2019 Chair Affair
This unique event showcases the teamwork and creativity of prominent local artists and designers, who repurpose and reimagine chairs from the Philadelphia Furniture Bank. The redesigned chairs are auctioned at the event, which also includes a raffle for your chance at winning gift certificates and experiences.
Tickets can be purchased here.
All funds raised through the Chair Affair benefit the Philadelphia Furniture Bank.
The Furniture Bank opened in 2014 with the belief that no child should sleep on the floor, no family should be without a dinner table, and everyone should have a place to store clothes and treasured belongings. The Furniture Bank seeks to solve these issues for individuals and families moving out of homelessness and other marginalized populations.
Pathways partners with more than 40 local social service agencies to provide furniture to individuals and families for a small fee. Each participant schedules a time to visit the Furniture Bank and works with a personal shopper to pick out their pieces. Delivery service is available to those who do not have other means of transportation, though many partner agencies provide transportation for their participants.
