Party on the MESA
There’s a reason this event gained national recognition in its first year! This summer social is a way for the HBA to show appreciation for its members, and for prospective members to experience what it’s like to be part of this great association. From Pikes Peak to the city skyline, the stunning views from the patio provide the perfect backdrop for casually connecting with each other over food, drinks and exciting raffle prizes.
