Toner Real Estate Solutions and Northwest Costume to Host “One Last Costume Party”

Northwest Costume

Toner Real Estate Solutions in partnership with the owners of Northwest Costume will host “One Last Costume Party,” a community event and tour of the building on May 11, 2018 from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

Shortly after the November fire that destroyed the business and damaged the building, the Johnsons engaged Joe Toner of Toner Real Estate Solutions to represent them for the sale of the building.

This event will be an opportunity to “re-open” the building to the community and announce its availability for sale. This “invite only” event will include 6th Ave business owners, the City of Tacoma’s economic department, potential buyers, and other select attendees. The public is welcome to attend if they contact Toner Real Estate Solutions to be added to the guest list.

“We are thrilled to help our longtime friends with the sale of this landmark building,” said Joe Toner, Designated Broker Principal at Toner Real Estate Solutions. “Northwest Costume and Tom and Mary are truly one of a kind. They are community builders and have a love for the theater. To honor and pay homage to them and the building, we thought it would be a new and exciting idea to plan an extraordinary event to highlight the historical importance of the building and at the same time celebrate Tom and Mary’s long-standing contribution to the community.”

Local Tacoma businesses will support the event which will double as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society (ACS). TREE will stage the event with custom furniture while the Tacoma Weekly and 512 Apparel will provide items for various raffles to benefit the ACS.
