Carolyn's top tips to make your events special are:
1. Don't rely on corporate sponsors. Individuals make up the largest portion of donors.
2. Pause for the cause. Highlight the reason for the event in a memorable way.
3. Find a common passion that brings people together: Wine, Food, Dresses, etc...
4. Have Fun!
