A Chair Affair - Hinsdale

Thank you for joining us for the debut of A Chair Affair – Hinsdale on Thursday, October 5!  This fall, A Chair Affair’s cocktail auction & gala was held at the beautifully redesigned Community House in Hinsdale. 

More than 200 supporters of Bridge Communities joined us to enjoy in person all the one-of-a-kind pieces of chair artwork, designed by local artists. The People's Choice Award Winner was Debbie Graham, for her masterpiece, "Music is What Feelings Sound Like."

Twenty lucky winners had the top bids for the live and silent auctions, and tok home their favorite chairs! Guests also enjoyed meeting a recent Bridge graduate, raffles for exciting prizes and experiences, a wine grab and a brand new jewelry pull featuring exclusive pieces from Kendra Scott.

The $50 ticket included an hors d’oeuvres and dessert buffet, plus an open bar. Proceeds of A Chair Affair went directly to support Bridge’s transitional housing program and the 130 homeless families served this year.
