Cheny Furniture held its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony with Libertyville Mayor Terry Weppler, along with representatives from Feed My Starving Children, Lambs Farm, Ashley Furniture and The GLMV Chamber of Commerce.

Dianne M. Yaconetti, president and CEO of Lambs Farm; Sarah Pressly, development adviser for Feed My Starving Children; Chris Seneca, vice president of Ashley Furniture; and Ray Mullen, president and CEO of the GLMV Chamber of Commerce, helped Mayor Weppler and store manager Ceil Grayson cut the ribbon.

Cheny Furniture is donating $10,000 worth of new furniture to Lambs Farm in Libertyville, which helps people with developmental disabilities lead fulfilling lives. Proceeds from a raffle held at the event will go to Lambs Farm, as well as Feed My Starving Children, an organization that provides food to starving families all over the world.

The ribbon cutting was preceded by speeches from Mayor Weppler, who welcomed Cheny to the community, and Ceil Grayson, who stated that Cheny is reaching out to the community in order to show they would like to be a part of the community they serve.
