A Financial Education Event

McConnell AFB Heroes at Home Event

We are heading out to Ellsworth AFB for our third Heroes at Home Event, but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the amazing time we had at McConnell AFB. Between two events, we had close to 600 people in the audience. About 90% of them were in uniform. We had a great time talking about financial education.

One of our favorite parts of the Event is our live Twitter party. Our emcee, Bethany Grace, asks for the audience to tweet along to share tips, advice, and what they think about the information they are receiving. At the end of our time together, she gives away a prize.

During both events, we received hundreds of tweets. If you want a full list, visit #HaHEvents. Here are a few of our favorite photos from the event, as well as the winners of the prizes!
