Annual Dinner

We look forward to gathering with you on May 2, 2024 at the West Des Moines Marriott for an evening of great food and drinks, socializing, networking and a keynote presentation by Molly Bloom -- entrepreneur, bestselling author of "Molly’s Game," and subject of the Oscar-nominated film of the same name!

Legendary for running the world’s most exclusive high stakes poker game frequented by A-List Hollywood celebrities and sports figures, Molly is a top-booked inspirational speaker and one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women. She will share her story of triumph, ruin and reinvention—from Olympic dreams crushed by a career-ending accident to seeing her multi-million-dollar business threatened by organized crime and shut down by the FBI. When it comes to resilience, reinvention and resetting mindsets to achieve your vision, Molly’s presentation provides a playbook for success that is as actionable as it is inspiring!
