The inaugural affair, executed by the 360 Agency with the support of the NFL, brought together a stellar lineup of honorees, each recognized for their outstanding achievements and contributions.

The event kicked off with a powerful message of unity from Josephine Martinez, Senior Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for the NFL, who commended Women Raise the Game for organizing such a historic event. A poignant highlight of the evening was when NFL players took the stage to honor the women who have been their steadfast supporters throughout their careers—their mothers and wives. With heartfelt speeches and gestures of appreciation, these athletes expressed profound gratitude for the unwavering encouragement, support, and sacrifices made by these remarkable women.

Juju Smith, New England Patriots Wide Receiver and Super Bowl Champion paid tribute to his mother, acknowledging her as a force of nature who played an instrumental role in shaping him into the man he is today.

Amidst the breathtaking floral ambiance and vibrant atmosphere, attendees were treated to a special performance by Grammy Award-winning producer and celebrity DJ, Jermaine Dupri, who kept the energy high throughout the event. It was an unforgettable experience filled with inspiration, celebration, and camaraderie as guests shared stories of empowerment and achievement.

"This event is a tribute to the women whose tireless efforts have often gone unnoticed," remarked Tish Galindo, CEO of 360 Agency and visionary behind Women Raise the Game. "They are the pillars of success within the NFL, shaping players' careers, steering organizations, and driving impactful initiatives for the betterment of communities."

Women Raise the Game exemplified the spirit of inclusivity, diversity, and empowerment, reflecting the ongoing efforts to create a more equitable and supportive environment for women in sports and beyond.
