Buffalo Soldiers Museum reached out to GFS Events to help them plan and execute their unique virtual panel discussion celebrating the Buffalo Soldiers and Negro League baseball. This event brought the community together to celebrate historical milestones while raising funds for their museum, community exhibits and youth educational programs. Rick Rizzs, play by play announcer for the Seattle Mariners, was the emcee and on the panel: Bill North (former Major League player), Aaron Pointer (American retired baseball player), Joe Staton (American retired baseball player), and Lyle Kenai Wilson (Research and writer). GFS assisted with email and social media marketing, created the event branding and slide deck, communicated with the emcee and panelists, set-up the Zoom panel discussion, and hosted the event.
