Special Events

Since the spring of 2020, The House has been offering our young adult community multiple weekly opportunities to stay connected, make friends, network, learn and laugh together across all virtual platforms.

Before that, our team thrived on creating amazing in-person events! Scroll our Events Archive to view some of these past in-person programs. We hope to be back face-to-face with our community ASAP!

See something you like and want us to offer it again…just let us know!! Everything old can be new again. If it could happen with Bell Bottoms – it could happen with anything!
