Social media supported this strategy, in addition to a full toolkit of collateral (flyers, invitations, sponsorship packet, microsite)
RESULT: The Ping Pong Smackdown exceeded its fundraising goal of $650,000 and brought in 700 guests, many of whom engaged further with KIPP beyond the event.
COMMUNICATIONSCHALLENGE: Cover operating costs and volunteer staffing to bring a week of visibility events to the Grand Traverse area in support of the LGBTQ community.

RESULT: The organization is moving from a volunteer working board and building towards full-time staff so that events can happen year-round and reach further into Northern Michigan to serve more rural LGBTQ folks.
