HAPPY 2023!
Dear friends of Powered by Professionals

Happy New Year from Powered by Professionals!

2022 was an exciting year for us as we celebrated PBP's 20th anniversary alongside the return of in-person events. We also continued to expand our team and welcomed some new team members!

This past year we welcomed numerous new clients and planned and produced 50+ galas, run/walks and parties all over the country, including events in New York, Chicago, Boston, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Dayton!
Going into 2023, we wanted to share some of our most popular blog posts from last year as you plan out your fundraising strategy.

I also had the chance to participate in a handful of webinars and panels and we have included the links to those as well if you would like to check those out for additional insights.

If you are interested in seeing what PBP has going on in the next couple of months, please visit our Upcoming Events page.

Here's to another year of successful events!

It Pays to Foster Great Vendor Relationships
Fostering successful and fruitful event day relationships with vendors (most especially with A/V teams) is not only my favorite part of event planning, but also a task that Powered by Professionals handles seamlessly every time to help produce a financially and emotionally engaging event. Mutual respect and appreciation are appropriate everywhere in life, and absolutely in the charity event day world.
