Thank you Kelley and Impact! Events, for all your hard work with the Independence Day Celebration.

We are thrilled to have the fireworks back in the Valley for the fourth of July, along with much more that you brought to this event. It is the second largest event where our community comes together to celebrate; more than 15,000 people gathered at Walla Walla Point Park.

This event attracted many out of town visitors bringing in over $207,500 in hotel lodging that weekend.

We look forward to your organization taking the lead and planning this event again next year."

The Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with Kelley Kennedy of Impact! Events.

I first hired Kelley to help us take our annual fundraising dinner to the next level. She helped us build on our event's strength, gave us the expertise to grow, and helped insure we are stayed true to our organization's culture. Impact Events! has earned the reputation of the “go-to” event planner in Wenatchee.

When the community needed someone to help re-establish the Independence Day Celebration, Kelley was the person our community trusted to get the job done. Impact Events! managed every contract, organized programing on two stages, coordinated all of the vendors, and didn’t even flinch when we told her we wanted the Symphony to play live to our fireworks show! Kelley is a tremendous asset to our organization and our community.
