SIPS for Scholarships

Please join us for the Tunxis Foundation’s annual SIPS for Scholarships fundraiser on Friday, April 28, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. at the famed Kinsmen Brewing Company in Milldale, CT.

This year we are heading off campus and partnering with Kinsmen Brewing Company for Pizza, Pints, and live music by Acoustic Thunder! This fun-filled event will be held in Kinsmen’s Clark Hall event center, and the $50 event ticket includes the following: a drink ticket, Sauced wood-fired oven pizza bar, a live band, and a donation to the scholarship fund.  The event will also include a “Drop in the Bucket” drawing. The Tunxis Foundation kindly asks campus departments to consider donating gift baskets similar to those at the holiday party.

The festivities will start at 5:30 p.m. with a “Hoppy Hour,” with live music beginning at 6:30 p.m.; tickets are available here. Please find the event flyer attached (PDF) and share it with your family and friends.  We hope you will join us as we raise funds for Tunxis Student Scholarships and Programs!
