What is it?
“RePurpose for a Purpose Design Challenge Gala” is Habitat for Humanity PEI’s premiere fall fundraiser. A live-competition style event, “RePurpose for a Purpose” will have design teams receiving pre-selected packages of furniture and items from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore that they are able to repurpose or refinish any way they would like. Participants are asked to leave their finishing touches for the event, where they will have 90 minutes to complete their pieces live and arrange them for viewing – and just to keep it extra interesting, we will have a ‘Surprise Challenge’ for the designers to complete during the evening!
There will be two winners crowned at the end of the evening; our judging panel will select the winner of our Judges’ Choice Award, while the audience will be able to vote for People’s Choice Award.
At the end of the night, all pieces will be auctioned off to the audience, with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity PEI, to assist with our house building efforts in 2017.
When and where is it?
“RePurpose for a Purpose” will be held at Memorial Hall in the Confederation Centre of the Arts on Saturday, October 22nd 2016.
The event will take place from 7PM until 10PM.
RePurpose for a Purpose: Design Challenge Gala combines the excitement of live competition ( think: Art Battle) with the ever-popular hobby of Do-It-Yourself design and refinishing! This event is for arts and culture lovers, for Do-It-Yourselfers, for ReStore shoppers, homeowners, workshop havers, and project lovers!
Everyone in attendance will be part of the action by voting for their favourite “room” and every item will be available as part of a silent auction!
|There will be light refreshments, musical entertainment from PEI’s very own Ryan Merry, door prizes and an opportunity to learn more about HFHPEI and hear from a partner family!|
We’re positive that anyone who joins us at the event will thoroughly enjoy themselves and will have an absolutely unique and unforgettable evening.
