A Chair Affair - Naperville

Bringing Fun & Philanthropy together through Art.

On Thursday, June 13 from 6-9 PM, Bridge Communities presented the sixth edition of A Chair Affair - Naperville, a unique opportunity to appreciate and celebrate beautiful artwork through the transformation of chairs, stools and benches. And new for this year, the artwork expanded beyond seating to include a coffee tables, desks, side tables and more--including pieces made from Naperville's famed Hobson Oak!

Starting late May and for the three weeks prior to the event, the artwork was on display at retail locations in Downtown Naperville, where the community could visit, view and vote for these fun, whimsical, funky and avant-garde pieces of art.

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. Nearly 200 Bridge supporters joined us at this exciting event!

The winner of the People's Choice Award was Stephanie Price and Zachary Mestek's "Friends Gather Here Piano Bar."

Thank you for celebrating art and community with us!
