"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow fast in movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
So it's been a hot minute since Bulfinch hosted and event, and this past month we had TWO to kick off our summer real estate season. Outside of real estate, I don't think there's anything we like more at Bulfinch than an excuse to throw a good party. Just call us Jay Gatsby, old sport.
As the snow melts and the cherry blossoms begin to bloom, hibernating Bostonians begin to gear up for our dear commonwealth's own "Winter Has Ended" holiday, officially known as Patriot's Day. However, if you happen to reside anywhere near a certain famous 26.2 mile strip running from Hopkinton to Boston, you only know it as Marathon Monday. What do you get when the summer season kick off coincides with our city's most pride-filled day? An epic marathon party at our office complete with Sam Adams 26.2 beer, Gatorade margaritas, and running bib raffle tickets.
This year, we decided to dedicate our efforts to our friend Christina Medina, who ran this year's marathon for Team Brookline. We chose Christina because, in addition to being a close friend to our office, she truly exemplifies our company's core values. Strong, hardworking, determined individuals who make the rest of us want to push ourselves harder, and make us believe that we are capable of more than we realize, deserve our thanks. So thank you Christina for being that person in our lives.
And thank you, as always, to EVERYONE who comes out to spend their evenings with us! The dance parties would be a lot less fun without you there.
With our support, Christina raised $8,698 for Team Brookline and we were able to contribute $600 of that. Special shout outs to our donors: Down Under School of Yoga, La Morra, Ace Ticket Brookline, Boston Olive Oil Company and 47 Brand, as well as DJ O for the tunes and Nick Hailer for snapping the pics
