Princeton Community Housing is celebrating five decades of leadership in providing, managing, and educating about affordable homes in Princeton, helping to create the fabric of opportunity and diversity.
The festive evening supports Princeton Community Housing’s work. The celebration includes a reception, seated dinner, and live music by Buddy Miller and Friends, who are donating their time. Miller is a singer, songwriter, musician, and producer who grew up in Princeton and has won many awards, including a Grammy. He will return to his hometown to join long-time friends and musical collaborators Joe D’Angelo, Steve Hendershott, David Olsen, and Jerry Steele, to support and help celebrate PCH’s five decades of leadership.
“At Home in Our Community: 50 Years and Counting” will take place Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at The Boathouse at Mercer Lake.
Event Sponsors include an anonymous Half-Century Sponsor, Borden Perlman, Merrill Lynch Bank of America Corp., and various PCH Trustees. PCH, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, owns and manages 466 affordable rental homes for families and individuals, including seniors, who engage in and contribute to the wider Princeton community.
