LILLINGTON — More than 100 pieces of handcrafted wood and metalwork, including lawn furniture, chests, jewelry boxes, grills, yard decorations, and other items, are on the block at the tenth annual Central Carolina Community College Foundation Furniture Auction.
The Auction, a popular event for those looking for quality wood and metal work, takes place Saturday, June 5, in the Multipurpose Room of the Miriello Building on the college’s Harnett County Campus, 1075 E. Cornelius Harnett Blvd. Viewing starts at 11 a.m. and bidding, at 12 p.m. 
Proceeds from the auction help provide scholarships for Harnett County students at the college through an endowed scholarship fund. The proceeds also pay for materials used to produce the auction items, which are made by students in the college’s carpentry and welding classes at Harnett Correctional Institution. 

Creating pieces for the auction not only trains the HCI students in marketable skills but also encourages them to become contributing members of their communities when they are released.

“These individuals will return to their communities,” said Bill Tyson, the college’s provost for Harnett County. “Knowing that what they create is purchased by community members and benefits people connects the inmates to the community in a positive way. That is a good thing.”

For more information on the auction, call the Harnett County Campus, (910) 893-9101. See pictures of the items being auctioned at the college’s web site, www.cccc.edu. Click on the right arrow next to the “Learn More” boxes and then click on the Foundation Furniture Auction box.
