Architecture for the Birds and King Street Center

TruexCullins Architecture and Interior Design hosted our annual holiday party. This year’s soiree was a unique fundraiser for King Street Center. We raised over $4,200 by auctioning off bird houses created by the staff. 

The avian homes will be on exhibit in our office at 209 Battery Street in Burlington until December 18, 2012. You may visit our office Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm or just enjoy the show in this online gallery.
