"Virtual Galas, Real-World Lessons"

 

Dinnertime galas – where Friends and other donors wine and dine with popular authors to benefit their library – are a favorite fundraiser model in communities large and small. For obvious reasons, though, it’s not a strategy that translates with great ease into the digital space!

Fresh off their first-ever virtual Opus & Olives event (Minnesota’s largest Friends-sponsored author gala, and one that’s been on the scene 16 years), The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library are hosting a FREE webinar on the subject.


Liz Boyd (Director of Special Events) and Greg Giles (Sr. Director of Development) will recap what went well, what didn’t, and offer replicable ideas worth your consideration. Hosts will also welcome your stories about transitioning long-standing fundraisers to the virtual space – good, bad, and otherwise!

“Virtual Galas, Real-World Lessons” will take place 12:00-1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 14.
