CJ Steel City Big Pour

Why do we have a Big Pour?

12 years of Big Pour fundraisers have created the equivalent to roughly an entire extra year’s worth of revenue to help make so many things possible at CJ that we would not otherwise be able to accomplish, including our deconstruction program and job training programs.

The Steel City Big Pour® is only possible because of generous sponsorships by local organizations.

All proceeds from the sale of Steel City Big Pour tickets and merchandise go to supporting the mission and operation of Construction Junction. The Big Pour is a huge part of raising much needed funds for our organization. Thanks to everyone who supports this event and all it has grown to be over the last 11+ years!
