I am part of a team that is volunteering to raise two million dollars for a local food services agency that feeds the hungry to move to a larger facility

Successful major gifts director for a $4.2 million dollar Food Bank Warehouse campaign in Clark County..New building opened January 3,2012.

Our fairs and expositions customers enjoyed records this year hightlighted by the Clark County Fair seeing record sales, up by by 15 percent, over 1.5 million in food sales in ten days. The pricing was lowered by most stands, and yet sales were up..signage improvements, more stands taking credit cards and of course perfect weather too (cant take all of the credit).. Just a great example of how we have helped this event's food sales grow from less than one million dollarsto now over 1.5 million dollars.
