Wrecker's Ball Was A Ball - Dressing Construction Chic


What does one expect when the invitation reads

Wrecker's Ball  Dress Code

''Construction Chic?'' 

How can that not be fun?


 Andrea Bedard and I attended last night.

Not only did we meet a lot of very interesting people who, like us, support the wonderful work of Second Chance but we also toured the 200,000 square foot building. We found a few treasures and watched videos of special employees that have been given a second chance. We listened to a great band, enjoyed food and drink and had a really good time. 



Take a look at the video above to see just a small sampling of the evening.



Andrea fit right in with her boots and purse aka a tool belt.

The Second Chance

Wrecker's Ball was a ball!


This is what Second Chance is about. Instead of demolition, this wonderful company deconstructs homes and buildings salvaging the usable items for the warehouse. It is open to the public seven days a week

Everyone everywhere would enjoy a visit. 

Tell them Margaret sent you.
