Independence Day Fundraiser

Non profit client tasked OSEM to provide all fundraising and logistics management for an event which would capitalize on their unique lakefront venue during the Independence Day Fireworks display.


  • Developed and sold sponsorship opportunities for event
  • Solicited in-kind and for hire vendors including tents, catering, bar service, decorations, DJ, security, among others
  • Managed all details of logistics for this difficult outdoor venue, given limited parking, bathroom facilities, potential weather issues
  • Lead committee of volunteers, non profit staff, and Board of Directors to consensus on decisions around event and implementation of event
  • Event sold out while also raising more money than budgeted
