 On October 25, 2012 The Passionate Home was excited to host it's second annual CHAIRS FOR CHARITY EVENT benefiting the Langley Christmas Bureau.
 We auctioned off 21 chairs, each reclaimed, restyled and redecorated by a local business or blogger.  The public had a chance to bid via silent auction throughout the day with a live auction at 7pm.
 Each chair was a unique piece of art and we are so very thankful for each and every one who took the time to be a part of this event.

 Everyone enjoyed a little homemade treat thanks to my good friend Susan!
 And for the second year Starbucks from Langley Crossings has also supported our event!
 The Passionate Home team would also like to thank Jim of CAN-AM Auctions!
 It is all about the people, not only the ones who created the chairs but also about the ones who came to bid on them.  So nice to welcome Mayor Jack Froese and his wife Debbie representing Langley Township and a HUGE thanks again to Councillor Jack Armold for getting all the BC Lions on board and for representing Langley City. (lucky me!)
 Kristy and George of 4 the love of wood were HUGE supporters of this event and for that we are truly grateful!
 Langley has an amazing business community and we love Sonya and Brian of Forever Yours Lingerie and Lucy's!  Thank you for being a part of our community and for being the BIG BIDDERS of the evening! (we love you!)
The 2012 Chairs for Charity Event was a huge success for so many reasons.  I would just like to mention a few other bloggers who donated chairs: Condensed Love Home, Robyn's Vintage Nest, Ugly Duckling Transformations, Vintage E, Second Chance Furnishings, Flo Interiors, Sex and the Suburb and Hodge Podge.

Together as a community we raised $2800 for the Langley Christmas Bureau! 
Thank you and we hope to see you all again next year!
