LAUGHLIN, NV – May 28, 2014 – Bullhead City Junior High School students, along with Aquarius Casino Resort team members and many others from the tri-state community displayed their best canned food art sculptures for the annual Foodstruction competition on Saturday, May 10, to benefit the Colorado River Food Bank in Laughlin, Nevada.
Aquarius Casino Resort team members built a slot-machine sculpture made out of canned foods including chili, beans, and soup along with Oreo, cereal and Bisquick boxes. Their slot-machine sculpture was named “Most Unique” during the competition.
“This event is always fun to participate in, from coming up with a design, to figuring out how to build it, to seeing the end result,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond. “But the best part of Foodstruction is that we are able to help those less fortunate in our community.”
Thirteen teams, including Team Aquarius, participated in this year’s Foodstruction competition by creating various figures out of non-perishable food items. Every item used in the sculptures was donated to the Colorado River Food Bank.
In addition to an abundance of non-perishable foods, the annual Foodstruction competition raises monetary donations to benefit the Colorado River Food Bank. This event is important to the community because local food pantries often start to run low in the spring and summer months.
Aquarius team members raised a total of $740 in canned foods and cash for this year’s Foodstruction event that benefits the Colorado River Food Bank.
