Slain Schaffhausen Girls’ Artwork Auctioned Friday
The mother of three girls who were killed by their father was surrounded by the community Thursday in River Falls, Wis., to unveil details of a playground dedicated to the girls.
The Schaffhausen sisters, Amara, Sophie and Cecilia were killed by their father Aaron Schaffhausen more than a year ago in their home.
Unlimited Play, a St. Louis area nonprofit, is helping plan, design and build the more than 7,000-square-foot playground, which will be named the Tri-Angels Playground.
The location has not been decided yet.
Donations have been made for the playground from a lemonade stand that yielded $140 to a 5K run that generated more than $50,000. The state-of-the-art playground will be custom built with universal access. The design is called the "Cadillac."
On Friday, some of the artwork created by the three girls before they died will be auctioned off to raise money for the playground. The auction takes place from 4-8 p.m. at Gallery 120, 120 N. Main St., River Falls, Wis.
