Here's what people had to say about last
a wonderful night out! I attended with
several friends of mine and it exceeded
our expectations. We only had great
things to say about the event and
everyone loved the speaker, Kelly
"The evening was all about
connecting with friends in a casual and
fun setting while being inspired by the
speaker. It was so exciting to get close
to a well-known author in an intimate
setting while taking something
personally away from the evening. The
event was a neat mix of a fun night out,
being inspired while also giving back to
"I was inspired by Speaking of HOPE.
Kelly Corrigan was inspiring and
humorous! Everyone who attended seemed
engaged in the discussion. It was an
event I will never forget."
"What I really liked about the event was
that it was a great opportunity to get
together and reconnect with friends and
also support a cause that has touched
every one of us in some way. Kelly was
such a great speaker and we all left the
event feeling inspired. I' really
looking forward to this year's event!"
of HOPE is a wonderful gathering full of
laughter, teachable moments and memories
that won't soon be forgotten. Even
better is that you are helping an
amazing cause all at the same time. I
can't wait to share in this event with
friends and family again."
