Taste of the Valley 2016

August 2016

GFS chaired and managed the 6th Annual Taste of the Valley Benefit Auction benefitting the Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance. The event took place in an open field on a working farm.  We had to bring in electricity, water, lighting and all rental equipment to turn the field into a gorgeous venue for the evening.  The event included a silent and live auction and tastes from the Pacific Northwest’s best restaurants. GFS managed all procurement, coordinated venue set-up, check-in and check-out procedures, and coordinated the restaurant sponsorships and permitting. We created an event timeline and coordinated all aspects of the auction to ensure a smooth evening and increased donations and dollars for the event.
Fun Fact
“Gazala and her team at GFS Events are amazing! I've seen the results of their     efforts at a number of Non-Profit fundraising events; from community walks, to golf events, to dinner and silent/live auctions, she knows what she's doing. Smart organizations hire Gazala to handle the details of the event that will raise the most funds. She and her team know how to make fundraising events successful,    how to leverage the organization's volunteers and make it memorable so that participants want to come again and continue to contribute.”
