Each year, the efforts of our teams are highlighted at ChicagoCAN, our charity cocktail and awards reception. The 2019 event will be held in the South Lobby of the Merchandise Mart on Thursday, October 17 from 5:30-8pm. Awards start at 6pm. All are welcome! Stay tuned for ticket information.

Best Meal The food items used in the structure could create a tasty meal
Best Use of Labels Clever and artistic use of the labels' color and design.
Structural Ingenuity Pushes the limits of gravity and physics to turn a basic can of food into a structure that makes you say, “WOW, how did they do that?”
Most Cans Used The award for the biggest donation to the GCFD
Best Original Design Award for the most creative and well-executed design
