OSO Memorial Slide PNW Paradise Ball 2019

June 2019

GFS Events was hired by the Oso Slide Committee to assist with creating their first fundraising gala. GFS created an event timeline, provided input on marketing material, managed auction procurement, oversaw the table captain communication, managed the logistics around catering, the venue, the emcee, and volunteers. Funds were raised to support the building of a permanent memorial dedicated to the 43 people who fell victim to the slide, the first responders, and the communities of the Stillaguamish Valley that came together after this devastating event.
Fun Fact
We incorporated native Pacific Northwest flowers and foliage as living centerpieces for each table.
