Bid early, bid often…. Bid here.
This sweet fundraiser supports serious work.
This works like a people’s choice. All bids count; the house that garners the highest total amount of donations will be declared the winner.
Donations of any size welcome. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and directly support CDRC programs. The CDRC is a 501c3 nonprofit.
The donor who makes the highest individual donation on each house gets to choose the post-show fate of that house. (These houses have ended up in living rooms, at office and union holiday parties, and donated to schools or shelters or other neighborhood organizations — it varies. When the time comes, we’ll help with that.)
The auction website has slideshows of each of these amazing, incredible “houses.” Here’s a sneak peak:
Levi+Wong Design Associates
Paul Lukez Architecture
Jones Payne Group
Royal Icing Headache
Finegold Alexander Associates
Dore and Whittier
Steffian Bradley Architects
Klopfer Martin Design Group
The houses are all on view at BSA Space, in the sidewalk-level gallery at 290 Congress Street. Free and open to the public daily: M-F 10am-6pm, S/S 10am-5pm.
The auction and gallery show are open through Monday, December 22 at 8pm. Please join us at a closing reception December 22, 6-8pm where we will announce the winner.
Thank you to the architects and designers! You’ve cooked up a whole lot of deliciousness.
