  And we are super excited to announce that our speaker this year for our 3rd Annual Foundation4Love Gala will be Julie Anne Kelly, Co-founder of Haymakers for Hope! 

When Leah and I think of a person to speak at our Foundation we try to incorporate the values of SaltyGirl (or Boy)...someone first and foremost Badass, Smart, Sassy---and above all has taken a difficult situation and turned it into something AMAZING!
