Leave the Details To Us

Planning a successful fundraiser/nonprofit event is stressful enough without also having to worry about all the little details. Immediately after you reserve one of our venues for charity events in Northern Michigan you will be assigned a dedicated event manager. They will act as your liaison with the resorts to ensure your fundraiser event space has everything you could possibly need for the perfect affair. Both leading up to and during your event they will help you with: 

  • Event Setup and Cleanup
  • Signage
  • Audio Visual Setup
  • VIP Arrivals
  • Guest Speaker Needs
  • Guest Reservations and Check-ins
  • Arranging Activities and Tours
  • And pretty much everything else you need to transform your event into an unforgettable experience

Your event manager can even help you find and coordinate outside vendors for things that our fundraising locations do not provide like decorations, floral arrangements, and DJs. Whatever you need, Boyne’s charity event venue staff will be by your side to make it happen.
