Special Events

FROM GALAS TO DONOR CULTIVATION EVENTS TO VIRTUAL EVENTS, each year we produce a variety of large and small special events. With an eye always on the bottom line, we work to make events as profitable and painless as possible, establishing and nurturing relationships with current and new donors. Working closely with staff, volunteers and board members, we effectively engage your team in special event planning and fundraising. We know that special events must deliver a message to donors and we create events that are meaningful and creative. And we are not afraid of first time events.

“Thank you for an incredible event last night. In CASA's history we have never had such a successful fundraiser.  We broke $300K which is a tremendous, not to be taken lightly, milestone for us. And not only was the evening a financial success, the planning and execution were flawless. On top of that, you all are a delight to work with! So flexible and accommodating, and CALM in the storm of gala planning. We are so grateful you all have come into our lives!!!!:) I can't wait to start planning the next event with you all!”

“The Wingo NYC team sprung into action the moment we began to wonder if our in-person gala was going to be cancelled due to the pandemic. Right away, they put their creative minds together to create a plan for a virtual gala. Over 1,000 people tuned in! The event was inspiring, powerful and really fun! Guests loved it. They did a fabulous job capturing the essence of Figure Skating In Harlem and created a real feeling of togetherness. The virtual event format turned out to be a unique opportunity for FSH to reach a new audience, include our students and families, and it allowed us to invite many A-list celebrities to participate!  Despite enormous obstacles, we were even able to meet our fundraising goal!”
