Northwest Art Center’s Art in the Heart of Duvall Auction 2015

June 2015

GFS consulted on the Northwest Art Center’s Art in the Heart annual Benefit Auction. This was a first time event for the nonprofit and modeled differently from their other events.  The event included both a silent and live auction, raffle, and raise the paddle. GFS introduced a sponsorship component to the auction and consulted on all aspects of procurement, venue set-up, check-in and check-out procedures, and volunteer management to ensure a smooth evening and increased donations and dollars for the event. We were helped to make this one of their most successful fundraising events in their history.
Fun Fact
"We are a very tiny non-profit in a very small town. Gazala came highly recommended because of her reputation helping other local non-profits run successful fundraisers. The Northwest Art Center survives through fundraising and so hiring Gazala was the ultimate test of the 'spend money to make money' adage. Gazala advised us and worked so closely with us and was at every meeting with excellent suggestions. Every step of the way, she was with us. The day of the event is when she turned on the jet burners and went above and beyond anything we could have expected! She helped us with our largest fundraiser to date and we could not have been more thrilled! She's so easy to work with and she provides serious results. You can be assured that we hired her for our next event! This tiny non-profit is on its way to bigger goals, thanks in part to Gazala and GFS Events.Highly recommended!"
