Medic One Foundation’s Gala Fundraiser 2018

October 2018

GFS Events was contracted to manage and execute Medic One Foundation’s Lifesavers’ Gala. This complicated 500 person event included an evening of fine dining, exciting auctions, raffles, dessert dash and a raise the paddle to raise money for our region’s firefighters and paramedics who respond every day to catastrophic disasters and medical emergencies. GFS Events coordinated procurement efforts, volunteer management and stage management for the event. The event was a Phantom of the Opera themed event and raised a record $550,000 for the Medic One Foundation.
Fun Fact
True to the title of a First Responder, we had paramedics help us in all aspects of the event, from handing out wine to selling raffle tickets to helping clean up the entire ballroom and event in record time!
"Gazala and her team are true special event experts. Their work on our Gala and with our volunteers was very professional, well organized, and creative. I would confidently put any event in the hands of Gazala and her team, knowing that the end result would be outstanding!"
