Watch the NEXTies on November 6th. After multiple reschedules we have decided to make a video version of the NEXTies this year. For everyone who purchased a ticket you will have early access to the video and when we are allowed to safely assemble we are throwing a huge party that you will be invited to!
Pull out the pearls and cufflinks and join us for an evening in honor of those in Santa Cruz County who inspire the community.
