We held a fundraising event, Archangel Holiday Boutique 2016, on October 7th and 8th 2016. I’d been preparing for this boutique for one year as one of the organizers, starting from December 2015. Finally, we finished two event days in a success 🙂
There were 3 organizers, and we had meetings once or twice per month. There were several difficulties in proceeding the event preparation, but over all, I’ve enjoyed doing them. We picked up over 20 high quality local artists, scattered flyers and post cards in down towns across the Bay Area, and made new website and kept posting on SNS pages.
The event venue preparation was also a lot of work, but the main organizer did really a great job about it. I personally enjoyed decorating the venue 2-3 days before the event dates.
On the event days, I was working as a cashier, and greeted guests. Thanks to the gorgeous weather, I had suntanned… oops…
I also worked as one of the artists. I even had my booth there 🙂
I loved talking to customers face to face, and giving some advices!!
The venue looked really beautiful.
I’ve made some new artist friends 🙂 With my favorite artists -an owner of Aplat, a culinary tote store, and that of Flowie, an original textile bags and accessory products.
I’m so happy to have spent my whole year to this fundraising event!! Our goal, to raise funds in support of local foster children and to spread awareness of the current need for more volunteer mentors, seems to be ended up in a good results 🙂
I won’t be joining in the organizer team for 2017 since I’ll be very busy with my own life, but hope this event will continue for good cause!!
