The winning artist and two representatives of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware will fly to Los Angeles to showcase the winning chair on the Ellen DeGeneres Show later this year.  Two additional tickets to the Ellen show, airfare and hotel will be awarded randomly to one lucky voter who voted for their favorite chair.


Time is running out!  This is the final week of voting for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware’s Wacky Chair Contest.

Sponsored by the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Delaware State Fair, WMDT-TV, Tyndall’s Casual Furniture, and the Biggs Museum of American Art, the Wacky Chair Contest allowed kids from ten Boys & Girls Clubs across the state to work with professional artists to design Wacky Chairs.  The Adirondack chairs, donated by Tyndall’s, were displayed at the Delaware State Fair and have since been exhibited at the Biggs Museum.

Members of the community are encouraged to vote for their favorite chair at www.bgclubs.org.  The first vote is free, and each subsequent vote costs $1, with all proceeds going directly to the Boys & Girls Clubs and the Biggs Museum.
