Travel has to be his favorite part of the career he’s chosen.

Party hats, cocktail glasses and sequin gowns are just a few things
that you can find plenty of in one local lady’s home. Life is always a
party with Addie Graham-Kramer. Literally.
After having planned events and managing public relations for over a decade in the corporate world and non-profit sector, Addie took a leap of faith in October 2013 and launched her own business, The Event Company. Over the last four years, this talented team of dream builders has designed over 175 events in 16 states with over 98,000 guests in attendance. Plus, they’ve worked alongside organizations to raise over $5.95 million through many of
those events. Addie is passionate about encouraging other females to be empowered to follow their dreams, just as she has done. She is one of the organizers of 1 Million Cups and engages in entrepreneurial conversations across the country.
When she’s not building dreams through events, Addie stays busy playing a superhero alongside her little boys, William and Calvin, running, kickboxing and cruising around town her husband in his classic cars. Meet her and Allen on April 6th at the 2018 Celebrity Fundraiser!
