In a unique effort to raise funds and awareness for Aurora and its’ mission to end homelessness, the Midwest Gingerbread House Competition and Holiday Showcase was developed in 2011. What better way to bring the community together than a fun-filled, friendly contest consisting of the holiday tradition and wonder of building gingerbread houses. Unlike other competitions, Aurora’s twist on the event is the construction of the showpieces onsite. This is not only a chance for the public to view the incredible techniques and skills
of professionals, amateurs and youth, but the “building” symbolizes what Aurora works to accomplish everyday through its’ services: creating foundations and hope for those individuals
