UNHP Bronx Beer Hall Blast


UNHP Bronx Beer Hall party-goers enjoy Bronx-brewed beer, Italian specialties and each other’s company in the heart of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market.

The UNHP 2014 Bronx Beer Hall fundraiser was a success! The Wednesday, September 10th event was attended by over 160 people and thanks to our sponsors, attendees, contributors and raffle buyers we raised closed to $45,000! All proceeds support our work to create and preserve affordable housing and bring needed resources to the northwest Bronx.

Bronx brewed beer from the Gun Hill Brewery, photo ops in front of our logo studded wall banner, a mix of pub and Italian fare provided by Chef David Greco of Mike’s Deli and raffles prizes donated by a wide range of Bronx institutions were among the highlights of the evening.

Chef David Greco, of Mike’s Deli, catered the event with a mix of pub food and Italian specialties.

The Bronx Beer Hall, owned and managed by two Bronx brothers, Paul and Anthony Ramirez, is located in the center court of the historic Arthur Avenue Retail Market. UNHP event attendees enjoyed the beer, food and good company among the delicious smells and atmosphere of this authentic market created in 1940 as part of Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia’s plan to get pushcarts off NYC streets.

Thank you for your support of our work, highlighted in UNHP’s 2014 Biennial Report.

Thank you to our Beer glass sponsors and to Bronx Design Group for their work to create a unique souvenir pint glass and acknowledgement of our sponsors.
