“With any event there’s so much planning and leading up to it, it gets more rampant. As you saw being here early, it can be pretty chaotic [laughs], but once you get to see it come to life like this and see how happy people are being coming up to you and being so thankful for what we’ve done for this program is one of the most rewarding parts!”

Danielle Henry
Account Executive of Event Sales, MLSE

It’s amazing just to see everyone come together and it’s awesome to see the support we have. Our first event had about 30 people and today we have over 300 people out here celebrating and having a great time celebrating the first year of GroundbreakHERs.
