Hello to our Canadian friends! We are so excited about our first international RISE. You will notice that we are transacting in US Dollars. Due to the possibility of foreign transaction fees that may occur from your financial institution, we have adjusted ticket prices down for this event relative to the pricing of our US-based events. We at the Hollis Co decided to take the hit on these fees so you don’t have to as we continue to attempt to serve you well.
