As we approach the one year mark of when COVID completely rocked the catering and event industry, join us on Tuesday, March 9th for a panel discussion about the impact this pandemic had on our businesses and livelihood.  Let's welcome our moderator, Courtney Hopper, and our industry friends & panelists, Kevin Dehimer, Jessica Lee, and Jill Santa Lucia as they discuss the hardships, the lessons learned, and how they used this experience to figure out new ways of doing business.

So, let's cheers to surviving this most unprecendented time of our lives and celebrate our future in catering & events!
