Students in Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s chapters of
the American Society of Interior Designers and the International Interior
Design Organization will hold a “Chair-ity Design” contest April 15 to benefit several
local nonprofit organizations.
Over the past month, 13 IUP clubs and organizations have
redesigned used chairs to represent their identities and the organizations for
which they are actively fundraising. The groups were required to use something
recycled in the chair’s design.
The decorated chairs will be displayed beginning at 6 p.m.
in the Hadley Union Building Susquehanna Room.
Competing groups are Alpha Gamma Delta, supporting Alpha
Gamma Delta Foundation; Two Amigos; Delta Psi Epsilon Christian Sorority,
supporting Soles4Souls; the National Art Association; the Environmentally
Conscious Organization, supporting the Indiana County Humane Society; Kappa
Sigma, supporting the Military Heroes Campaign; the International Interior
Design Organization, supporting the American Cancer Society; the Men of God
Christian Fraternity; Delta Zeta, supporting The Painted Turtle; Theta Phi
Alpha, supporting Glenmary Home Missioners; the Fashion Association, supporting
the Alice Paul House; and two groups from Family Consumer Sciences Education,
supporting the Boys & Girls Club.
Attendees may purchase tickets at the door to vote for their
favorite chair. The group with the most votes will receive additional funds
toward its chosen charity, but non-winning groups will receive part of the
proceeds for their charities as well.
