Take a Sip for TRIP, the non-profit’s spring fundraiser, is now in its 11th year. The event includes pub fare, raffle prizes, wine/spirit pulls and live entertainment. Guests will be sipping M&Tinis and M&Teas, signature drinks named for our sponsor, M&T Bank. Tickets are $55 presale, $60 at the door with a discounted price of $45 for those 30 or younger.

“We are thrilled to again hold our successful fundraiser SIP for TRIP making our efforts to educate renters about the path to homeownership possible,” says Christine Nealon, President and CEO of TRIP. “Join us so we can continue providing valuable resources and support to individuals and families who dream of owning their own home but may not know where to start. Homeownership is a key component of building strong communities, and we are proud to be a key part of making this dream come true for thousands.”
TRIP & RCHR’s NeighborWorks America ® HomeOwnership Center offers classes to prospective homeowners to help them prepare for their life-changing investment in a home. Financial wellness classes, home maintenance training, foreclosure prevention services and landlord training ensure homeowners are successful over the long term. TRIP (Troy Rehabilitation and Improvement Program, Inc.) was founded in 1968 and the steady commitment of staff, volunteers and the community has transformed neighborhoods. The event is held during NeighborWorks Week, when nearly 250 organizations around the country hold events and programs to highlight the work we do to build strong community.
All attendees will receive a sipping glass, 10 sipping tickets and one raffle ticket for fabulous prizes including gift cards, gift baskets and more.
