ALL RAFFLE PROCEEDS BENEFIT Alexi Devilliers and the work he does at the Justa Center, feeding homeless senior citizens in downtown Phoenix. Alexi is a local tin-can robot artist who funds his work by creating and selling these robots from the empty food cans he’s used to prepare a hot meal every Saturday morning for this forgotten part of our community. You can meet Alexi at our store on the 12th and have the chance to adopt your very own robot. We hear he’s working on some stargazing themed bots!
