Bridge to Success’s Bottomline Boutique Now Open in Chicago

The Bottomline Boutique, a unique, upscale resale women’s attire boutique, is now open at 2208 West Chicago Avenue, in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood. The store offers customers high-end fashion apparel and accessories at a fraction of the cost, within a dignified, urban chic environment.

        It’s operated by the Chicago-based nonprofit Bridge to Success, a city-wide program that enhances employment opportunities for at-risk, low-income or no-income men, women and young adults by providing interview resources to build self-confidence through appearance, interview preparation and sense of belonging at the workplace.

        Bridge to Success is holding a fundraiser called Sip for Suits the evening of May 2 at Quartino Ristorante, in Chicago. Attendees can take advantage of terrific silent auction items that area businesses and individuals have donated to support the cause. In addition to networking and enjoying top-of-the-line wine with savory nibbles, a special treat will be meeting owner Jon Coletta, Chicago’s first celebrity chef. All proceeds support the programs of Bridge to Success.

Restaurant location: 626 N. State St., Chicago. For more information, visit
