A Chair Affair - Naperville

Bringing Fun & Philanthropy together through Art.

On Thursday, June 7 from 6-9 PM, Bridge Communities presented the fifth edition of A Chair Affair - Naperville, a unique opportunity to appreciate and celebrate beautiful artwork through the transformation of chairs, stools and benches.

For the three weeks prior to the event, the chairs were on display at retail locations in Downtown Naperville, where the community visited, viewed and voted for these fun, whimsical, funky and avant-garde chairs.

This artwork showcased the creative talent of local artists and was supported by generous sponsors who made this event possible. The evening was hosted at Elements at Water Street, inside the brand new Hotel Indigo, and included delicious food and cocktails, a silent auction, and a high-energy live auction of the top People's Choice chairs. Pictured are Zachary Mestek and Stephanie Price and their 2018 People's Choice Award-winning masterpiece, "Barreling Down Route 66."

All proceeds from the event directly supported homeless families in DuPage County in the Bridge Communities Transitional Housing Program.
