Sassy Baggs Blingo
Those looking to enjoy a fun night out while supporting people with disabilities should plan to attend the Sassy Baggs & Beyond “Blingo” fund-raiser. The evening features bingo, with designer handbags. In between the Blingo games, there are drawings for additional prizes. Money raised benefits the WOW Fund, one of The Resource Center funds that is managed by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. This fund supports persons with disabling conditions in fulfilling their wishes and dreams to enjoy recreational and travel experiences based on financial need. This fund was created in memory of a TRC employee who died in 2010. Click here to visit the Sassy Baggs Blingo page.
Shake, Rumble & Roll
Shake, Rumble & Roll begins at The Resource Center at 200 Dunham Avenue. Supporting is as easy as riding a bike. This event has been created in a strong effort to support the services and programs for people who have suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, and all of the behaviors and challenges associated with those situations.

TRC Golf Classic

Lip Sync Battle
Our most flamboyantly fabulous fund-raiser is the annual Lip Sync Battle. Contestants – many wearing glamorous attire – battle it out to see who will be crowned the Lip Sync Champion. Money raised through the Lip Sync Battle benefits the Mark Pacheco WOW (Working on Wonders) Fund, one of The Resource Center funds managed by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The WOW Fund was established to memorialize Mark’s life and his many contributions to TRC and to the community at large. Mark was a TRC employee who died in 2010. The WOW Fund’s purpose is to make wishes and dreams come true for people with disabilities by providing funds to enable them to enjoy events or experiences they couldn’t otherwise.
