Five years after The Oprah Winfrey Show left the air following 25 years of huge popularity, the talk show is being commemorated with an auction that will allow viewers to own their very own piece of the iconic program.
Beginning Thursday, May 5, at 3pm ET, a select number of studio audience chairs from the series will be available for a “chair-ity” auction (get it?), with net proceeds going to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, which supports the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy For Girls in South Africa graduates as they continue their education.
According to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, a commemorative plaque (see picture above) adorns the flooring of each of the 246 lots up for auction. They are largely single-seat chairs, but several two- and three-seat configurations are also available. The official audience chairs can be previewed online at oprah.screenbid.com. Bidding will begin to close Thursday, May 12, at 6pm ET.
