One of our biggest events every year is participating in CANstruction. This year the theme was 'CAN-tegrity' and we decided to build a life size Bob the Builder. This year we won the award for 'Most Complete Meal' with the cans that we used. After the structures are taken down, all of the canned goods are donated to the Atlanta Food Bank. Thanks to our philanthropy chairs Rebecca Pendley and Phil Schaeffing and the rest of the team for all your hard work.

The Annual Castleberry Hill Loft Tour

On Sunday, members of the Young ICA&CA went on the Castleberry Hill Loft Tour. This loft & warehouse district on the South end of downtown is an up & coming area that is home to many local Atlanta artists. The neighborhood also hosts an Art Stroll the second Friday of each month. http://www.castleberryhill.org/artstroll.html

We started with a lunch at No Mas Cantina, the neighborhood Mexican restaurant, then toured around Castleberry Hill. This year's loft tour featured 8 different lofts that really showcased what it is like to live in an urban historical district. http://www.castleberryhill.org/lofttour/
