Award | CANstruction People's Choice Winner

Render 5 Small


Bailey Edward truly demonstrated the Chicago “Can-Do” spirit at this year’s CANstruction competition. Not only did we raise $5,074 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository, generating 15,222 meals for those in need, but we also won the People’s Choice award in a landslide victory! The competition was tough, but thanks to our friends, families, and colleagues who casted 432 votes out of a little more than one thousand total cast, we were able to take down the nine other teams, many of whom were much larger than us.

Special thanks to Berglund Construction, EDI, David Kennedy, Susan Tomisch, Laurie Longee, Maria Reece, Kerry Dickson, and all our generous friends, family, and colleagues whose donations ensured we would be eligible to participate in the awards ceremony this year. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Congratulations are also due to all the participants and winners. This year’s virtual format offered new challenges but resulted in some beautiful creations demonstrating the strength and unity Chicagoans have displayed during these unusual times. You can view all the participants here.
