A working lunch

The Association of Fundraising Professionals Host
Special Events: Techniques and Ideas for Maximizing Special Events and Functions in the Nonprofit World ( Aug. 14th)

I never shy a way from a lunch time outing especially when it includes a fabulous catered lunch at the Le' Enfant Plaza Hotel with event planners and non-profit professionals from some of the most prominent organizations in DC. This past Thursday, representatives from Wolf Trap and the Human Society shared their tricks of the trade on making each event count. We got a glimpse of the cutest pics from this year’s Bark Ball, a fantastic event that goes to support the Washington Human Society and one of the most popular annual events in DC. We also took a look at their social networking sites and discussed the importance that such sites play in the success of today’s events.

Not a bad lunch if I do say so myself. I walked away feeling informed and a little inspired.

Interested in learning more about the AFPDC or Attending one of their events. Check out their website at:
