We celebrate the food, drinks and culture of the three countries that the hosts represent. This year, we will travel to Spain, Italy and Morocco!

The event starts on Saturday, May 10. Passports are SOLD OUT, we are also selling raffle tickets for $20 during Night in the Heights. Enter to win a variety of great products and services including a weekend stay at the Four Seasons Las Colinas, dinners, entertainment packages from the Kessler Theater and Texas Theatre, a Stevens Park golf package, wine and spirit baskets, and more!
