WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- For nonprofits such as United Way of Westchester and Putnam, planning an event can seem like a full-time job. Thanks to eventoozi, a Westchester-based panning tool, event organizer Shannon Cobb has been able to ensure her company's big nights are reaching their fullest potential.
"Having worked with eventoozi founder Holly Alexander before, we were excited to start using this platform when it launched in 2010," said Cobb, the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications for United Way of Westchester and Putnam "She was able to recognize how nonprofits schedule events on top of each other and wanted to create a place where everyone could post events. It always hurts the bottom line if you schedule your golf tournament on the same day as every other agency."
Utilizing dozens of digital events calendars, eventoozi helps nonprofits ensure every event they plan is publicized and scheduled on a conflict-free date. Gone are the days of planning a black tie function, only to find a larger organization has similar plans the same evening. For Shannon Cobb, eventoozi has become an irreplaceable part of their planning process.
According to Cobb, one of the benefits to working with eventoozi is that despite its global reach, it still remains company focused on communities. "Nonprofits have little to no marketing budgets, rely on volunteers for grassroots outreach and have staff with very limited time," said Cobb. "Holly and eventoozi know our barriers and have always been passionate about giving back to the community where they operate."
