PS ModCom's
Annual Members-only Cocktail Party

Celebrate our 25th anniversary!

Saturday May 25, 2024
5 – 7 pm

New and existing members, let’s clink glasses and celebrate PS ModCom’s 25th Anniversary at one of Vista Las Palmas’ most stunning homes!

Join us for cocktails and bites at our Annual Members-Only Party at this incredible Vista Las Palmas home, by acclaimed Architect Charles Du Bois. 

This ultra modern home, built by the Alexander Construction Company in 1958, showcases his famous A-Frame design, intended to evoke the architecture of Polynesia. The dramatic roofline creates both a double-height entry and living room where a massive and soaring stone fireplace is framed on either side by large panes of glass, creating an architectural tension between the heavy stone and delicate glass which frames views of mountains reminiscent of Bali Hai. 

Buy your tickets now! This party is one of our most anticipated and fun events of the year! Capacity is limited.

When: Saturday May 25, 2024
Time: 5 – 7pm
Tickets: $75 per person
