Better Housing Coalition’s Gingerbread House Challenge

November 3, 2019 12:00 pm - 5:30 pm

If you’re a fan of festive craft beer, delightful desserts turned into architectural masterpieces and a jolly good time, ‘yule’ love this event!

The third annual Gingerbread House Challenge dares local businesses, nonprofits, student groups, artists, neighbors and mall Santas to form teams and literally display their holiday spirit and creativity by constructing a gingerbread house centered around the 2019 theme, “Holiday Songs”. Thanks to the goodwill of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, this exciting event coincides with the release of their popular Gingerbread Stout (which BeerAdvocate calls “freagin’ Christmas in a bottle.”)

Hosted by BHCyp, the young professionals’ board of the Better Housing Coalition, event attendees will vote on their favorite displays, and an expert judging panel will crown the $1,000 Grand Prize Winner! Houses will be up for auction, and 100% of proceeds will support BHC’s mission of changing lives and transforming communities through high-quality affordable housing.

We will begin accepting applications for competitors on August 1st – only 24 spaces available, so get your team signed up faster than the McCallisters running through O’Hare to catch a flight to Paris. Deadline is Oct. 4th.

VIP event tickets are on sale now!
