Communities in Schools of Washington’s 2023 Night at the Prom Fundraiser

March 2023

GFS Events partnered with Communities in Schools of Washington to produce their 2023 fundraising auction which marked their return to an in-person format after three years. The event included a cocktail hour featuring games and a jazz band, raffle, dinner and live auction, dessert dash and raise the paddle. GFS Events managed the event timeline, vendor communications, and assisted in the event layout, format, and décor. We also oversaw the auction, registration and donation platform, and provided day of event program coordination.

CIS-WA successfully raised over $330,000 to support their mission to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Fun Fact
To incorporate CIS-WA's mission into the prom event theme, we engaged students from a local high school's horticulture program to design and handcraft beautiful corsages and boutonnieres, as well as table centerpieces for the occasion.
