Donors generously showed their support surpassing VAA’s $12,000 goal for its “‘Kiss’ Hunger Goodbye” 2016 Canstruction build. As a tribute to the late Minnesota artist, Prince, VAA was inspired by the gathering in his honor earlier this year at First Avenue. Totaling 7,755 cans of food, a time-lapse video captures the build taking shape of First Avenue, the popular Minneapolis music venue, with the Prince “Love Symbol #2” on the back wall. The structure earned the “Juror’s Choice” award in this year’s competition. This is the most the firm raised in a single year, achieving this milestone through internal fundraising events and individual and client donations.
We were honored to participate for the ninth consecutive year in Canstruction and provide over 7,300 pounds of food and $6350 to our neighbors in need. Thank you to all who contributed and special thanks to First Avenue for their support.
