COSTA MESA, CALIFORNIA – June 19, 2017 – JZMK Partners, Fuscoe Engineering and The New Home Company have joined forces as a CANSTRUCTION team in Orange County’s 10th Annual CANSTRUCTION® charity event, taking place at South Coast Plaza from September 4-24.
CANSTRUCTION® Orange County combines the fun of a design-build competition with an imaginative way to feed hungry people. Local architects, engineers, builders and design firms create structures built entirely out of canned food. The structures go on view to the public during the month of September, and afterwards the cans will be donated to the Orange County Food Bank.
JZMK Partners, Fuscoe Engineering and The New Home Company, aka team #CanCrusaders, will “CANstruct” a 9-foot-tall by 7-foot-wide Lego Batman. To build the structure, the #CanCrusaders need approximately 7,000 cans which could cost as much as $15,000. The team is seeking as many donations as possible. Companies and individuals who donate above $100 will receive special recognition on the Lego Batman display sign. Donors of $1000 or more will have their logo and company name prominently displayed. Even micro-donations from the community make a big difference. To donate directly, visit the online YouCaring page, https://www.youcaring.com/canstructionorangecounty-830159. Special shout outs and thanks for support will be promoted on all social media platforms. All donations are tax deductible and receipts can be provided at the close of the exhibit.
