The premiere gala and silent auction for designers, famous faces, home and decor captains of industry, and interior design enthusiasts, the Chair Affair brings together the community to raise funds and awareness for Furniture Bank.
In celebration of our 20th anniversary, we’ve set an ambitious event goal to raise enough funds to serve an additional 2,000 families in 2018.
Hosted by HGTV’s Todd Talbot, this year’s event will feature Juno award-winning crooner Matt Dusk. DJ Bianca Lee will have you and 800 fellow Furniture Bank supporters on your feet partying for our cause in the amazing Casalife showroom
The silent auction will feature one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, up-cycled by some of Canada’s top designers, as well as a selection of drool-worthy items and coveted experiences.
Attire: Cocktail – Glamorous and a little flirty
Furniture is silent in its power. We understand the role of food, clothing and shelter in our lives but we take furniture for granted. A house is not a home without furniture and the dignity and warmth it provides.
It’s our 20th anniversary and the need is still great. There are tens of thousands of families having to choose between putting food on the table and having a table at which to eat. A choice, that together, we can ensure they no longer have to make.
"Dads", it has been a while but it's time to get another event under our belt. For
“Dads”, it has been a while but it’s time to get another event under our belt. For those of you who have attended a Dads Who Donate Beer Festival in the past this is going to be more of the same except bigger and better!
The fine folks at Big Rock Brewing have offered to host the night again at their brewery on The Queensway. It’s a short shuttle bus from the hood up to the brewery so we can all imbibe and not worry about driving.
For those who haven’t been here’s the deal:
Each brewery will be serving up samples – just like at your favourite beer festival. What we ask is that you make a $40 donation at the door to make the rounds – no additional tickets or tokens to buy just drink responsibly and enjoy the wares. We donate 100% of all the money raised at the event to a local charity. Last time our group – combined with some moms – donated $2300 to the George Hull Centre and $2300 to the Jean Augustine Centre and previously we have collected over a $2000 for the local Out of the Cold Program and previously $1000 to LAMP – a local health centre. The money we raise goes a long way to help our local charities – please nominate one yourself! Email me at [email protected] with a local charity that you love.
This time around we some of the same great group of neighbourhood dads from the industry showing their wares: Big Rock Brewing (our host again), Beau’s All Natural Brewing, Collective Arts, Steam Whistle Brewing/Von Bugle Brewing, Great Lakes Brewingand the Craft Brand Company. We may get a couple of more breweries on board as well so stay tuned!
Please feel free to share this far and wide. We have the email list that we built from everyone that came last time so we will be blasting that out to those guys. Not everyone is on The Facebook.
