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.

Margaret- I love the idea of recycling as much as we can instead of tossing more items onto our dumps.

Kathy Streib Second Chance not only recycles but gives people a second chance. Great organization.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - I just love the video! Now this is what I call breathing new life into something old and making it current! It sounds like you have a good friend in Andrea Bedard too! 

I enjoyed looking at the photos in the video and seeing all the great people who were there. You did a GREAT job in organizing it and I hope it generates a lot of interest for a great cause and inspiration too!

Patricia Feager The Second Chance  Ball was a fun evening but the core of what it stands for is wonderful. Helping others while repurposing so many items. And it was here through AR that I met and became friends with Andrea Bedard who also supports this organization.
