Stan Verrett, anchor of ESPN’s SportsCenter, and host of the event for the fourth straight year, said, “I have participated in this event every year. The first year I attended as a guest, and the last four years I have had the honor of hosting. With My Own Two Hands Foundation does incredible work, and I am inspired by the sustainable change and enormous impact they make on thousands of lives.”

“We are so grateful for all of our sponsors, Bialetti, Gorjana, HyperIce, Kore1, Big Sky Wellness, and Hula Daddy Coffee. Asian Box and GG’s Bistro donated all of the incredible food, and we had so many amazing local businesses who donated to our hugely successful silent auction,” said Lindsey Pluimer, founder. “The support from all of these companies helps us fulfill our mission of providing the basic life necessities to people in Africa through sustainable solutions.”
