Description:
We are excited to host our 31st Annual Trees of Enchantment event, our largest fundraiser of the year, which takes place at the end of the year. This elegant brunch event is critical in raising funds to support our mission.

  • Sponsor Outreach: Identify and approach local businesses, communities, and organizations to secure sponsorships for the event.
  • Event Planning Support: Assist with planning and organizing event details to ensure a successful and memorable experience.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Background in event planning, fundraising, or related fields.
  • Strong communication and networking skills.
  • Passionate about supporting adults with developmental disabilities.
  • Ability to commit a few hours a week.

Benefits:

  • Gain experience in event planning and fundraising for a non-profit organization.
  • Contribute to a meaningful cause that makes a significant impact on the lives of adults with developmental disabilities.
  • Be part of a dedicated and compassionate team
