MHYP Annual Holiday Party & Boot Drive!
Join us for the Annual MHYP December Holiday Party and Boot Drive! This year we will be meeting up at Milie High Spirits Distillery in the heart of the Ballpark neighborhood. Mestizo's food truck will be the food sponsor for the event and of course, there will be great drinks from Milie High Spirits.
Every year, we pair with Place Bridge Academy to collect boots for their students as we approach winter! Please bring new or gently used childrens winter boots to dontate and you will get an extra drink ticket. We love supporting this local school and our contributions make a big difference in the lives of their students! We also collect socks and hats as well so that the children are well prepared for the cold Colorado winter. Bring what you can, anything helps!
