Karen Hester & Michael Barajas - Center for Legal InclusivenessAll Night, I kept hearing adjectives like “fresh,” “fun” and “different” used to describe everything from the theme, the decorations and the variety of features right down to the program and awards! – Mario Trimble, Kutak Rock

My nonprofit hired Alison Oyler-Mitsch/Fresh Events to plan our inaugural fundraising gala. To say I am pleased is an understatement. While I ccam to Alison with an idea, she created the vision and brought it to fruition – all under budget! I’ve received multiple accolades from board members and guests alike and I share the credit with Fresh Events.

“Alison’s 100% attention to my big vision”

When I held my first big two-day conference, I knew I needed an experienced event planner, and Alison was recommended to me. Choosing her turned out to be an excellent decision! I had no idea what to do, and Alison guided me through all the necessary stages, from negotiating and managing vendor contracts that protected my budget, through publicity, staffing and staff training, awesome planning, to the big event itself. Alison completely freed me up to focus on my on-stage performance, without having to worry about anything else. Alison’s 100% attention to my big vision, the minute details, and flawless execution meant that I was able to conduct a very profitable first live event, and there is no way it would have happened without her.  I am so grateful to her and will absolutely use her for the next one too! Alison – you rock!

“She (Alison) is without a doubt one of the hardest-working event planners on the planet…”

“Alison Oyler-Mitsch is one of the most experienced and organized planners we have had the pleasure to deal with. We met Alison during her tenure at Goodwill Industries of Denver, and were always impressed with her command of details, while having a great view of the overall event. She is without a doubt one of the hardest-working event planners on the planet, and handled the details a myriad of Goodwill events with absolute professionalism.

A great person and a dedicated and experienced planner. It really doesn’t get better than that.”
