The Jewish Day School Game Day 2021 Livestream

March 2021

The Jewish Day School of Metropolitan Seattle hired GFS Events to coordinate all aspects of their livestream virtual event and online auction. GFS was in charge of vendor management, event logistics, and online auction organization for JDS’s Virtual Game Day event.  This engaging livestream had an engaging MC and Auctioneer, several creative videos showcasing the JDS community, and even live appearances from the JDS Jaguar on stage! With a countdown clock, an interactive thermometer that showed our fundraising progress and auction items featured on the large screen, the GFS Events team was able to make the at-home audience feel engaged and ready to show support for their beloved school. JDS raised $400,000, 133% of their goal! Check out the livestreamed event below!
Fun Fact
The JDS mascot fell off the stage during the live auction but recovered quickly and made it back on stage for his big entrance!
"I worked with an organization that typically brought in a fundraising assistant each year and instead, we decided to hire GFS events and I absolutely believe it was the best choice. Not only did they provide a skilled auction coordinator to help us plan and execute our second virtual event, as importantly, Gazala and her team provided valuable expertise in guiding us with options and decisions to consider throughout the process. I highly recommend GFS!"
