They are dedicated to breaking the cycle of adversity and empowering children and families to build brighter futures.

  • Bring your toughest, most challenging Salesforce questions to these Salesforce MVP’s and attempt to stump them!
  • Join Moyez as he shares his words of wisdom with his students about what it’s like going from student to working professional to business owner.

Join us at 6:00pm on Saturday for dinner while CCF shares a bit about who they are, the families they help, and why they do what they do.

  • Join Rob O’Brien as she talks about how to land that job you’re after and what hiring managers look for. Also learn valuable tips on soft skills needed to ace that interview.
