Corporate and Not for Profit Event Planning


Planning large events, whether for customers, employees or donors, where funds raised represent critical operating revenue, is not in the job description of most employees. Adding this responsibility onto existing staff takes time and concentration away from their daily work and may result in an uninspiring event. Hiring a professional planner gives you a dedicated resource, experienced in all the nuances of event orchestration, as well as fresh concepts for a successful affair. Monica Relyea Events has provided event planning services to a host of organizations in the Hudson Valley. MRE’s portfolio includes Starry Starry Night galas, Guinness World Record events, celebrity chef dinners, beer festivals, community awards galas, garden tours, fundraising walks and political events. Complete Corporate and Not for Profit Event Planning Services are customizable to suit any needs.
