Chairs for Chair’ity

Join us on October 20th for the 3rd Annual Chairs for Chair’ity to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation® of San Diego.

Southern California’s source for modern design is bringing together designers and local celebrities to create unique, one-of-a-kind chairs to be auctioned off for a great cause. The ending event will feature cocktails, appetizers, the close of the silent auction, as well as a live auction of the most popular chairs. If you’d like a sneak peak at the chairs before the event, stop by Hold It Contemporary Home starting on October 13th to view and bid on the chairs.

All proceeds from this amazing event go directly towards Make-A-Wish Foundation® of San Diego. Last year’s event raised more than 10 thousands dollars and this year, Hold It Contemporary Home hopes to raise even more for the foundation.
