The Rhinelander Area Food Pantry announced the winners of the recently completed CANtastic 2015 event. The theme for this years event was Historic Buildings.
Judge’s Choice trophy was awarded to the Ministry’s Comrads for their structure of St. Basil’s Cathedral.
People’s Choice trophy was awarded to the RHS Building Trades for their structure of the Twin Towers.
Most Cans Used trophy was awarded to the Calvary Cannoneers for using 803 cans to create their structure of The Lincoln Memorial.
Nine teams participated in this year’s event held at the Rouman Cinema. A total of 4,308 cans or boxes of non perishable food items were used to create the structures, plus an additional 711 cans or boxes were used by people voting for their favorites. An anonymous donor agreed to match the value of the donations used for voting, so an additional $711 will be forthcoming to the Food Pantry.
Next year’s theme will be ‘Drive Out Hunger.’
