Stop by the Gardens Mall through June 22nd to check out the wonderful CANstruction displays!

Canstruction® is an international charity of the design and construction industry. Architects, designers, builders and other teams in cities across the country compete in a design-build competition to create giant works of sculptural art, made entirely out of canned and packaged foods. The inaugural event in Palm Beach County in 2013 was a great success. Six teams built incredible sculptures and collected more than 23,000 pounds of food to help fight hunger in our community.

We hope to collect even more food in 2014! The Gardens Mall will again host the Palm Beach County Food Bank’s  Canstruction® event from June 9 – 22, 2014. The structures will be judged by a celebrity panel and all canned and non-perishable food items will be donated to the Palm Beach County Food Bank to help fight hunger in the summer months. The Canstruction Cocktail Party and Awards Reception will be held on Thursday, June 12th at The Gardens Mall Grand Court.
