Raffles will be available for Bronx goodies - such as tickets to the Lehman Performing Arts Center, membership to the NY Botanical Gardens and access to Bronx River Kayaking!

We have much to celebrate this year and hope that you will join us to raise a glass – our specially imprinted UNHP beer glass – to our many recent accomplishments. UNHP has aided in the improvement of tens of thousands of rental units in New York City through the use of the Building Indicator Project (BIP). With our partner, Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation, UNHP will go to permanent closing on West Farms Square, a transformed 8 building, 526 unit affordable housing project. 

In addition to our housing work, UNHP has assisted over 4,000 Bronx residents through the Northwest Bronx Resource Center with a variety of financial education services, including a free tax preparation program which has helped keep over $7.5 million in Bronx pockets.


Tickets are available at $50 for the corporate rate and $30 for individuals and non-profits.  You can buy tickets on our donate page for a small surcharge, by mailing a check or emailing your reservation with this form and paying at the door by cash, check or credit card.
