About Us


Making Connections

Connect events are intended to be a source of inspiration and connection. 

We focus on wellness and each event has vendors in the fields of physical, mental, spiritual, and social wellbeing.

The goal is to have everyone leave the event feeling empowered and inspired to do great things for themselves and their community. 


An Event for a Cause

The Connect Events are the fund raisers for the One Common Bond (OCB) non-profit organization. They are a grief support agency based in Fayetteville, NC that provides support nationwide. 

They have a goal to send a grief care treasure box to every Gold Star Family connected to the state of North Carolina free of charge. 

Connect events help with that mission. 

In 2018 they provided: 

¨ 17 Treasure Boxes

¨ 22 Grief Care Packages

¨ 5 Suicide Intervention Training classes (29 trained)

¨ 3 Suicide Prevention Seminars (150+ trained)

¨ 58 Follow-up Care Cards sent on key dates

¨ 14 Custom remembrance bracelets

¨ 80 Custom remembrance dog-tags
