WPSR’s 2022 Health Justice Gala

September 2022

The GFS Events team partnered with Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility to organize their 2022 Health Justice Gala. The funds raised from this event went directly to support their mission to create a healthy, sustainable, just, and peaceful world. The evening included a seated dinner, an exceptional program, a Live Auction, Raise the Paddle, and Dessert Dash. WA state Representative My-Linh Thai and Senator Joe Nguyen were presented with the 2022 WPSR Paul Besson Award. GFS created the timeline, oversaw the planning process, communicated with Table Captains, advised on event theme and decor, led auction procurement activities, created and monitored the event website and registrations, and coordinated the day-of event logistics.

Fun Fact
One of our Live Auction experiences was a Private Pickleball Session for Six with WPSR's Executive Director Max Savishinsky and Development Coordinator Devon Pimentelli! It was a huge hit!
WPSR was fortunate to have GFS support us for our major annual fundraiser and we couldn't have been more fortunate to have their deep experience and expertise throughout the process. The entire team are incredibly skilled and professional. They made a huge workload feel manageable, and made a nerve-wracking fundraising undertaking feel doable and even fun at times! We highly recommend GFS!
