Best of Boston Home Event Raises Funds and Awareness for BBR's Reuse Center

Leaders from the construction and architecture communities learned about the Reuse Center at BBR and had the opportunity to support the mission of reuse on December 12 at the Best of Boston Home event, presented by Boston Magazine and held at the Boston Design Center.

More than 260 people attended the cocktail-style reception, which honored the 2019 Best of Boston Home winners, including architects, contractors, landscapers, decorators, and more. The Reuse Center at BBR was the event’s charitable beneficiary, so volunteers and staff organized a table where attendees could learn more about the possibility of donating used and surplus building materials. This way, good-quality items such as cabinet sets, appliances, light fixtures, windows, doors, and other building materials can be reused rather than wasted.

Approximately $1,000 was raised through ticket sales and contributions made at the time of ticket purchase. In addition, about $600 was raised through a silent auction that included donated items from the Boston Red Sox, Foxwoods Resort and Casino, Hilary Law Textiles, Institute for Contemporary Art, JP Licks, New England Patriots, and Patagonia. A basket of goodies for a prize drawing was donated by FoodLink.

Best of Boston Home Event Will Benefit BBR’s Reuse Center

Boston Building Resources is the charitable beneficiary of the Best of Boston Home event, set for Wednesday, December 12, at the Boston Design Center. Best of Boston Home award winners, announced November 13, will be officially recognized at a festive cocktail-style reception to include live music, delicious food and drink, a photo booth, and more.

As part of the celebration, Boston Building Resources will raise awareness of our Reuse Center program and raise funds for a major building renovation. Firms that contribute $5,000 or more to the campaign by December 3 will add to their visibility at the event by having a logo on the BBR banner. Sponsorship levels and benefits are listed below.

Event guests can also take part in a silent auction and contribute through a fund-a-need campaign, contributing toward specific items such as a solar panel and an insulation panel.

Those purchasing tickets online can also make a contribution to the Reuse Center at Boston Building Resources at the same time.

“Everyone in the building industry has a story about seeing something beautiful go to waste,” said Matthew St. Onge, BBR executive director. “We are helping to solve that problem, and we’re looking forward to spending a fun evening with many of our partners in the building and remodeling industry on December 12.”
