Taste of the Valley 2017

July 2017

GFS Events managed the 7th 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 in Carnation. 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 restaurant sponsorships and permitting with the Health Department. 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. The event included a live auction, three silent auctions, a dessert dash, raffle and raise the paddle program.
