Going Virtual

A success story from one of kansas city’s biggest fundraising events

June 10, 2020

Angie Blumel, President/CEO, Jackson County CASA

Angie Blumel is the president and CEO of Jackson County CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates). She’s passionately committed to providing a safe, caring and healing environment for child victims of abuse and neglect. 

Angie is a long-standing volunteer and board member of a community-based Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner program serving the greater Kansas City metropolitan area called Collection of Victim Evidence Regarding Sexual Assault (COVERSA).

Highlights from our conversation with Angie:

  • Be prepared to discard tradition and embrace the new, different and exciting.

  • Gather ideas, consensus and buy-in from those who loyally support your event. The best ideas came from our donors and event volunteers!

  • We learned a virtual event doesn’t have to be fancy, expensive or overly produced. Your dedicated supporters are all about the mission, not the event.
