I did it. I officially pulled off an event. I didn’t do it all alone, but was 1 of 2 people in charge of this whole thing. It went well- there was a few unexpected problems, but Katie (my co-worker I planned the event with) and I knocked them out. I didn’t actually see the event happen- I was too busy doing check in, finalizing the silent auction, and doing check out. People said it went well- Chris volunteered and ended up being the audiovisual guy- he saw the whole thing, including an impromptu singing of “God Bless America”. That wasn’t in the plans- one of our honorees started it- I don’t know why.
Here’s what the table settings looked like
I put in over 60 hours between Starbucks and the Y this past week. I’m exhausted, but thrilled that I did it- It was a huge event that I planned and it went well. Yay.
