Seattle Music Partners Notes of Spring Virtual Fundraiser 2020

April 2020

GFS Events was hired by Seattle Music Partners to plan and execute their 20th Anniversary Gala. We coordinated their budget, venue, timeline and logistics for the event. Due to COVID-19, we shifted gears and moved their event online to a Notes of Spring Week of Giving. GFS assisted with virtual ambassador and social media communication as well as assisted with email marketing and messaging, and helped with creating a social media challenge. GFS also assisted with video content by interviewing their Executive Director to kick off the virtual fundraiser. Each day the GFS Events team assisted in releasing video messaging to share more about the organization and their fundraising goals.
Fun Fact
As one of our first virtual events, we implemented a challenge that asked guests to play an instrument and/or sing and share their video over social media.
"GFS Events helped us quickly turn our planned fundraiser into an online virtual fundraiser. As we all adjusted to the changing conditions, GFS always helped guide us through the process with expertise and positive attitudes, and we ended up with a great event turn out that really reflected our organizations values! We're already excited to see what they can do with our next in person event!"

Working with GFS events was delightful. Gazala and her team are super attentive, fast to adjust, and reliable. They guided us in the transition from an in-person to a virtual event with so much heart and curiosity. I'm beyond happy we took the risk! Our event was successful, and we could not have done it without GFS. I deeply appreciate how organized and on top of things they are. Highly recommend!
