I’ve been a volunteer for about 20 years with various US and International organizations raising organizing fundraising events. My passion is to organize events and fundraising.

  1. My experience includes organizing live and virtual events
  2. I’ve organized events for a small group of high net worth individuals. I’ve also organized numerous large scale events ( Bollywood events with about 7000+ attendees ).
  3. I’ve helped raise $5 million over a period of 20 years for the non-profit organizations that I’ve worked with.

I have experience in organizing events from scratch.
