With less than a week to go, we are getting pretty antsy to get in there and make this event happen together! Thanks so much for your patience as we’ve been sorting things out behind the scenes on rather a spicy timeline!

As you know, nothing happens at our events without a massive crew of beautiful people volunteering their time, energy, and skills.
