        Once I was helping an org. with their gala and they created poker chips with the face of the person they honored at the gala!

    We increased our event fundraising by having less items. We did it initially because of space, but realized less is more! Our silent auctions have 1:3 ratio packages to guests. Also having a client video of course is important, but having the client featured in the video live on stage at the event dramatically increases our fund-a-need giving.
