CNE Hosts Homebuyer Sip And Learn At The Edney; Celebrates NeighborWorks Week

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise will be hosting its Homebuyer Sip and Learn event on Monday, June 3 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Floor Five of The Edney Innovation Center. 

The Homebuyer Sip and Learn offers free beer and wine in a relaxed atmosphere where attendees may ask questions about homeownership and walk away with a plan for how to start the homeownership process themselves. Handouts and information on CNE programs will be made available. Financial coaches and loan officers will be in attendance to advise.

This event is hosted in celebration of NeighborWorks Week 2019, which takes place June 1 through 8. CNE is part of the national NeighborWorks network, an affiliation of more than 240 nonprofit organizations around the country "working to create housing opportunities and improve their communities." These network organizations will also be holding events the first week of June and mobilizing tens of thousands of residents and government officials to bring about change and awareness under the banner of “Building Strong Communities Together Every Day.”

Chelsea Smith, CNE’s special projects and communications manager, states, “Our Homebuyer Sip and Learn is an excellent way to celebrate NeighborWorks Week 2019. Our event goal is to inform and empower Chattanoogans on the cusp of homeownership to actually take the leap. We want those folks to know what it takes to be a homeowner, and that CNE can help them every step of the way.”

For more information about the event and to RSVP, visit CNE’s Facebook page (@cneinc) or call 423-756-6234. The Edney is located at 1100 Market Street in downtown Chattanooga.

Sadly, this morning's Roy Exum: "Teachers Bolt At Tyner" is in fact hard news. But unvarnished truth perhaps is best left in "Opinion", as most people would prefer to not see the truth of what is happening to their children.
