“When we started EDEN, four years ago, I remember sitting around the table with our team and discussing how amazing it would be to have Eve at EDEN. It seemed like such impossible dream back then. So to have her headline our fourth year is a dream come true, a testament to what we have accomplished as a team,” said Christine De La Rosa, founder and producer of EDEN Pride Events.
