Eliza is one of the super intelligent and giving gals who founded Get Hitched Give Hope. She has been deeply involved from the beginning of this amazing adventure, and this year she has a truly unique roll!
She is our Minister of Fun, which, in reality is more for us team members than anything!
You see, there are thirty or so of us who trek along juggling our own businesses, our families, and our responsibilities to Get Hitched Give Hope. There are A LOT of things that go together to make this event successful each year, and it can start to feel like a circus at times! So, this year, we have Eliza help organize fun nights that the team members can get together and hangout. For no other reason than to relax and enjoy each other without having to frame it around work!
We’ve had game nights, and bowling nights and bbqs and the like and it is one of the perks that makes all of us LOVE to volunteer our time to this organization.
So, thanks Eliza, for helping keep the fun in the mix with all the planning!photo credit : La Luz Photography Interested in just what makes Eliza tick? Check out our team interview below! What do you do for GHGH and how long have you been involved? I’ve been with GHGH from the very start–I was one of the original founders! This year I have the incredibly awesome role of Community Director, aka Minister of FUN! I’m here to set up rad social events and volunteer opportunities for the GHGH team so we can enjoy each other’s company and chillax together.
What brought you to GHGH? Tuesday Toasts brought me to help start GHGH…we wanted to harness the power of the wedding industry for a good cause! What is your favorite part of your experience with GHGH?
Can I have two favorite parts? The first favorite part is the relationships I’ve developed with the other members of the GHGH team. It’s an incredibly hard-working, creative, and hilarious group of people and it’s been a privilege to work with everyone. The second favorite part is the Big Night…when we tally up the total funds raised and we meet–or beat!–our goal it makes me so proud of the work we do.
What is your favorite part of the wedding industry? My experience has been overwhelmingly positive!! I feel like it is such a close knit community and everyone is willing to help out, lend a hand and give advice.
