IT'S TIME for CHAIR AFFAIR+, our festive fundraiser featuring re-created chairs and home furnishings donated by talented local artists. We've got two events happening, and both will be held at Pioneer Place, SW 4th & Yamhill.

Community Warehouse volunteers are busy dressing the windows of Pioneer Place this week in preparation for their major fundraiser, the 2011 CHAIR AFFAIR+. The event venue, generously donated by Pioneer Place management, features street facing windows for excellent viewing of the 100+ works of art up for bid and elegant space for the two parties this year.

Community Warehouse is a 10-year old nonprofit that provides donated furniture and basic household goods to low-income families in Oregon and SW Washington. In 2010, the Warehouse served more than 5800 people.

Now in its fifth year, the CHAIR AFFAIR+ is the agency's biggest fundraiser and a popular spring event. Last year's sold out party raised over $100,000 for the Warehouse. The goal is higher this year since there is greater need in the community.

Chairs+ will be displayed throughout April at Mario's at 833 SW Broadway, and in the Pioneer Place windows on the SW 4th/5th/Yamhill block. All of the artwork can be viewed and purchased online in April at

Our ¬Å“Reserved Seat¬Â dinner party features the first chance to bid on chairs+, a ¬Å“Hot Seat¬Â cocktail, dinner by Simpatica, live auction packages and plenty of fun. A ticket to this event includes Friday night admission.

Our ¬Å“Standing Room Only¬Â party allows you to meet the artists, enjoy a ¬Å“Hot Seat¬Â cocktail, bid on chairs+, have great food and wine, and discover more ways to support the Warehouse.

    I’ve seen the chairs…they are wonderful. I want to go to this, but if I am going to bid on a chair or two, $100 is too rich for my blood. Choose me, I want an art chair for my art room. I’ll take real good care of it.

    It is also a great cause that I would be happy to support.

    Winning these Standing Room Only tix would be inspiration enough to outbid the highest of offers from seated attendees for a Chair to call my own…

    My Boyfriend just graduated with a community development degree from PSU and this would give him a great present and opportunity to network and see that people can get together in creative ways for the common good.

  22. Dazer April 29, 2011 at 10:01 am #

    Nobody, but I mean nobody, likes sitting more than me! And my chairs are all worn out. Me need to buy new ones! Or used ones. I’m not picky.
