Garden Bench & Chair - Silent Auction - Locations


This year Burlington High School students, under the direction of Shannon Wiswell and the students of Catholic Central, under the direction of Amanda Hoeppner, have created more beautiful works of art for the Burlington Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Garden Bench/Chair Auction. The benches were built by the Burlington ACE Academy under the direction of Mike Prahl at the Burlington High School. Every year the students from each school create these beautiful works of art. The variety of subjects and colors are used for these benches & chairs which will make it hard to choose just one. The Chamber would like to thank all of the students for contributing to this event to help make it a huge success every year.

The proceeds from the auction are used for annual scholarships, community marketing and tourism projects. The benches and chairs are featured at area banks, businesses and grocery stores throughout the community, allowing everyone a chance to bid on the bench or chair of your choice. Check “Facebook” or the Burlington Area Chamber of Commerce website for a listing of the bench locations. Please call 262-763-6044 or visit for more information. Auction ends May 31st.

The benches and chairs will be featured at area businesses March thru May. To bid on the bench of your choice, stop by area businesses hosting a bench or chair.
