"Stepping Out for Second Chances" Crushed It! (Event Video + Pics)

The "Stepping Out for Second Chances" event occurred last night at 109 Newbury Street in Boston's Back Bay. Event sponsors, Cole Haan Boston, and Unit Realty Group joined together to bring awareness to Second Chances, Inc., a local Boston area nonprofit providing free clothing to homeless and lower income people since 2005.

All guests making a minimum $100 purchase and giving a donation to Second Chances were eligible to enter a drawing to win 1 of twenty, Cole Haan VIP discount cards. The winners will be announced shortly. In a second Unit Realty Group drawing, JoAnne Borselli of South Boston won a pair of "Unit orange" colored Cole Haan summer shoes.


We at Unit Realty Group wish to thank everyone for attending last night and for their generous donations. Further we wish to thank our event partners for making "Stepping Out ..." such a smashing success.
