Hi everyone,Please note that this community will be shut down in the near future.Instead, we have opened up a new community focusing exclusively on professional event planners, helping to bring them together in a sharing and friendly community.So please join event_planners Together we can make it a fantastic and frequently used community!Take care,your mod :)
Just wondering if anyone had any new or unique ideas or themes for live/ silent auctions. We've done 10x10 playhouses for the past two years, but the hassle with moving them on tow trucks and the expense hasn't proven worth the return. Thanks!
Well, since I'm the moderator, I suppose I should definitely adhere to the rule and post one of these :)I'm 24, live in Ottawa (Canada) and am the founder and executive director of a nonprofit organization, The Canadian 3C Foundation. On a volunteer basis, I'm the co-chair of The Snowflake Ball (www.snowflakeball.com). On top of that I'm the owner of an events planning company, Red Cake Productions.I've been organizing fundraisers since I've been 12, mostly balls and auctions, attended by 300 - 600 guests...so I would say I have quite a bit of experience in both event planning and fundraising!My absolutely two favourite links are www.bizbash.com and www.seejanework.com (for the last, I like to keep all my files organized!)Umm...apart from that, I just started up this community yesterday, but I REALLY hope that it gets alot of members and is highly successful. I think it's a great idea for a community and there doesn't seem to be much out there on Live Journal in this field.Bye!Yael :)
