    of Homes Awards Dinner at The Ranch Bar & Grill. The set-up worked out perfectly, the
    staff was exceptional, friendly and very helpful in accommodating any type of event that
    you may want to have. There were 140 attendees that were managed comfortably and
    we will continue to book these types of events there. The location is convenient, plenty of
