This year’s event was the most remarkable yet, thanks to the generous support of industry leaders and sponsors (listed below!) who graciously donated their time and resources to ensure the success of the event.

Throughout the three-day event, attendees had the privilege of mingling with the brilliant minds behind the living spaces and chairs on display, all of which were available for purchase supporting the non-profit’s mission. The event also hosted book signings by acclaimed authors Whitney English and Carley Summers, and an engaging floral arranging segment led by Katie Wood and friends. Attendees witnessed the artistry of live painting by Karen Scott and gained insights into upholstery and fabric lampshade craftsmanship with experts like Brittany Bailey and Sandra VanSickle. Moreover, Spoonflower artists, including Danika Herrick and Whitney English, offered exclusive consultations, adding an enriching layer to the event’s offerings.

The tremendous turnout at the CHAIRity event ensures that these numbers will continue to rise, brightening the lives of countless individuals and families well into 2024. The total funds raised during this remarkable event will be announced soon, further underscoring the impact of this community-driven initiative.
