Last September Lovett Deconstruction hosted the first annual Dropbox Derby. This friendly, festive event featured great food, local cider, and live music. Fourteen teams of reclaimed material enthusiasts received identical batches of salvaged materials and were given 4 hrs to design and build unique pieces. Event attendees were able to bid in a silent auction on pieces as they were being made and the top 3 teams, selected by our panel of judges, were awarded prizes.
All proceeds from this event went to Sisters of the Road: a nonprofit Cafe in Portland’s Old Town neighborhood working to create systemic change that will end poverty and homelessness forever by providing nourishing meals in a safe, dignified space.
We’ll be hosting our 2nd annual Dropbox Derby later this year. Follow us on Facebook to get more information on future events.
