The Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse’s fifth annual fundraiser, Wrecking Ball 2018, will be held from 7 to 11 p.m. on Sept. 22 at the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation, 303 Dodge Ave. It is always a lively and interactive event, with local food and locally crafted beer.  

Live blues music will be provided this year by Matt Skoller, and the games will include Giant Jenga and Hammer-schlagen. One feature of this year’s event is the Designer Challenge inwhich  items created by local designers out of salvaged materials are auctioned off.

The Wrecking Ball proceeds benefit the ongoing work of the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse, 2010 Dempster St., a local organization that combines workforce training, building deconstruction and resale of reusable building materials.

 Information and tickets are available by visiting or calling 847-864-9246.
