Slain River Falls sisters’ artwork for sale
The mother of three young girls who died at their father’s hand is selling their artwork to raise money for a playground honoring them.
Aaron Schaffhausen killed his daughters, 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie, and 5-year-old Cecilia, last year in the River Falls home the girls shared with their mother, Jessica Schaffhausen.
The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported that more than 100 pieces of the girls’ artwork will be on display at River Falls art gallery on Friday. The pieces will be sold through a silent auction that will begin that day and run through Aug. 21.
The playground is expected to cost $550,000.
