2nd Annual Gingerbread Competition!

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Join us for the 2nd Annual Gingerbread Competition in support of

Make-A-Wish Connecticut!

We are incredibly excited to host this event for its second year in a row. Last year we were absolutely blown away by the creativity and enthusiasm that teams brought to the table and we can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this year!

For those who may be new to the event, we are challenging teams to create incredible Gingerbread Houses! From Monday, December 7th through Sunday, December 13th everyone will be able to view and vote for their favorite creation - the top 3 vote getters win some great prizes along with bragging rights!

The best part of this fun event is that all proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Connecticut, an organization that grants life-changing wishes to local children with critical illnesses.

This year's event will be conducted in a new format. Instead of gathering together, we will be mailing gingerbread kits to each participant's home so that everyone can participate safely and on their own time!

A $100 entry fee will provide an individual or team of any size with all the materials needed to build a complete house. Teams are also encouraged to go beyond the materials provided to make the best creation possible!


How to Enter:

To participate in this festive fundraiser, please RSVP by email at by Friday November 20th, 2020.

In your RSVP please include:

1. A primary contact name, phone number, and e-mail.

2. The number of participants attending, as well as their names, their firm's name (If applicable) and their chosen team name.

4. Please make checks out to Make-A-Wish Connecticut and mail to:

Richard Turlington Architects

55 Church St. Suite 201

New Haven, CT 06510

Teams will have until Sunday Dec. 6th to complete their creations and submit photos and video for voting. Winners will be announced on December 14th!

The three most popular creations will all win prizes including a gift certificate to Trinity Bar and Restaurant for 1st place, a gift basket of chocolates from Melt Chocolatier for 2nd place, and a gift basket of art supplies from Hull's Art Supply + Framing for 3rd place.

The winning creations will also be displayed in the lobby windows of 55 Church St. to help raise further awareness for our cause!


A special thank you to the local New Haven businesses Melt Chocolatier, Hulls Art Supply + Framing, and Trinity Bar & Restaurant for their generous donations in support of this special event.

We can't wait to see what everyone dreams up this year. Thanks so much for joining us in a little holiday fun and for making wishes come true!
