Local residents Anne Emerson and Patty LaRoche talk in the background during the "Chair-ity Auction" Friday evening at the Gordon Parks Museum on the campus of Fort Scott Community College. LaRoche's husband, former professional baseball player Dave LaRoche, and sons Adam and Andy, both professional baseball players from Fort Scott, signed the canvas on the director's chair that was part of the event's live auction. The chair, donated by Belynda Davenport and the Gordon Parks Museum, included a signed baseball mitt donated by J&W Sport Shop, and a signed Washington Nationals hat and photos. Forty-four uniquely designed chairs were part of the live and silent auction. All proceeds will benefit children's programming at the museum. Patty LaRoche served as auctioneer for the live auction. The event was held in conjunction with the observance of Parks' 100th birthday.(Jason E. Silvers/Tribune) [Order this photo]
