October Mixer with Borderlands Brewing Co. and Playformance

This article was guest written by LFA Intern Jessica Estrada. We had a great turnout for our mixer at Borderland's Brewery!

Borderlands Brewing Co. and Playformance opened their doors to host the October Mixer and it was a great turn out. Sustaining members welcomed new members as stories about their businesses were shared. Our hosts are great examples of thriving local businesses. Borderlands Brewing Co. serves delicious beer that is made with local ingredients inspired by the Tucson community. Our second host, Playformance, focuses on providing young kids a play-based program that promotes and enhances their cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills.
