When we formed the influence group, we pledged to be a positive force for the people and industries we serve with our events, but to also look outside of our own day-to-day. To Give Back…to Pay it Forward. We want for the ripples to be felt not only in our circles, through the relationships built at our events, but also that of people in need through philanthropic support. That’s why a portion of revenues from each of our events will be donated to a single charitable organization every year.

For the past two years, we were fortunate to be able to sponsor an experience for a recipient of the Front Row Foundation (view photos here). Front Row helps individuals and families who are braving critical health challenges “live life in the front row™.” They achieve this by providing recipients a front row experience at their favorite concert, sporting event, theatrical performance or other form of live entertainment. Through the generosity of many, the Front Row Foundation creates life-changing moments that positively affect the mind, body and spirit of each person involved. Learn more about the great work of the Front Row Foundation at: www.frontrowfoundation.org.

In 2017 we plan to expand our giving beyond financial support through volunteer work and integrating charitable team-building functions into our events.
