Chairman and Founder

The Bridal and Event Networking Group (BENG) was conceived to provide opportunities for vendors, who provide goods and services to weddings and events, to network and build professional peer relationships.

Since 2005, it has been my pleasure to lead this great group of Vendors who daily promote excellence in the event industry. 

Board of Directors:

The board of directors is the group of individuals appointed to represent members.  The board's responsibility is to establish policies for BENG and provide oversight.  The board makes all decisions regarding the governance of the organization.  All board positions are voluntary.  We meet at the end of the month to address the business of the group and to approve any new applications.

Molly is proud to have introduced her mini-donut catering to the Greater Houston area in 2018.  Donut Junkie started in 2010 and has traveled with her military family over three states.  To her, being a part of BENG is more than just a networking group.  It's friendships, business to business relationships, a support group, and what she likes to call, "her church."
