Waldner’s recently called on Spectrum Designs for support with our annual Cupcake Wars event, at the Steelcase Worklife Center in NYC. Ten teams of 4-5 designers/architects from throughout the Tri-state area compete by decorating cupcakes to a holiday theme. The team with the most creative and well executed cupcakes wins the title of Cupcake Wars Champions!

With all this sugar-filled fun (and potential for spills and splats), we called on Spectrum Designs to deliver 100+ custom aprons for everyone at the event. The entire process – from the initial call to placing the order, to opening the apron-filled boxes a couple weeks later – went as smoothly as icing on a… cupcake! We were able to keep the competitors (relatively) mess-free, and all the participants got to take home a custom souvenir apron, courtesy of Spectrum Designs!

CANSTRUCTION Long Island is an exciting design build competition where firms from the architectural, engineering and design communities create giant incredible structures that are self-supporting and made entirely out of canned food. Once the structures are built and judged they stay on Exhibit for 2 weeks. At the close of the event and prior to Thanksgiving all the food is donated and then distributed to local food banks.
We support The Interfaith Nutrition Network, Island Harvest Food Bank, Long Island Cares, Inc./The Harry Chapin Food Bank, and The NEST at Nassau Community College. Over the past eleven years, CANSTRUCTION has donated more than 440,000 cans of food!
Waldner’s Business Environments and NELSON & POPE have partnered up this year to create an amazing structure of the Smallfoot Yeti from Warner Bother’s new animation film Smallfoot.
The Exhibit is open to the public now until November 12th 2018 from 8 am – 6 pm everyday located at RXR Plaza, Uniondale, NY.
Bring a can of food to donate and you can vote on your favorite structure!
Thank you for supporting the Waldner’s team in our efforts to feed the hungry on Long Island!
