20 hours ago

Park City's EpicPromise Chairs for Charity event takes place at the Kimball Art Center December 8 – 10. 

What is Chairs for Charity? 

When Park City took down the Motherlode chair lift this summer, they kept a few chairs to help support local nonprofits. Over the last several weeks, 18 Park City nonprofits, including KPCW, have teamed up with local artists to create a work of art out of their chair. All of the chairs will be auctioned off at a private event on December 10. KPCW's artists are Park City-based Bill Kranstover and Malia Denali.
