TRIPIL Capital Campaign Golf Outing 2016
On Monday, September 19, 2016, the first TRIPIL Capital Campaign Golf Outing brought together over a hundred donors (and some, in their wisdom, brought their clubs) to the Lone Pine Country Club , to play 18 holes of golf.

It was a warm, partly cloudy day, and the participants arrived for an 11 am light lunch, with a shotgun start at noon. Tee and green signs throughout the course showed the names and/or logos of the event's sponsors. Around 5:30 pm, the golfers assembled for dinner, which was followed by an awards dinner where various awards for achievements of the day were presented.
The event was an undeniable success, helping us raise money for the renovation of the old YWCA building in Washington, PA, into TRIPIL’s new, modern, and green headquarters. It was also a blast, and everyone said that it would be great to do again next year, and the year after that, and the year after that. . .
TRIPIL advocates for the civil rights of people with disabilities and promotes independent living in our Southwestern PA communities. Many of the consumers that we serve are considered to be very low income per federal guidelines.
In addition to this advocacy, we provide a variety of much-needed services (including skills training, peer support, and information & referral) and programs (on assistive technology, transportation advocacy, health & wellness, and youth transitions from high school to work/college).
Through TRIPIL Services, we offer personal assistance services, nursing home transitions, and training for direct care workers. Every two weeks, during payroll, we pay $450,000 to our direct care workers and staff for our in-house services.
All proceeds from the golf outing will benefit the TRIPIL Capital Campaign for renovation of the former YWCA Building, 42 West Maiden Street, Washington, into TRIPIL’s new accessible headquarters and community center.
Once our renovation of the Y is complete, TRIPIL will be able to serve our entire community – not just our members and consumers, but all of our neighbors. Before any of us know it, we’ll all be enjoying a historic building updated into a modern, accessible community center (available for numerous public events), just blocks from the Washington County Courthouse.
Construction bids for the renovation project are expected to be released next month, and an award by late November 2016. Construction is expected to last ~14 months. TRIPIL is very excited about seeing the dirt fly!
