As this was my first MHEDA event, it blew my expectations out the water! I learned so much from my industry peers throughout the week, and I cannot wait for the next event!

MHEDA Gives Back

Thank you to all MHEDA golfers who purchased a mulligan during Sunday’s golf tournament to support Bordeaux Eagles Youth Football which provides a safe, positive, and competitive experience that successfully develops skills on and off the field.

Because of your generosity, 150 kids will receive a new Young Eagles Dry Fit T shirt! A very special thank you to MHEDA Member Steve Johnson, Nashville Wire, for all of his help with the golf tournament and organizing this very special Give Back opportunity.

On Monday afternoon, attendees had the opportunity to give back by making blankets that were donated to pediatric cancer patients at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and Tri-Star Hospital through MHEDA’s partner With Love Charity. These soft, cozy blankets will keep a child warm, make a room feel cozy and will make a difference in the lives of those who are not feeling their best.

MHEDA and With Love Charity are grateful for the generosity of MHEDA members who gave their time in Nashville and also donated close to $6,000 to this year’s event!

We are so appreciative of your continued support! MHEDA’s mission is to enhance each member’s success through superior programming in the area of benchmarking, networking and education. We hope the convention reflects this mission and proves to be a valuable experience for you each year.

Mark your calendar to join us in San Diego next year!
