What a weekend CRUSH 2017 was! For those of you who don’t know, CRUSH is our annual conference for our viaONEHOPE CEO’s. It is a great chance for all of the home office and CEO’s across the country to come together and meet, network, learn from each other and most importantly, have fun!
This year, the weekend long event was held at the Hotel Irvine in California. On Friday, all of the CEO’s arrived and we had a little networking meet and greet cocktail session and free time to explore around the hotel grounds, which were beautiful.
Saturday was the most packed day, with the itinerary ranging from guest speakers such as Pencils of Promise and John Elway. (!!!) We had great lunch, breakout sessions, time to shop our mini market at the “CRUSH Pad” and most importantly, DANCE! Saturday night’s dinner was stunning- our Art Director, Megan Robinson, designed the most beautiful set for our dinner filled with fresh fruit and farmer’s market flowers. We ended the night dancing to a live music performance by Kalie Shorr. What a night!
The conference ended with a few more keynote speakers and sessions on Sunday. We said our goodbyes and headed back home. We were all sad to leave!
Our CEO’s got a chance to connect on a deeper level at CRUSH. They got a chance to meet each other and really learn about their different backgrounds, which allowed them to cherish the opportunity that all brought them together. It is really a moving experience being a part of something greater than ourselves, and being surrounded by these wonderful cause entrepreneurs at CRUSH really put that into perspective for both the home office and our CEO’s. We will cherish these memories forever!
Hope to see you all there next year!
