How To Plan Your Fabulous Fundraising Event

You have the vision and enthusiasm to run an event to raise money for your cause.


Of course, running a successful fundraising event is easier said than done.

So no matter how big or small the fundraiser is, there’s one thing that always attributes to their success.

The Luck of the Irish in March

The month of March since 1991 has been proclaimed as Irish American Heritage month to recognize the contributions that Irish Immigrants and their relatives have played in the formation of our country.  There are roughly about 33.3 million Americans—10.5% of the total population—reported Irish ancestry in the 2013 Census.  This compares with a population of 6.4 million on the island of Ireland, who knew?

Now with so many Irish Americans now living in the United States there are some Irish Wedding traditions as well.  A few of them are the Claddagh Ring, an Irish Wedding Toast, Bagpipes… Continue reading

March is Wild over the Women in History


March is the beginning of Spring and what better month than to celebrate National Women’s History Month.  With spring comes the budding of flowers and everything that had been dried up and brown is beginning to bug and grow.  Just like certain women in history, they found their voices and grew stronger with each passing day.

Each year the National Women’s… Continue reading

Thinking outside the box for your Denver baby shower theme.


You want your baby shower to be as unique as your baby is going to be.  Think outside the box of what you used to be the “normal” baby shower given to the soon to be moms.  The classic baby shower theme that’s been going on for years has changed.  The sky’s the limit, what kind of theme have you thought about?

Perhaps you already know the gender of your new bundle of joy and want a colored theme shower.  Will the guests all have to dress up in pink or blue based on little baby… Continue reading

Is it a boy? Is it a girl? Throw a gender reveal party at the Q!


So your best friend is having a baby and you want to throw a gender reveal party for her. This type of party seems to be a new trend in the way the soon to be parents are letting family and friends know the sex of their baby.
A little whacky huh?  But oh so much fun.

This type of party takes a little more planning because the new mom will have to ask the ultrasound technician to write down the sex of the baby and place it in an envelope.  She’s going to have to hand it… Continue reading
