SCRAP is the nation’s original Creative Reuse Center.
We are celebrating our 40th anniversary this year!

We are thrilled by the response to SCRAP40 – I love that place! SCRAP40: celebrating SCRAP's 40th anniversarythe 40th anniversary GALA celebrating SCRAP’s founders, staff, volunteers, and others who have helped SCRAP be so amazing for so long.

SCRAP40 sold out. Thanks to all of our friends and supporters who helped us celebrate.

We partook of great brews and wines paired with multi-cultural finger food. We created art masks from reused materials and took them home. We met fabulous people, enjoyed scintillating conversation and some surprises that delighted us.

Great entertainment was provided by the renowned Ruth Asawa School of the Arts Jazz Combo.

The Gala took place Thursday, October 20th, at the beautifully restored, historic Bayview Opera House.
