IKEA’s “Dress Me Up” silent auction, featuring dressers decorated by Lakota art students, raised more than $2,000 for the art programs at both Lakota high schools and Lakota East Freshman School.
The silent auction took place Thursday night. Besides Lakota students, dressers were also decorated by members of the Arts Council of West Chester and Liberty, as well as IKEA employees.
IKEA matched all community bids and hosted the two-hour auction and student reception at its store restaurant.
The dressers were on display on IKEA’s icon wall for three weeks prior to the auction. Participating Lakota student groups include Lakota East’s Art Club, Lakota West’s AP Art class and two art classes at Lakota East Freshman School.
