TESTIMONIALS

“The Division of Behavioral Health was very satisfied with Government Event Services, and the support they provided to make our virtual conference successful. Their attitude throughout was positive, optimistic, and confident. Most critical was a point near to the actual conference dates where we encountered some problems with the virtual platform we were intending to use. They took our concerns seriously, addressed them thoughtfully but quickly, and made a significant adjustment to resolve the problem. The conference went on to be tremendously successful!”

 

Jim McLaughlin, LPC
Behavioral Health Grant Program Manager
Division of Behavioral Health

“Toast of the Town ROCKS! I am completely amazed at what they pulled off for our fundraiser! They have a real gift for this work that they do and their passion comes through in both professionalism and quality and exceeding expectations. Wow! Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf.”

 

Dave Lamothe
Business Administrator
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska

“We engaged Toast of the Town this spring to provide an engaging sponsor experience and create several design elements for our 1st Annual Covenant House Alaska Telethon. The team was consistently prepared, proactive and professional. They took our vision and brought those ideas, and so many more, to fruition in a way that clearly demonstrated their expertise in nonprofit fundraising. And their handling of the logistics made it feel like there was no detail forgotten.”

 

Holly Lee
Associate Director of Development
Covenant House Alaska 

Working with Government Event Services was fantastic! We had a very short turn-around time, and they were able to meet all of our needs. Our working meetings were on-time and professional, and they met every deadline. I would definitely work with them again”.

 

Michelle Torres
Outreach Branch Chief
Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management

“Our major fundraiser was a month away when the pandemic occurred and closed all in-person events. We were in a panic, however, Toast of the Town came to the rescue. They pivoted our event to a creative and highly successful virtual event in less than a month. We even made our fundraising goals!”

 

Laurie Hoefer
Head of School
Pacific Northern Academy

“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Toast of the Town. As a small non-profit, we cannot afford an on-staff development director so Toast of the Town fills that role beautifully. They guide our fundraising efforts from event planning to donor development. Under that guidance, we have surpassed our fundraising goals two years in a row! Toast of the Town is worth every penny.”

 

Laurie Hoefer
Head of School
Pacific Northern Academy

“I just wanted to send a note to thank Toast of the Town for their help with my talk for the Sitka Whalefest. Given all the bells and whistles, the requirements everyone had to put in for a live performance, the time zone differences, and everything else, I felt a lot better knowing they were there. It was also wonderful that you could make the sound louder on my videos, practice the setup with me alone, run the polls capably even as I was pushing for time… just everything.”
