CANstruction celebrates 20 years

Janice
Events, General News
Last month HBA participated in the 20th anniversary of CANstruction®, an event that benefits the FoodBank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore by collecting much needed canned goods for their pantry while showcasing the talents of the participating firms. Participating firms design a structure using those cans.   Our structure of around 1,600 cans is based on the Cape Henry Lighthouses located on the waterfront of Fort Story in Virginia. Using the lighthouse showed the need to shine a light on the issue of hunger and to provide light to those who do not have food today. It's a worthy cause and a lot of fun to participate in.   We would like to thank this year's participants: Michael Winner and family Kristin Atkins and family Lorin Schwartz Ray Stevens Sebastian Ramos Ashley Burgos Juan Carlos We would also like to thank this year's sponsors: Campostella Builders & Supply Corporation HBA Architecture and Interior Design's "Blue Jeans for Means" Fund
