Behind the Theme: GIVE LIGHT
Team Q2 reveals that the inspiration behind their Cove’s theme, Give Light is…You! They’ve chosen to highlight members of our community who have gone the extra mile in different ways to make a better place. Q2 is proud to be engrained in our community, and they can’t wait to share their appreciation!
Meet the Chef: REVEL Flavor
Husband-and-wife duo Stephen and Stacey Hindman own Stacked, A Montana Grill, a restaurant that offers familiar dishes with an innovative twist. Starting out as a food truck (Stacked in Montana) in 2015, the brick-and-mortar restaurant is now one of the most visited and well-known in Downtown Billings.
Meet the REVEL Artist
Born and raised in Montana, Emily Krieger graduated from KG Highschool. This small-town girl then moved to Billings where she pursued her Business degree at Montana State University-Billings. Shortly thereafter, Emily was hired by Ferguson as a sales trainee. For the past 13 years Emily has worked alongside trade professionals, architects, and designers to help homeowners find inspiration when building or remodeling their home.
Meet the REVEL Butler
While going to school for Neuroscience, Kendra Fike quickly realized that her obsession with numbers and data translated better in the digital marketing space than becoming an MD. Whether it was corporate hospitality in Las Vegas, boardrooms with Wallstreet investors, or sitting in a mom and pop shop, her vision is simply to help grow businesses. When she's not reading up on digital trends, you can find her outside with her husband and pup or volunteering and fostering for a local animal rescue group.
Inside the Cove
As mentioned above, Team Q2’s Give Light Cove is all about being a celebration of the community, those that have gone above and beyond to help others, a reflection of what Q2 hopes they bring by being a trusted news leader. New to the REVEL fold, getting their heads wrapped around the vision for their Cove has been the biggest challenge, but incredible partnerships with the rest of the team has made the process fun and easier than expected.
Team Q2 is eagerly anticipating the big day and getting to share their Cove with the attendees. Long after everything is said and done, they hope that those who encountered their Cove will leave inspired. Inspired to go forth and make their own difference in the community. Inspired to push outside of their comfort zone. To go out into the world and GIVE LIGHT.
As their name implies, this Cove is going to be focused less on color and more on, you guessed it, LIGHT!
