Jesuit Volunteer Corp NW’s 2019 Seattle Benefit

May 2019

GFS Events was contracted to manage and oversee the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest’s Seattle Benefit. We worked with the JVCN team from Portland to coordinate all aspects of the fundraising event, including venue management, catering, table captain coordination and registration. We also worked with the JVCN team to coordinate the day of event stage management and assisted with the raffle and set-up and tear-down.
Fun Fact
The festive brunch included a mimosa station which guests enjoyed while exploring the raffle items.
"This was our first year working with GFS Events to manage and oversee our annual Seattle Benefit. Gazala and her team are extremely skilled in events management and were a delight to work with. I really appreciated being able to utilize their event planning expertise to help us make some strategic changes. Our staff is based in Portland, so it was very beneficial to have GFS on the ground in Seattle to coordinate all the logistics for the event, including venue management, catering, and registration. They created table captain packets and managed the    table captain process, which saved staff time so we could focus on building relationships and securing sponsorships. GFS also helped us create attractive sponsorship package materials. We look forward to working with them again next year!"
