GFS was contracted to manage and run DAWN’s 20th annual event. The auction included both a silent and live auction, raffle, wine toss, dessert dash and raise the paddle. GFS managed all aspects of procurement, venue set-up, décor, check-in and check-out procedures, and volunteer management to ensure a smooth evening and increased donations and dollars for the event.
Domestic Abuse Women’s Network’s (DAWN) Annual Gala and Auction 2016
"I contracted with Gazala on behalf of a mutual client: Domestic Abuse Women's Network. It was such a relief to have someone with extensive event knowledge come in and handle all of the logistics: working with the venue, organizing volunteers, setting committee meeting agenda, and running all operations the night of. It allowed the senior staff to focus on greeting guests and making them feel welcome. I would love to work with Gazala and her team at GFS again!"
