There was a great turnout for the 2014 VenueConnect Legacy Project. This year, participants built bikes for the benefit of Neighborhood House, a local Portland charity. Fourteen bikes were built and two were anonymously donated after the event.
In addition to the great cause and team-building aspect of the project, the most moving moment was when the children came in to receive the bikes.
“Seeing the kids’ faces light up was amazing,” said Brian Stovall, director of facilities for the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. “It was great see the project’s tangible results. It was also great to see participation across the board. There were so many people from different states and in a variety of leadership roles. It truly represented our industry well, and I’d love to see the Legacy Project continue.”
