What is the Benefit?

What is the Trinity Annual Benefit?

A: The Annual Benefit is one of Trinity’s largest fundraising events of the year. It is also a time when we come together as a community for some fun. This year we have reimagined the event with a virtual platform for fun social mingling of small groups and large group interaction during a community presentation. 

This year’s theme is the 1970s – inspired by peace, love and happiness, and our gratitude for the incredible work of our Trinity Faculty and Staff under extrodinary circumstances.
