Yoga Behind Bars Eat.Drink.Give! Week of Giving 2020

October 2020

For the second year in a row, Yoga Behind Bars hired the GFS Events team to assist with their annual Eat. Dink. Give! fundraiser. This year, their annual brunch shifted to a virtual Week of Giving with heart-warming videos, three live Zoom events, and an online auction. GFS and YBB worked closely to create a first-hand, immersive virtual experience for donors to experience similar programming that YBB offers their students behind bars. During the Week of Giving, GFS assisted in production and registration for the Trauma-Informed Yoga Class, Mindfulness Meditation & Social Justice Conversation, and Virtual Happy Hour. In addition to the multiple days of Zoom events, GFS assisted with Virtual Ambassador solicitation and organization, email and social media marketing, and donor outreach initiatives.
Fun Fact
We incorporated a virtual yoga class, a virtual mindful mediation session and an impromptu guitar solo as part of this event!
"The GFS team was wonderful to work with. Their expertise and organization took away much of the stress our development team had during the transition into going virtual. We truly couldn't have done it without them!"
