Chair-ity to benefit non-profits

  • Thursday, August 28, 2014

Chair-ity is a nationwide idea involving artists who donate their talents to create or turn seating objects into unique works of art which are sold to benefit others.

The Seacoast Artists Guild is sponsoring Chair-ity, a fundraising event for which local artists have created works of art for sale with items that can be “sat upon” — a variety of chairs, rocking horses, benches, etc.

Chair-ity is a nationwide idea involving artists who donate their talents to create or turn seating objects into unique works of art which are sold to benefit others. These “chairs with flair” are recycled, or handmade, and vary in scale and style.

Look for the Chair-ity tents at the Seacoast Artists Guild’s Art in Common Festival. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit two area non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations.

Proceeds will benefit Help4Kids (Back Pack Buddies) and the Seacoast Artists Guild’s own Cushman Youth Art Fund.

Help4Kids is a local volunteer-run charity supporting Horry County children in need of many basic necessities. The Guild’s Cushman Youth Art Fund provides scholarships to young artists enabling their participation in Coastal Carolina University’s Summer Visual Arts Academy.
