Among Austin event planners, GoodBuzz Solutions had the delightful opportunity to plan the 2015 Ronald Reagan Gala – Austin’s conservative political event of the year.

We’re so grateful the Travis County Republican Party (TCRP) chose GoodBuzz for their premier event management. We’ve so enjoyed working on this fancy fundraiser the past eight weeks!

GoodBuzz selected the beautiful venue of the Austin Country Club, the catering menu for the VIP reception and three-course dinner, the decorations including red roses with white hydrangeas, the hiring of vendors, the establishment of ticket/table prices, timeline preparation and coordination with speakers. Also, GoodBuzz provided communications (emails, website, invites, posters, and programs) support to increase attendance, served as the point-of-contact for RSVPs, facilitated top donor sponsorship, managed day-of logistics, and distributed post-event appreciation and analyzation tools (guest survey, thank you notes, distribution of photos).

The political event honored Senator John Cornyn as well as hosted former Senator Phil Gramm and Michael Reagan, the son of the late President Ronald Reagan.

Travis County Republican Party Executive Director Olga Lasher said:

“I have worked with Lauren over the past year and she has been our event coordinator for two galas.  Our galas are our primary fundraising events so we need both the right guest speakers and the right guests to maximize our revenue.  The first gala had notable guest speakers and was packed.  We exceeded our fundraising goal.  On this second one she almost doubled the funds raised. I can attest that this is due to her superb ability to coordinate the many aspects of an event and her ability to work with others.  She is a great communicator and can deal with the diverse types of people. She is laser focused, dedicated, and determined to not just get the job done, but get it done right.  Finally, she is amazing at working through any issue or problem as they arise and resolving them quickly and efficiently.  I recommend GoodBuzz Solutions and look forward to Lauren coordinating our next event.”
