A Fresh Set of Eyes

June 2, 2016


Over that past few years we have zeroed in on our value to organizations and have seen an increase in clients who have event managers or event support on staff. To be honest we didn’t think this was our target group. Why would an organization who had an event person need two more event people?  And then we remembered what it was like, how tough the job was when we were those event people working for a not-for-profit. It is hard and time does not often exist to be able to build and manage all the relationships, the budgets, abundance of events and to do it all with innovation and creativity! 


We’ve been lucky to work with some great event peeps who appreciate what we can bring to their events and do for their sanity! Here are a few areas our clients have said we proved most helpful.


We save you time!

Let us focus on the nitty gritty details and logistics so you can manage what’s important – relationships! In the fundraising world, relationship building is the most important factor to raising much needed funds. We will manage the details, marketing, communications, fundraising initiatives, volunteers AND pull all the suppliers together and make set up and event day a breeze. We look after the “behind the scenes” details so you can be the face of the organization; managing and building donor and sponsor relationships.


We bring clients unique and innovative event ideas.

Events need to be refreshed and revitalized and it is hard to do that when you don’t have space (or time) to be creative. When we ask our clients why they do something a certain way, the answer is generally “because we have always done it like that.” That is where we help! Let’s look at some new ways of doing things to help streamline your processes and to WOW guests.


We help you raise more money.

Not only do we know how to plan and execute flawless events, we know best fundraising practices which we teach our clients, to help maximize funds raised from the event. Our team has experience working in the not for profit industry, we take fundraising courses to stay current and up to date on fundraising trends and we like to introduce new fundraising ideas for clients.


"Having Jennifer and Ashlee involved in the planning of our biennial Gala was essential to its success. Being an event professional myself, I understand how much time it takes to coordinate the logistics and operations of an event along with managing relationships, working with the planning committee, meeting with internal teams – the list goes on! Ashlee and Jen took over a huge piece of the planning which gave me more time to focus on relationships with donors, sponsors and the committee. In addition, they collaborated closely with me and my team to ensure that everything came together smoothly and successfully for the event, which was invaluable."

Let us join your team and help make your next event an even bigger success and give your staff time to focus on the important job of building relationships and raising money!
