Boston's Real Estate Community recently hosted a fundraising event, "Keys to the House," to benefit HomeStart, leading nonprofit dedicated to ending and preventing homelessness. The event was held at a luxury penthouse apartment that is available for rent at the St. George in the South End, 10 St. George Street. The event raised $38,000 for HomeStart and was the 13th year that the Real Estate Community has held this type of event at a high end property for rent or sale in Boston. During the event, guests heard from HomeStart client D'Andrea who told her story about how HomeStart helped her find housing when she became homeless after aging out of the state's foster care system. D'Andrea is now permanently housed in her own apartment and attends college. Chef owner Julio de Haro of Estragon provided Spanish tapas and live jazz music entertained guests. Attendees included HomeStart Pres. and Executive Director Linda Wood-Boyle, HomeStart incoming board chair Chris Powell, other board members and HomeStart advocates who staffed the event.
