Chair-ries Jubilee 2018 ‘Designs thru the Decades’

The 20th arts-in-education fundraiser, Chair-ries Jubilee: Designs thru the Decades, will take place Friday, April 13, at 6 p.m. at the Museum Center at 5ive Points.  As in prior years, the benefit depends on the talented and generous artists and business people that make Chair-ries Jubilee a success. “This year’s event will feature a glimpse at life as seen through the eyes of area artists in support of the ‘Designs thru the Decades’ theme,” said Nancy Casson, chairman of the Chair-ries Jubilee Committee. “It gives artists an opportunity to ‘pick’ a furniture piece—anything, anywhere—redo it and donate it to sell at the auction.”
The Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce has provided over $450,000 to local schools and the community since the inception of the Chair-ries Jubilee fundraiser. Last year’s auction, “Go Green in ‘17”, raised over $25,000. These monies provide funding for teachers to receive grants for art programs they wish to bring to their classrooms, and for visiting artists to appear in area schools and arts in our community.
“Studies have proven that investing in arts education will pay significant dividends for students,” stated Casson. “We are grateful that Cleveland and Bradley County residents respond well to this event every year.”
The event will include a silent auction, a social featuring area caterers and a live auction. The committee will release additional details in the coming weeks. Casson added, “Last year several new artists participated, but we are still looking for folks who will submit items for the art auction. If you need ideas to help you create a treasured furniture piece, a book of photos from last year’s auction is displayed at the Chamber.”
