Testimonials

“I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Melissa in March of 2013.  Being the owner of a race and club management platform, I work with race director/event planners on a daily basis.  I have never partnered with someone who is more dedicated or works harder to ensure the success of an event than Melissa.  She treats every event as if it were her own and in doing so, gives it everything she has.”

 -John Keehan, Partner, The Driven Race and Club Solutions

“El Campo Little League needed help with our fundraising efforts to build a new state-of-the art baseball and softball complex.  We reached out to Melissa for grant writing leadership and she was brilliant!  We were given more help than we knew we needed.  Her services were high quality and very friendly.  What I liked most was her prompt and business-like approach.  Melissa completely understood our needs and helped us achieve what we wanted to do.  That is exactly why Melissa helped us hit home runs with our fundraising efforts!  I can’t wait to see what magic she will work in the upcoming months!”

-Pat Krpec, Past President, El Campo Little League

“Melissa is head and tails above the rest when it comes to ongoing communication about an event. While many event planners will take on a role and leave your organization out of the details, Melissa takes open communication to the next level. You can count on her to be honest, candid and thorough. She offers excellent promotion ability and makes good use of her contacts to get things done.”
