CANAPI hosts several events and fundraisers throughout the year. We also advocate for partnering agencies and businesses. Please check back frequently for the latest information.
Tear-Ez Annual Chili Cook-off
Bring your best pot of chili and try your luck! The event features a 50/50 raffle and live entertainment. Come out in support of a local bar and help raise money for CANAPI! We will see you there.

Race at the Raffle 2017
Saturday, April 1st, 5:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Tangier, 532 W Market Street, Akron, Ohio 44303
Race at the Raffle is CANAPI's signature fundraising event. The event features pre-recorded horse races selected at random; participants may purchase or sponsor (and name, for better or worse) horses in several races or simply bet on a predicted victor. A race announcer hilariously narrates races using names chosen by participants. Event tickets correspond to an ongoing reverse raffle. Spice it up further with our 50/50 raffle, sideboard, silent auction and live auction. To the victor go the spoils! Open bar, hors d'oeuvres offered.
Come dressed in your best derby outfit! The best outfit will win 50/50 raffle tickets and a secret prize compliments of CANAPI.
Money raised at Race at the Raffle goes directly to CANAPI programming. Must be present or represented to win 50/50 or reverse raffle.
**Early Bird ticket sales are live! Buy yours before March 24th.
