A Chair Affair - Naperville

Bringing Fun & Philanthropy together through Art.

On Thursday, June 7, Bridge Communities will present 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 will be on display at retail locations in Downtown Naperville, where the community will have the opportunity to visit, view and vote for these fun, whimsical, funky and avant-garde chairs.

This artwork will showcase the creative talent of local artists and are supported by generous sponsors who make this event possible. You'll enjoy an exciting evening at Elements at Water Street, inside the brand new Hotel Indigo, and join us in the celebration with 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 2017 People's Choice Award-winning masterpiece, "A Century in the Waiting."

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