An appetite for CANstruction

Last Saturday WATG Honolulu once again competed in the annual CANstruction event and again took home the top prize of Juror’s Favorite! We humbly ask for your support and vote for Slash by donating a can at our structure at Pearlridge center (one can = one vote).

The structure with the most cans will win the “People’s Choice” award (to be announced in a few weeks). All cans will be used to feed the hungry.

Slash Hunger, the theme for the 10th Annual CANstruction Competition was “Rock CAN Roll,” and the WATG integrated services team (architecture, interiors, landscape) built a structure depicting the guitarist Slash from the rock band Guns N Roses using approximately 2,500 cans.

CANstruction has raised over 306,656 pounds of canned food for the Hawaii Foodbank

Since the competition began in Honolulu in 2006, CANstruction has raised over 306,656 pounds of canned food for the Hawaii Foodbank, enough for nearly 250,000 meals.

Many thanks to team captains Noe Pegarido and Jon Guerechit, the CANstruction build team, and our generous sponsors, Hormel, Bays Lung Rose and Holma, and The Chong Group LLC for their generous contributions. And special thanks to Matthew Kubota for helping with the concept, developing the model, and for running the CA (CANstruction Administration).

You’re in the jungle baby…Let’s Rock Can Roll!
