Virtual Fundraising Gala for Emerge

Emerge New Mexico is changing the face of New Mexico politics by identifying, training, and encouraging women and non-binary individuals to run for office, get elected, and to seek higher office.

Event goals

  • Host a virtual fundraising gala

  • Create a special experience for VIPs and honor specific people in a large group

  • Ensure the event space was attractive, alluring, and engaging

Social hour experience

  • Created an event with Stages, Lounges, and a special VIP Lounge for a 150 person event

  • Recognized influential guests on the Main Stage and offered the ability for attendees to engage with each other in Lounges, replicating an in-person experience

  • Attendees each interacted with an average of 17 individuals during the networking portion of the event, discussing topics such as inspirational stories, favorite activities, and moments of joy

  • Attendance drew more participants than competing face-to-face events

Executive Director, Emerge New Mexico

People loved Social hour’s tables, which gave us the ability to easily name rooms, and quickly customize table topics, colors, and music. It helped our event to really replicate an in-person event experience. Having support and knowing Customer Service was there eliminated the stress of learning a new platform and made the experience that much better.
