After speaking with a handful of "experts" in coordinating events for nonprofits, we were discouraged as all of them told us not to expect to raise much. Aurice, however, had a positive attitude, was encouraging, and we ended up raising 127% of our goal. We will be ecstatic to work with Aurice again in the future.”

They modernized the conference, expanded our audience, and provided invaluable guidance throughout the process. They helped us identify conference colors (brand identity) that connected to our mission, vision, and desired outcomes. She provided consultation on the development of the Sponsorship Guide and talked me through how to negotiate the venue contracts (venue, sound, security, etc) Aurice's creative suggestions, like live-streaming keynotes and fun activities during intermission/passing periods, added excitement. Working with her was a pleasure. Overall, the event was a hit and made the County Superintendent of Schools extremely proud!”

“Aurice Guyton Events helped the San Francisco Marin Medical Society to plan and put on its Annual Gala, which brought together hundreds of physicians at Fort Mason in San Francisco - our first in-person event in over two years following COVID restrictions. Aurice was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was accessible and communicative, brought great ideas to the table, and brought an attention to detail and great care to the evening of the event, trouble-shooting on site and assembling a great team to support us. Aurice has great relationships with vendors, too. We'll be working with Aurice Guyton Events in the future, and can confidently and highly recommend.”
