Pali Chair Final Auction

This is your last chance to grab a Pali chair and support a good cause.


We have auctioned off one of three Pali chairs to support four local nonprofits. All profits from these last two chairs will be split evenly between the Summit County Care Clinic, The Summit Foundation, Family Intercultural Resource Center and Summit County Cares Emergency Fund.  In the next month we will have two week long periods to grab the last two and final Pali chairs.  We will also be selling the pali rope during this period. Please read all of the info on this page to understand how this works. And good luck!
