Rivershore Foundation Raise the Roof Event Benefits New Hinman Street Apartment Project in Youngstown, NY to Support People with Special Needs

What: Rivershore Foundation Raise the Roof Event

When: Wednesday, September 11, 2019, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Where: The Griffon House, 810 Center Street, in Lewiston, NY

September 3, 2019: The Rivershore Foundation Raise the Roof Event will be held on Wednesday, September 11, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at The Griffon House, 810 Center Street, Lewiston, NY. The event includes gourmet food and drinks, live music, basket raffle and silent auction. 

Proceeds will help build the Hinman Street apartment project in Youngstown, NY, which will support people with special needs to live more independently. There is an overwhelming need for supportive housing for people with developmental disabilities in Niagara County. Thanks to a generous donation of a plot of land, there are the beginnings of the “Hinman Project.” Two connected apartment units have been designed to be fully accessible, allowing for wheelchair access and features to accommodate people with visual impairments. The apartment project will initially be home to four people with developmental disabilities and will serve more people over the years. The Rivershore Foundation needs the funds to make the plan a reality. 

Regular tickets are $50 per person and VIP tickets are $75 per person, which may be purchased online at or at the event.

The Rivershore Foundation is grateful to its supporters, including Event Sponsor Upstate Pharmacy Ltd. and Platinum Sponsors Hodgson Russ LLP and Wegmans.

For more information, contact Melanie Brown at or 716-817-7450.
