Decorate a chair and support classical music in Santa Cruz. The plan is simple: for a $25 donation, you get to decorate a chair that will then be auctioned off at the “Rare Chair Affair” Gala. This is to raise money to support the Santa Cruz County Symphony and the Youth and Family programs that introduce over 4,000 young people to classical music each year. They aren’t too picky on how you decorate it, they only ask that the chair is decorated in good taste and that it isn’t too heavy to move around.
The last day to submit your entry is July 22 and the deadline to decorate and deliver the chair is Aug. 5 at 4 p.m. On Aug. 20 at 4 p.m., the chairs will be displayed at the Museum of Art & History where silent bids will take place. A live auction will also be featured that evening and guests will be able to enjoy hors d’ oeurves and wine.
A “Rare Chair Affair” Gala will be at 4 p.m. on Aug. 20 at the Museum of Art & History, 705 Front St., Santa Cruz. Tickets are $35.
