"I've been to hundreds of events in my career as a photographer, and have never seen one so well-crafted for the enjoyment of its guests and employees. The Widen staff went the extra mile to answer my questions, make sure I had fun, and keep my glass full. I left feeling more connected to the Widen folks and my fellow DAMsters."

- Meg Buscema, Georgia State University
