Brothers Dressler will be participating in this fundraising event Thursday, October 21st, 2010.
The event will showcase the designs of local artists donating their talents and their time to create an extraordinary work of art with ordinary chairs from the Furniture Bank's warehouse. We have selected an interesting lounge chair from the past that we will splice into a pair of twin chairs by adding new components and mixing them with the existing ones.
In 2009, the Furniture Bank helped over 2,000 families create a furnished home with dignity and this year, they hope to impact 2,400 families. Furniture Bank diverted over 1,100 metric tonnes of solid waste from landfills in 2009.
There are an estimated 10,000 people on any given day here in the GTA who are homeless or living in shelters and without support. Through programs administered by the City of Toronto, many now have access to affordable housing. Furniture Bank has been able to help by supplying these people with furniture and household goods, changing lives by providing the necessary resources to live in a more dignified manner.
Mark your calendars for the silent auction showcasing the designs of 20 artists with five special chairs being auctioned live. All of this will be held at the Steam Whistle Brewery from 6:30 – 9:30 on Thursday, October 21st, 2010.
