteers, who felt that taking a year off of the Spelling Bee might be a good thing! “The Pilot has been wildly supportive of ‘Reading Rocks’,” said MCLC Board Chair Sandy Waterkotte. “They’re always behind anything that benefits our local communities, and they’ve always been champions for literacy.”
At the conclusion of the summer, the chairs will be auctioned at a “Rocking Chair Fest” held at the Fair Barn. Elliotts Catering is a co-sponsor of the event and will cater the evening.
Early in the sales process, the Literacy Council already has commitments for over a dozen chairs, and the staff is getting around Pinehurst, Aberdeen, and Southern Pines seeking interested buyers. “We’re hoping that we can reach out to Carthage and Robbins, as well”, said Kris Dahlberg, currently the Executive Director of MCLC. “We hope to make this a community event throughout the county!”
