CHAIR AFFAIR ARTISTS
Every spring, Community Warehouse hosts its annual Chair Affair event to raise critical mission funds.
At the heart of the event are brilliant, one-of-a-kind children’s chairs created by local artists. These chairs are displayed and sponsored by supporters of the main event– Chair Affair, then they are selected by children of families served at Community Warehouse.
Check out some fabulous photos below!

Chair Sponsorship information (click to expand)
Prior to Chair Affair (Community Warehouse’s spring fundraising event), local artists transform castoff chairs into beautiful, creative works of art. Businesses and individuals are invited to sponsor the chairs for $500 each. The chairs are displayed at Chair Affair for guests to view. After the event, the chairs return to our Warehouses, where children visiting the furniture bank with their family can pick their very own chair.
Sponsors who would like to sponsor a particular artist’s chair can request to do so. Otherwise, sponsors will be matched to artist chairs by the development team.

2019 Children’s Chair Gallery
If these photos don’t make you smile, we’re not sure what will 🙂 Check out this wonderful gallery of images that capture children who took a small break (while picking out essential furnishings with their families) to select a very special, handcrafted chair to take home. What a surprise, and a delight!
