Chicago real estate brokerage Dream Town Realty has recently partnered with local nonprofit organization Coat Angels to help provide the city's youth with appropriate winter wear, including coats, fleece jackets, gloves and hats. The partnership was announced just two and a half weeks before Coat Angels' annual benefit.
Dream Town founder Yuval Degani and Coat Angels founder Micki LeSueur first met almost 20 years agao, long before either of them had launched the establishments that they now independentley operate. Their paths crossed again almost 15 years later when Degani attended a Coat Angels fundraiser and became intrigued by this nonprofit's mission and grass roots nature.
"He called me in the fall of 2012 and asked how Coat Angels was doing," said LeSueur. "[He] told me Dream Town would like to get involved and the amount of resources and effort he has out into this partnership is simply remarkable. We couldn't ask for a more generous and dedicated partner."
