Chairing the Wealth


By Patricia B. Dwyer

Hold It Contemporary Home is hosting its third annual Chairs for Chair’ity event October 13 to 20, selling stylized seats to benefit the San Diego chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Twenty designers are donating their chair creations, functional or otherwise, for the weeklong silent auction.

“We want everyone to have an opportunity to view the chairs and support this amazing foundation,” says Hold It’s managing partner, Mike McAlister. “Not only will people with the winning bids go home with a piece of functional art, but they will also have a part in making a very special child’s biggest dream come true.”

Proceeds from this year’s Chairs for Chair’ity will help send a 12-year-old girl with cystic fibrosis to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and help support the foundation’s other local initiatives.
