Yes, they canned.
Engineers, architects and builders recently engaged in “Canstruction” — a friendly competition to see who could build the most impressive structures out of canned food. The sculptures were displayed in Milwaukee’s City Hall during the festival of Hanukkah and judged by Mayor Tom Barrett and 15th Ward Ald. Russell Stamper. More than 6,000 cans were then donated to the Jewish Community Pantry in Stamper’s ward.
Participating organizations included GRAEF, Hunzinger Construction Company, Plunkett Raysich Architects and Korb and Associates. Mosaic Construction, Berghammer Builders, Inc. Dickenschrauf Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Drexel Building Supply, Henderson Group, Inc., Miron Construction Company, Inc. and Valley Cabinet also sponsored the event.
