Take a Seat for Chairity- Call for Artists

(Last Updated On: August 1, 2017)

Kernersville, NC – For the third year, the Chairity fundraiser is looking for artists to make or up-cycle old chairs and create “Art Chairs” to be auctioned to benefit Next Step Ministries on September 30, 2017.

“We want to help Next Step Ministries while creating an event that involves the Arts and the whole community. Over the years, we have had the support and donations of an amazing group of artists.” said organizer and Eclection owner, Chris Federico.

Artist sign up is underway and ends August 31st . “Art Chairs” are due September 21st.

From Sept. 23- 29, one week prior to the reception and auction event, the chairs will also be on display in businesses throughout Kernersville. People’s Choice voting will go on throughout that time, encouraging visitors to go from business to business to view the chairs and vote for their favorites.

“Last year we raised over $4,000 through the chairs being auctioned and the ticket proceeds. This year we hope to break that amount!” said Federico.

The Chairity reception and auction event will be held September 30th at Breathe Lounge at Eclection from 6:00 pm to 9:00pm. Tickets are $25 and will include entrance to the event, 1 drink ticket and food. Chairs will be auctioned via live auction throughout the evening.  There will also be a silent auction with items and gift packages from local merchants and establishments.

Chair Artists will receive 2 tickets to the event. To get involved, artists can pick up an application at Eclection or go to the “Take a Seat for Chairity” event page on the Eclection Facebook page.

All proceeds will benefit Next Step Ministries. Corporate and individual sponsorships are available.  Please contact Next Step Ministries directly for more information on sponsorships.

We are also looking for any businesses in the area that would like to display a chair or businesses or individual that would like to donate or help.
