At the first session of the 2011 Shine the Light on Your Nonprofit seminar series, our expert panel discussed how to make events special. Our own Emily Kosa gave some great advice about keeping your branding consistent and infusing your organization’s DNA into every aspect of your event. At our seminar, we played off of the “shine the light” concept and made every centerpiece a different lantern. With a few dollars and a little creativity we were able to make each table have its own personality.
