I have a tiny confession to make. Last year was the first time I actually had fun at my own garden party charity event. The previous years I was so preoccupied with what needed to be done during the course of the evening that I just couldn’t totally relax.
Enter Kelly Beach, Stiletto Sponsor, friend and event planner extraordinaire! Her presence last year made all the difference in the world. At one moment last year I remember thinking “Oh! Are all the candles lit?” As I looked around the yard filled with women, I smiled to see their images already beautifully softened by the magical glow of candlelight. When I thought “Oh! I wonder if the guys need anything at the drink tents?” I see Kelly walk by with supplies and glasses. So let me say this like only a woman would understand. Having Kelly handle your event is like wearing Spanxx. You never looked better! 🙂
Kelly is a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and a Certified Meeting Manager(CMM) with over 25 years of meeting, event, and convention experience in the corporate, association, and non-profit worlds. She currently operates independently as an industry consultant, is providing in-kind professional services for the Identity Crisis event for Breast Cancer awareness, and is a mentor for the Woman to Woman Mentoring Program of Frederick.
Most notably, she is the woman who will be serving as our guide for the first “Must Love Shoes Goes to Italy” women’s retreat this fall. She has a spectacular experience planned for us. I am so excited for the 13 women who will be making this maiden voyage with me. They will see a side of Italy you just can’t experience with most travel hosts.
Look for her the night of the party! She’ll be wearing her Emerald Green (May birthday) and making sure I have a fabulous time as the host!
