SPARK FX a Success!
Our first event of 2017 took place last Saturday and though the weather was less than cooperative, this year's SPARK FX was a hit!
We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who trudged through the snow to take part in the day. From the speakers and recruiters to the volunteers and the attendees, you all played a part in making the day a huge success.
We are currently in the midst of planning our next event so stay tuned to social media and this newsletter for updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to partake in some of the events being hosted by our community partners!
