Gilbert Brown named as Celebrity Judge
Gilbert Brown, Former Green Bay Packer and Super Bowl Champion and founder of the Gilbert Brown Foundation will join Canstruction® Madison 2013 as this year’s celebrity judge! The Gilbert Brown Foundation’s mission is to service youth in an environment that promotes structure and life skills awareness, by introducing team building skills and promoting diversity in the community. Gilbert Brown will also be hosting his 1st ever camp in Middleton – the Gilbert Brown All Star Football Camp June 25-27th at KEVA Sports Center.
Canstruction® Madison is a competition where community members come together to build incredible, highly imaginative structures out of canned goods and packaged food. After the structures are built and the winners are declared, all food used in the structures is donated to the MOM Food Pantry. Teams plan their structures weeks in advance, and then come together on the day of the event to build their displays. Prior to the evening event, the structures are judged by design professionals and community leaders. The final award is decided by the community, who vote for the People’s Choice Award. Trophies are awarded for use of color, creativity and engineering. During the first two years, the event raised nearly 90,000 pounds of food in total.
The community event on May 2 will be great fun for the whole family. Besides viewing and voting for favorite structures, there will be food concessions, children’s activities, and free ice cream is provided by The Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream . The event runs from 5-8pm, with the award ceremony beginning at 7pm.
The event is presented by Northwestern Mutual – The Kosnick Financial Group. The site is sponsored by KEVA Sports Center.
Many thanks to Mayfield Sports and Gilbert Brown’s All Star Football Camp for sponsoring his appearance at the event!
