The 2009 "CHARITY CHAIRS" Live/Silent and On-line Auction

When Nicholas Herrera completed and donated the beautiful piece pictured on the left we had no idea how many people would want to be a part of this auction. It is an altered wooden chair given to him by Susan Guevara and ornamented with tin work by Carmen Campos .  It is a testament to his work that it would generate so much good will in the community of El Rito.

The Auction generated about $15,700 for our library and $300 for the Abiquiú Library and Cultural Center.  We are greatful for all those who contibuted items of all kinds!
