After months of anticipation, the 15 chairs for the Associates of Idyllwild Arts Foundation’s Chairs for Charity fundraiser are returning to Idyllwild.   

For one week only, May 21 to 25, the chairs will be on exhibit at Middle Ridge Winery Tasting Gallery before heading to the 50th-anniversary celebration on May 26.

Event tickets to the 50th-anniversary celebration on Saturday, May 26, are available at Middle Ridge, the Town Crier and online. They are $45 each and include dinner, drinks, music, silent auction and live auction of four of the 15 chairs.

The event is at Nelson Dining Hall on the Idyllwild Arts Academy campus starting at 5 p.m. All net proceeds go toward art scholarships for Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program.

You may also purchase raffle tickets for one of the chairs at Middle Ridge. Raffle tickets are five for $20.
