ABOUT THAT TICKET

We are excited for this year’s Taste of Pikes Peak! This year the event is using a new app, HANDBID, a mobile ticketing and silent auction platform which allows you to bid on our silent auction items from your smartphone. Silent auction items help fund our local high school Pro Start Chapters. ProStart’s industry-driven curriculum provides real-life hospitality and restaurant experience and opportunities that build practical skills and a foundation that will last a lifetime.
