MoversShakersDelaware2014 Top 10On Thursday, November 12th, North DelaWHERE Happening celebrated and honored the Inaugural Top 10 Movers & Shakers of North Delaware at the River Rock Kitchen within the Westin Wilmington Riverfront with acoustic highlights by Marty Mitchell from Cherry Crush Band. These 10 North Delawareans are making insatiable positive impact to our LOCAL communities. To be frank, we have never been more humbled or awed by the company surrounding us than we were on this grand Thursday evening. Each of these Movers & Shakers are passionate about life and North Delaware! They have pushed through boundaries to reach their goals and raised the bar.  The magic and magnitude of having this group together in one room was euphoric. What’s better…there was a ton of hype amongst the group to remain connected and we know that wonderous things are going to come from of these connections. Inspired by each other’s amazing achievements, the theme of the evening was clearly all about community and giving back.
