Please join us, along with hundreds of school children, their families and our friends from the design and building community, on Saturday, October 20th, 2012 as we take to Ocean Beach for the 29th Annual Leap Sandcastle Contest!

Leap...arts in education was established in response to severe budget cuts in arts programs in California schools. The organization serves over 8,000 youth (primarily elementary school age) in over 40 schools in the Bay Area providing educational programs focused on music, dance, story telling, visual arts and architecture.  Leap's annual Sandcastle Contest has for nearly thirty years raised funds to support these efforts.

This year are delighted to team up again with Mr. Gelfand’s fifth grade class at George Peabody Elementary School, Yu-Strandberg Engineers, Geoffrey DeSousa Interior Design along with our new construction partner, Forde Mazzola Associates. 

We hope you'll support our fundraising efforts and educational arts programs in the public schools by becoming a Team Sponsor for the Leap Sandcastle Contest.  Note: please be sure to designate Butler Armsden in the Team Name field and help us win Top Fundraiser again this year!  Last fall our team took the honor as top fundraiser bringing in $40,000 toward the event’s total of $200,000.
