Aundrea Cline-Thomas reporter for NBC10 News Emcees Inaugural “Chair Affair”

Creative fundraising event to ensure no child sleeps on the floor

 

 

PHILADELPHIA, PA, April 25, 2017 - The Philadelphia Furniture Bank (PFB), a program of Pathways to Housing PA, will gather local artists and interior designers to turn ordinary furniture into extraordinary pieces of art for auction – all in an effort to raise money for families; children, vets & single mothers who need housing.

 

Aundrea is excited to be part of this event and looks forward to making a difference in the community.  She appreciates the diversity of the Greater Philadelphia area, both ethnically and geographically, and being able to cover all different types of people, places, and situations.  Aundrea’s favorite part of being a reporter is interacting with people who make our viewing area so great. “I love meeting new people and telling their stories,” said Aundrea. “I'm always humbled that they trust me with some of their most poignant and life changing moments.”  We know that Aundrea will make a great Emcee for this event hand have a hand in helping raise the much needed funds that PFB seek.

The Philadelphia Chair Affair, an evening of creativity will take place on June 1, 2017 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm at the Moore College of Art.  A ticket to this event will include networking, cocktails, catered food provided by John Serock Catering, auction and raffle.  VIP tickets will also be available which will allow the guests to preview the auction, meet the artists and have photo opportunities with board members and other distinguished guests.
