This year we're improving your experience with mobile bidding! That's right, from the comfort of your phone, you'll be able to bid on your favorite upcycled chair or fabulous piece of wall art! Entertainment will include a live DJ and a return of the Lip Sync Battles, as well as a Living Statue, origami artists, award-winning magician Brett Sears (who blew people's minds last year), and jugglers from Cincinnati Circus. And of course, the Designer Challenge, Cincinnati's craziest and craftiest auction.
Last year's Fund the Mission moment raised $4,275. This year, our goal is $5,000! Bring your energy, your creativity, and your party hats, and together we'll create opportunities for our Greater Cincinnati neighbors.
There's still time! Registration is open until April 20, and applications can be found in the Building Value retail store. The ReUse-apalooza! Designer Challenge is our eccentric and earth-centric annual contest where local artists create original and unique masterpieces for the home out of practically anything and everything! Put your design skills to the test creating furniture, art, and home decor out of predominantly salvaged materials.
Teams or individuals, professional or amateurs are all encouraged to participate. All creations are auctioned off at ReUse-apalooza, with funds raised going to support Easterseals workforce development programs that break down barriers to employment and break the cycle of poverty.
There are still plenty of sponsorship opportunities and other ways to get involved with this amazing night. Contact Jackie Sulfridge to learn more!
Special thanks to our ReUse-apalooza Event Chair: Barbara Scull, President, The Alleen Company.

We've been known to have a lot of wild, wacky, zany fun at ReUse-Apalooza! But we're serious about our mission: Sustainability. Sustainable materials, sustainable employment, sustainable communities. Established in 2004, Building Value is a local non-profit building materials reuse center and deconstruction service in Northside that diverts thousands of tons of reusable building materials waste each year. while providing employment and job training to people with workplace disadvantages looking for a fulfilling career in construction or retail.
