FRIDAY FUNNY: 2009 Chicago CANstruction Winners

Posted on:

The 3rd annual Chicago CANstruction® Competition successfully raised over 70,000 pounds of food for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. In addition, the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) donated $2,500 to the organization, both of which will help make significant strides towards feeding hungry people across Chicago. The gala event on June 11 was attended by over 200 guests. CANstruction® is a design and build competition that benefits local food banks across the nation. It allows local architects, engineers, and construction companies to create incredible structures using canned goods, while using their design skills to fight hunger. All of the canned goods used in the structures are donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
