Community fundraisers, including galas and benefits, aim to bring people together to raise awareness, funds, and support for a cause. They are a great way to showcase your organization and the people who have contributed to the success of it. The possibilities of community fundraisers are endless, ranging from intimate sisterhood luncheons to immersive, multi-day retreats.
Jessie provides event planning and consultation for every aspect of events, including venue selection, creative decor, liaising with vendors, and day-of coordination. These services will weave your mission into your event, highlighting the values of your organization in each element of the production. This will make your event stand out, be better attended, run smoothly, be more memorable, and, ultimately, generate more revenue.
Jessie will guide you in creating an efficient event committee of volunteers, setting and achieving goals, weighing costs and benefits, liaising with and selecting vendors, implementing a feasible timeline, creating a marketing and advertising plan, and executing a theme throughout all design elements from invitations to room decor. Jessie's overall goal is to create an event that reflects your organization in every way.
