Tempe’s fun event headquarters that raises funds for the Tempe Sister Cities Organization
“Great food…great friends…great cause”
Built in 1888 in what is now the heart of downtown Tempe, the historic Hackett House is headquarters for the Tempe Sister Cities organization and home to events and programs that serve the children of Tempe and the community at large.
All funds raised through Hackett House go to support City of Tempe programs, including the award-winning Tempe Sister Cities Organization, which sponsors student, teacher, professional and practical exchanges with Tempe’s International Sister Cities.
