Acres of Diamonds Gala and Auction 2019

September 2019

GFS Events had the pleasure of assisting Acres of Diamonds, a local nonprofit that provides transitional housing for women and mothers with children, with their 2019 benefit dinner and auction. The night included a cocktail hour, live auction, raise the paddle and ended with a dessert dash. The GFS team provided pre-event planning expertise by assisting in procurement outreach, venue coordination, and collateral creation. Day of Event duties for the team included registration management for 200+ attendees, volunteer coordination, and management of all venue logistics to ensure a successful event.

"The GFS team has supported the Acres’ team from year to year by providing consistency, tools, expertise and professionalism. Gazala is quick to respond and creatively navigates challenges. She is driven by her passion to see homeless moms and kids find safety as a result of the Acres’ Fall Benefit Dinner and Auction. Every year with GFS proves to be more successful in meeting the needs of the Acres’ families who are creating lasting life change."
