Hi, . What a month it's been. With each passing week, we've been so impressed with everyone's resilience, flexibility, and creativity to keep going. 

Our feature story this month highlights how three nonprofit organizations transformed in-person events into virtual fundraisers. The virtual auction demo we filmed in our studio may spark your own ideas for going online. And you can learn about the technology behind livestreaming in an interview with our team. If you are ready to go virtual, our virtual event packages include everything you need to livestream from our studio.

We know better days are coming. We look forward once again being part of your live events and collaborating on your videos. Please reach out anytime. We are here to help you today, tomorrow, and well into the future.

Going virtual?

Our amazing nonprofit clients and partners are livestreaming and going virtual. They are also sharing resources and advice to keep fundraising.

Virtual Auction Demo

Filmed in our studio, this video demonstrates how elements of a gala can be brought into a livestreaming format. Live hosts, slides, video, auction, special appeal, and entertainment can be seamlessly incorporated.
