A soaring success for Fish & Wildlife

For the second year in a row, Washington DC-based National Fish & Wildlife Foundation retained Elixir to design an invi­ta­tion, event mark and event col­lat­eral for its Bay Area fundraiser. Orchestrated by Stanlee Gatti, the event was held at Crissy Field on March 23rd. Falcon pho­tog­raphy was gen­er­ously donated by Andrew Zuckerman.

NFWF was estab­lished by Congress in 1984 to pre­serve and restore our nation’s native wildlife species and habi­tats. The Foundation directs public con­ser­va­tion dol­lars to the most pressing envi­ron­mental needs and matches those funds with pri­vate con­tri­bu­tions. Since its incep­tion, NFWF has awarded over 10,800 grants to more than 3,700 orga­ni­za­tions in the US and abroad and lever­aged — with its part­ners — more than $635 mil­lion into over $1.5 bil­lion for conservation.

Fish & Wildlife makes a grand splash!

The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation’s recent fundraiser caught the fancy of a full house of gen­erous patrons. Elixir cre­ated the invi­ta­tions and event col­lat­eral for Celebrating the Great Outdoors, NFWF’s second annual fundraising event in San Francisco. We are delighted to learn from Michelle Houston, Director of Special Events, that NFWF received “rave reviews on the invi­ta­tion and the pro­gram — from all over the country.”

Focus on the Tipping Point

Elixir is hon­ored to be working with the Tipping Point and Stanlee Gatti on mate­rials for the Tipping Point’s third annual ben­efit dinner and auc­tion May 7. The non-profit, ded­i­cated to “making poverty pre­ventable, not inevitable,” pro­vides grants and man­age­ment exper­tise to orga­ni­za­tions throughout the Bay Area.

The Tipping Point Board of Directors under­writes 100% of fundraising and oper­ating costs. This means that every penny raised at the 2009 Benefit will go directly to the best poverty-fighting pro­grams in our com­mu­nity. For ticket details, click here. The upbeat goes on…

Celebrating the Great Outdoors
