About Chair Affair
Chair Affair is Community Warehouse’s annual fundraising event. It provides an opportunity to highlight the work we’re doing in the community and share stories of resilience and hope. All are welcome to join us for a fun evening of storytelling, connection and raising support to help more families transform their houses into homes.
Our next Chair Affair will take place in the Spring of 2023. Please stay tuned for details as we get closer to the event!
We are currently looking for volunteer artists to participate in the Children’s Chair Project for Chair Affair 2023. Please see details below!
The Children’s Chair Project
Prior to Chair Affair, local artists transform castoff chairs into beautiful, creative works of art. Businesses and individuals are invited to sponsor children’s chairs for $500 each.
The chairs are displayed for Chair Affair guests to view and enjoy. After the event, the chairs return to our Warehouses, where children visiting the furniture bank with their family can pick out their very own decorated chair.

Thank you for joining us for Chair Affair 2022!
The theme of Chair Affair 2022 was Warehouse Magic. We believe in the magic of the Warehouse and our community working together to furnish the homes of our neighbors. Thank you to all who joined us in celebration and support of our mission. You made it a truly magical evening to remember. Together, we have enough!
Together, we raised $278, 116

Follow the journey of a table from one family to another. Community Warehouse is all about making the connection in between.
Meet Christina, who visited Community Warehouse as a client and returned years later to donate items that would go on to furnish another family’s home. This is the magic of Community Warehouse.

Megan and her daughters, Ashlie and Paige, share their story of resilience. A story of how they overcame the challenges they faced, and how Community Warehouse helped them to continue on in their new home!
After serving under-furnished neighbors in the tri-county region for 20 years, we take a look back at our history. With the powerful voices of our founder Roz Babener, a local community partner, and our Program Director, find out how we are looking towards the future.
Every gift following our virtual event was matched! Thanks to NW Natural for providing a match of up to $10,000 on any donation given, and thanks to Dale Johannes for sharing this match so compellingly.
Chair Affair is so much fun for me. It really has touched my life in ways I can’t express, but mostly it lends credibility to my struggle to emerge as an artist (art school after 50 ain’t easy). PLUS, it’s all for Community Warehouse and the work that you do is important to our community.”
