Harley Ellis Devereaux Participates in Leap’s 31st Annual Sandcastle Contest

On October 11th, the San Francisco and Oakland offices of Harley Ellis Devereaux participated in Leap’s 31st Annual Sandcastle Contest at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Leap is a non-profit organization that provides art education programs in Bay Area elementary schools. The event brings together teams of architects, engineers, builders, and elementary schools to create sand sculptures based on an annual theme, while raising money to support Leap’s programs. Harley Ellis Devereaux partnered together with XL Construction and Dianne Feinstein Elementary School for this year’s event. Prior to the  contest, our team met with students in the classroom to develop ideas for this year’s theme “Food, Glorious Food.” Our team enjoyed a fun filled day at the beach working together to re-create a giant ice cream cone.
