What a year! Time for a Picnic!


One year ago HeightsNEXT became a 501(c)3 non-profit. We created a Board of Directors, gained supporting members, and held our first fundraiser. These last 12 months have been amazing and we are so thankful for our community! Let's celebrate the community building, awareness, and fun at our member picnic!

If you are a supporting member or just curious about HeightsNEXT please join us. This picnic will rock some amazing iced tea, lemonade, and a full taco bar (Vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free available)! Bring a chair and BYOB if you'd like.

Our first Fundraiser Cheers for Beers, hosted in partnership with Top Valu Liquor, was a tremendous success. Over 200 people enjoyed samples from 30 breweries and 2 food trucks. We raised just under $4,000 for HeightsNEXT. Thank you so much for supporting us in our first fundraising effort!

Save the date for Cheers for Beers 2019 on Friday, May 17!
