Pine Street Inn’s Innbassadors Raise $20,000!


At their third annual “Summer Inn the City” event, the Innbassadors raised close to $20,000 to help end homelessness.


Hosted by Ink Block and attended by over 250 people who sampled food and drink from partners, it was a great evening of South End community partnership. Attendees listened to the music of DJ OpynMynd as they socialized.

Pine Street Inn’s President Lyndia Downie spoke to the crowd, saying, “I look out and see the next generation of leaders in the fight 

to end homelessness. We started it, but everyone here, you are going to finish it.”


Corporate sponsors of Summer Inn the City include: Natixis Global Asset Management, Atwater Wealth ManagementBraemar Energy VenturesDeloittedunnhumby and Putnam Investments.
