A sampling of our work, process, and results
“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!”

“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.”

“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”.

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“Government Event Services (a division of Toast of the Town) provided exceptional support organizing and planning Governor Dunleavy’s inaugural Alaska Sustainable Energy Conference. Martha, Sarah, and the rest of their team were professional, responsive and meticulous throughout the entire process. GES helped our office deploy public resources efficiently resulting in the conference coming in under budget. We would welcome the participation of Government Event Services in procurements for future projects.”

"It has been such a true pleasure working with Government Event Services (a division of Toast of the Town). They exude competence and with their involvement, I really can trust and relax that things are under control based on their leadership. They are gracefully able to work within challenges, with a perpetual focus on getting the group to positive and productive decision-making. Most impressive is the fact that they accomplish all of this with such quiet grace that our team members likely only notice the fact that we are more productive when they are present. Truly, words can’t fully express my gratitude."
"Ace team to help deliver quality events with premier project management. They will deliver everything they said they would clearly and effectively."
