The Repurpose Project is excited to announce its …so not wasted fundraiser at First Magnitude Brewery at 1220 SE Vietch St., Gainesville, on July 22, 2017 from 6-10pm. Join us for a fun evening of trash carnival games, waste stream education, a serious and not-so-serious auction starring our very own fast talkin’ auctioneer, live music, the Trash Princess, raffle, silent auction, local beer, pizza and pretzels. Learn about our mission and ways to tread lightly on the planet.
The focus of the event will be our organization and its mission of waste reduction, landfill diversion, and trash education. The purpose of the fundraiser is to help us through a difficult financial time due to extra fire safety requirements and expenses. We are so grateful to the community for supporting our project over the last 5.5 years. As we’ve grown, we’ve seen more and more “stuff” and more and more people come through our doors. Our efforts ARE getting useful material back into the hands of those who can use them instead of them getting smashed and buried in our landfill. We are proud of what we have accomplished as far as waste stream diversion and education with only the financial support of the community (without grants or outside funding). We are in need now for a little extra help. Community support is crucial at this time because the additional expenses we are facing are proving to be more than we can handle.
Entertainment includes: The Repurpose Project’s Fast Talkin’ Auctioneer Extraordinaire (George O’Brien), The Trash Princess (Gainesville’s Eco Warrior), carnival trash games and photo ops.
Optional entry fee – Different donation levels will get you beer tickets, bumper stickers, rp tee shirts, first magnitude pint glass, and/or pick from the treasure box for kids.
The Repurpose Project is a non-profit community based effort to divert useful resources from the landfill, redirect these items to the public for art and education, inspire creativity, and help us all rethink what we throw away. Let’s all help protect the planet and buy USED!
