Emerald Awards

What an incredible night we had supporting Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida at their Emerald Awards where donors bid feverishly to win bucket list trips and experiences in support for a great cause! Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Their extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

Nothing makes us happier than a fervent bidder winning a fabulous trip, in support of an incredible organization!

They offer hope and dignity during life-limiting illnesses, and comfort surrounding death in the patient and family’s chosen environment.

3 Ways to Rein in the Rowdiness at your Next Event

There is no question that you want your guests to have fun at your fundraising event. But be careful not to let that fun get too out of control! A rowdy room makes it difficult for you to properly move your night along. You may find yourself behind in many of your fundraising activities. Constantly trying to control a disruptive crowd will inevitably slow down your event. You will also find that a lot of your guests will become disgruntled and disconnected when a room becomes too rowdy. That’s because the rowdiness often stems from a small group of people (usually just one or two loud tables). With this said, we have some valuable tips to help control a room that is on its way out of control
