Competitive Nature

For the second year, Aurora, Inc., is bringing some friendly competition to Evansville. Partnering with local corporations and businesses to host the Midwest Gingerbread House Competition on Dec. 1, this unique event raises funds and awareness to support Aurora’s mission to put an end to homelessness. “We believe that our community will be the strongest when every person has a safe, decent, sustainable place to call home,” says Jayme Walters, director of development at Aurora.

The competition consists of approximately 80 teams of professional, amateur, and youth gingerbread house builders who construct their showpieces on site. It’s important to Aurora that the public oversees the construction of the houses in an effort to represent Aurora’s objective: to create a sustainable, hopeful foundation for those in need.

The event is open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a holiday cocktail party to follow at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science starting at 7 p.m. Between themed entertainment, a silent auction perfect for Christmas shopping, and delicious desserts and cocktails, this seasonal competition is sure to get you in the holiday mood. Holiday cocktail party tickets are $50 per person and must be purchased in advance by visiting www.auroraevansville.org, or calling 812-438-3246.
