Letters: Thanks to Housing Initiatives Rent Party Attendees and Supporters

To the Editor:

Housing Initiatives of Princeton held its annual rent party on Saturday, Oct. 22, where over 120 people gathered to enjoy food, drinks and music while raising money to help us provide transitional housing with supportive services for working families who are facing homelessness and to provide emergency rental assistance for those who need a one-time payment for a security deposit or for back rent.

A big Thank you to all of our supporters, attendees and more than 30 sponsors of the event! In addition to the all-volunteer
Housing Initiatives of Princeton board who worked tirelessly to make the event a success, we have a bunch of people to thank: Lydia and Johan Pfeiffer for hosting us in the beautiful Grover Cleveland house; our incredibly talented caterer, Blawenberg Café; Tap Tap Caribbean/American Cuisines for the incredible desserts; Anne Fahey, for the fantastic invitations; Jennifer Cohan for vigorously planning and promoting the event; Pam Hersh for her appealing press release;
Anna Brouwer for staffing the “Giving House” so expertly; our brave bartender, Ben Dixon; Applied Harmony, the awesome jazz band that serenaded us through the night; Paul Jeanes, auctioneer extraordinaire, and Derrick Avila and Abel Onofre for directing all of our attendees to parking. And, last but not least, thank you to Mira DeMartino, Anja Zimmermann and Ralph Neuneier, and the Bent Spoon for their generous donations to our live auction.

Our whole community truly came together…neighbor helping neighbor to keep our community diverse and vibrant!

Carol Golden
Interim Chair,
Housing Initiatives of Princeton
