PEN Canada Benefit

Roy Thomson Hall, the renowned concert hall chosen for the benefit.

Client: PEN Canada (Toronto, Canada)

In 1999, Nensi led the organisation of PEN Canada’s annual benefit. This involved

  • translating the ideas of the benefit’s organisers into achievable plans and disseminating press and promotional materials about the upcoming event;
  • coordinating the efforts and needs of 150+ volunteers and staff across 14 committees, and managing the logistics for nearly 30 restaurants and wineries; and
  • providing logistical support for a 90-minute performance, an art installation, a food festival, a wine tasting and a silent auction.

Nensi’s adroit event management and quick problem solving on several fronts resulted in attendance of 1000+ guests and increased exposure for PEN Canada.
