“Scoring Big” was a Home Run!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Business & Legal Society event, “Scoring Big: Bringing the Pros to Hampton Roads.” It was a huge success because of a fantastic turnout, the interesting speakers, and the wonderful view of the Tides ballgame from Hits at the Park.


Our MVP Speakers: Ken Young, President of The Norfolk Tides and the Norfolk Admirals, and Jeff Cogen, CEO of the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena

Jacob Levy warms up to throw out the first pitch of the game by joking around with Riptide.
