Home Sweet Home: A benefit for Hello Neighbor

Join us for our inaugural fundraiser in support of our mentorship program and Pittsburgh's refugee community.

fundraiser ·  Union Project, 801 N Negley Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206


You’re invited to our inaugural fundraiser, Home Sweet Home!


Please join us to celebrate and support our mentees, mentors, and future cohorts at our fundraiser on Saturday, September 28th at the Union Project from 4:00-7:00 pm.

Home Sweet Home will celebrate refugee home chefs along with local restaurants and bakeries, showcasing their sweet treats. Come hungry!

Sweet treats will be provided by refugee women who are a part of Hello Neighbor’s mentorship program. Each woman is being paid a living wage and receiving a portion of proceeds.

There will be baked goods available from: Afghanistan, Bhutan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Myanmar and Syria.

We are also excited to welcome local businesses who have a commitment to making Pittsburgh a welcoming place to live. They will be providing a signature sweet treat of their own! Our list of vendors is being updated and currently includes: Scratch FNB, Cafe Raymond, Enrico’s Biscotti, TRYP Hotel and more!

Over the past two years, Hello Neighbor has grown tremendously thanks to the support of our wonderful community. During this time, we have been able to match 95 families from 13 countries of origin with Pittsburghers. Their time together has totaled over 4,000 mentoring hours and 500 individual activities. We’ve welcomed babies, watched families buy homes, enroll in college classes, get their first job, and their first car. We’re so excited to see all they continue to accomplish!

Ticket Prices:

  • Individual tickets will be $30
  • Family (family of four) tickets will be $65
  • Extra kid tickets will be $10 per child
  • VIP tickets will be $100

Each VIP Ticket includes:

  • Gift box of custom sweets made by refugee home chefs. $0.75 of every dollar sold goes directly the baker herself!
