    elves giving out gifts -- charity events

    The holidays are an important time to give back.  We love the idea of adding to your holiday event with a charitable element.  In your invitation, suggest guests bring a children's gift, non-perishable food, or item of clothing.  

    One company that took this theme and ran with it was Groupon.  Last year they partnered with Operation Warm to provide new winter coats for underprivileged children.  Local families were welcomed with free coats and the children were excited when personalized gifts were distributed by costumed elves.  

    A charitable party just happens to be our speciality, and we would love to help you create something new and different for your next event.  Contact us today!

  • 10for10 Making a Difference Awards + Welcoming Venny

    Recently, we partnered with the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women and welcomed one of their members to our office.  IEEW is a charity that provides business training and mentorship programs for women entrepreneurs in Afghanistan and Rwanda.

    Over this past summer we were lucky enough to have Venny join our team and work alongside her.  She's a successful business owner in Rwanda and plans many government events there, as well as weddings and social engagements.  We enjoyed looking at some of her amazing photos from past events in her home country.  It was wonderful to get to know Venny.  She has a calming presence, a beautiful smile – and is a woman after our own hearts who loves shopping!  Checking out the malls around the city was a particular highlight for her.

    In July, Venny and Eventures helped with the 10for10 Making a Difference Awards event at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club.  Awards were given to 10 women who’ve made a difference in Oklahoma to mark IEEW’s 10th Year of Global Impact.  The students in town from Rwanda & Afghanistan joined to celebrate 10 amazing Oklahoma women, shop student handicrafts in the pop-up shop, and enjoy some tasty apps.
