HIP’s Bastille Day Fundraiser at ONE 53

The Rocky Hill restaurant ONE 53 is partnering with Housing Initiatives of Princeton (HIP) on a Bastille Day Bash fundraiser on Friday, July 14.

Patrons at lunch and dinner can buy a $10 glass of Aix Rosé, and $10 will be donated to HIP. This will end when the bottle is empty – and the bottle is an enormous 15 liter Nebuchadnezzar, which equals 20 typical size bottles of wine.

HIP is an all-volunteer interfaith and community-based transitional housing organization. HIP’s members are concerned about homelessness and the un-met need for affordable and low-income housing in Princeton. HIP is a 501(c)(3) transitional housing organization that started assisting families in 2004. Transitional housing is provided for up to 24 months. In addition to housing, HIP provides individualized case management services needed for clients to succeed independently.

Aix Rosé, a gold award winning wine from Provence, is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault, with a salmon pink color that is fragrant and delicate with notes of watermelon, strawberries, and flowers. It is made just an hour northeast of the historic city of Aix-en-Provence. The region is known for making the best rosés in the world.
