Pledge to be a Table Host

Each Table Host strives to fill a table of 10 people, creating their own guest list and spending an inspirational evening surrounded with friends and family. You can even Co-Host your table with a friend if you like.  It is a great way to guarantee you are sitting with a table full of friends. As a “thank you” for helping to support this event, Table Hosts will be listed our program booklet and night of event signage.
