RAISE + ARRANGE was inspired in the valleys of a pandemic, when Do Good Events recognized the depth of knowledge in the events industry and the opportunity for a platform to showcase talents, knowledge, and products to the nonprofit  community. This event supports our nonprofit community while allowing our event partners access to nonprofit event planners.

Fundraising and Event Logistics in the Virtual Event Era

On May 27,2020, Do Good Events hosted a virtual conference that brought together non-profit planners to learn about the latest best practices for planning for and executing their upcoming virtual events. We also discussed safety for when we can return to live events. It was a wonderful, high energy day that we are quite excited about. Below is an overview of the day and information on how to access the recordings from the day.

Brave New Workshop

John Sweeney & Margi Simmons

Special recognition goes to John Sweeney and Margi Simmons of the Brave New Workshop who provided professional emcee service as well as a comedy break during lunch. A professional emcee is critical to smooth transitions and their additions of humor helped to keep the energy up all day long.

This was a wonderful day, and we know there are many who could benefit from the information provided, but were not able to attend on the day of the event.
