WHAT YOU CAN DO
Host an Event
Besides sponsoring or contributing to one of our ongoing
projects, there are a multitude of other ways you can be involved
with GBF to assist the progression of our mission in Liberia! As a
student leader in your organization on campus, a high school
student, a fabulous working mom, or a fashionista in the nation’s
capital, GBF could use your help in raising funds for our various
projects. Want to do more than just contribute to a project? Why
don’t you host an event in your hometown?
Call up your most posh local diner or restaurant, the most chic bar
in your city, or the most fabulous location of them all – your home– and throw GBF a fundraising event with your personal twist! We
would love to see variety of cool people, like you, all over the
nation making a small difference by hosting themed events!

the challenge, download the “Host An Event Package” that will get
you started. Then, send Caroline Dennis, our In‐House Event Coordinator an email at CarolineD@gbomaibestmanfoundation.org about the details of your event and the invite and we’ll be sure to put it out there in the universe and cheer you on as the big night approaches via twitter!
