GFS Events was contracted to work with Attain for the third year in a row for their annual luncheon. We realized we had to go virtual and we turned our usual luncheon event to a Week of Giving Campaign filled with meaningful videos from clients, board members staff and volunteers. GFS Events created messaging and an email marketing campaign, assisted with all collateral for the event and managed the virtual ambassadors and audience development. We guided Attain Housing on best practices for a virtual event and helped them raise over $170,000 for the event.
Attain Housing Home is Where the Heart Is Week of Giving 2020
We had a keynote address from Lauren McGowen, Associate Vice President at United Way of King County.
"We've used GFS for three of our fall fundraisers, two of which were in-person luncheons and then our 2020 event was a virtual week of giving. From start to finish, the GFS team is extremely helpful and hands-on with every step of the event planning and can cater their services to whatever needs you have for the event. For day-of action, they are without peer in their abilities to work with venues, caterers, and attendees to make the event go off without a hitch. In 2020, they helped us a ton by providing expert guidance as events evolved throughout the year due to COVID-19 and altered their services to help us provide great organization, promotional duties, and donor communications for our Week of Giving. We were able to nearly make our fundraising goal that we had set pre-COVID, so it was a huge success! GFS rocks and I would recommend them to any non-profit in need of fundraising and event planning help."
