Start your ovens! Gingerbread is here


UPDATE 12/23: THE AUCTION IS NOW CLOSED.  THE EXHIBITION HAS BEEN EXTENDED THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS.  Visit the houses at BSA Space, 290 Congress Street, Boston.  Free & open to the public daily, 10am-5pm (closed Christmas Day).


This sweet fundraiser supports serious work, and generates holiday cheer.

Architecture and design firms, schools, and individuals have submitted(!) entries to the third annual CDRC Gingerbread House Design Competition, Exhibition, + Auction.

Submissions are on view at 290 Congress Street at BSA Space and in Waterfront Square through December 22, 2014 (open seven days, 10am-6pm M-F, 10am-5pm weekends).  During this time, donations can be made online and in person in support of the houses. Donations of ANY size welcome and all donations count; this works like a ‘people’s choice’:  the house that generates the most in total donations will be declared winner. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. The individual who provides the highest donation for each house may decide the post-exhibit fate of that house.   Additional award categories may be recognized.  All proceeds benefit the Community Design Resource Center of Boston.
