    About the Webinar

    Fundraising galas are like department stores, except they are only open for 6 hours every year.  During that time, your guests will participate to varying degrees in several different "departments" within your event. Roger will discuss how to forecast each of these departments, and give you historical benchmarks to use in forecasting your foundation's event.
