First NEST-Boston Event = Success!

Q): What do you get when you put 75 women, a handful of men, a plethora of unique merchandise, and a variety of classy boxes full of Charles Shaw in one apartment?

A): A lot of empty wine bottles... and our first NEST-Boston event!

With a silent auction, 4-item raffle, donated merchandise, and product made by many of NEST's loan recipients, we ran a very successful trunk show this past Saturday evening in a board member's Charlestown apartment. Thank you to everyone that attended and contributed to our cause - the turn-out was better than we'd anticipated.

NEST-Boston Trunk Show

congratulations!

i'm going to plug a group i love now-

the nature conservancy...if anyone wants to know more about it, let me know- but bottom line-
the average age of membership is 68. yes, 68. if we don't get some young people involved, well, i dont think i have to be 'rudy hux' and explain the ramifications there...
