Whistler's CHAIR-ity Project
Every weekend over the 2020 summer, Sea to Sky artists painted Adirondack chairs for charity in different parks throughout Whistler. New chairs were up for auction every week, 31 chairs in total! All chairs have now been auctioned off, and the CHAIR-ity Project has wrapped for 2020.
A huge thank you to everyone who participated: the artists, the auction bidders, and those who helped spread the word.
With your support we raised over $15,000 for the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation, to support registered Sea to Sky Charities.
