INEZ WEINSTEIN SPECIAL EVENTS, INC. (IWSE) is a comprehensive Event Management and Production Company that provides total planning, and implementation of fundraising and special events. We are first and foremost fundraisers, and for the past 25 years, IWSE has produced almost 500 events and generated more than $300 million in revenue for a wide range of non-profit organizations in New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. Our clients include the corporate, cultural, educational, health, philanthropic and entertainment communities. In partnership with the client, we organize and produce each event to meet the needs and objectives of an organization and to build valuable support for the future. We are licensed and bonded by the Attorney General of New York and in all of the other markets we serve.
As a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, we are specialists in designing, marketing and directing fundraising campaigns from concept to completion. We perform all fundraising operations including identifying benefit leadership, structuring the benefit committees, researching and developing prospect lists, handling solicitation, daily record keeping and financial reporting, as well as negotiating contracts with outside vendors and suppliers to ensure the best financial results possible. We are particularly skilled in working with Boards of an organization to maximize Board connections and work effectively with Honorees, Co-Chairs and Benefit Committees to raise funds. Our professional expertise also includes the ability to produce successful Dinner and Souvenir Journals which can be an important ancillary revenue source for an event.
Whether you want to raise $500,000 or $5 million, IWSE can help you plan, strategize, implement and manage an outstanding and memorable event. The events we produce annually have raised between $1 million to $5.3 million dollars. These are: Denise Rich’s Angel Ball for the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, Petra Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund, Russell Simmons’ Art for Life, Susan & Tony Bennett’s Exploring the Arts, New York Woman's Foundation Fall Dinner, The Reporter Committee for Freedom of the Press and the L’Oréal Legends Gala for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary we are proud of our past successes and look forward to continuing our tradition of producing prestigious, financially successful and highly visible special events for well-known and respected clients.
