Let's Tailgate!

With the development of multiple vaccines to aid in the fight against the pandemic and a renewed sense of hope and our hearts full of gratitude, High Hopes is hosting a socially-distanced BIG BARN TAILGATE. This will be a celebration of our vibrant, philanthropic community who’s support makes it possible for High Hopes to provide a place where horses and humans together improve lives.

Don your dancing shoes or cowboy boots and let’s kick up our heels (socially-distanced of course!) to the extensive music repertoire of local sensation Sugar. Enjoy gourmet boxed dinners with dessert, bar service, and VIP packages.

Stay tuned for more info!
