It Takes a Manor
Mezzapalooza was started in 2012 following the tragic passing of John Mezzatesta. In his honor, the Briarcliff community came together to honor and lend a hand to the family of one of Briarcliff's favorite sons.
In this spirit, we come together as a community each year in support of a local family or charity in order to express our love and support.
The Mezzapalooza event will continue this legacy of giving.
