"We are fortunate to have our own place," said Mrs. Bautista. "For others who must rent, factors to consider are appropriatemess of the venue, cost, location, amenities, and of course service."

"It's important also to have a plan and assign tasks, such as committees for larger events," added Mrs. Bautista. "Individual volunteers with a good track records make up our committees."

"Technical details are important," said Grace Valera, co-founder of the Migrant Heritage Council, a nonprofit organization based in Viirginia.

"We hold our annual People's Ball to raise funds to support Filipino migrants and issues affecting them. "The MHC averages 1,000 guests at its dinner dance fundraiser, there is little room for errors."

"To succeed in holding fundraising events of greater magnitudes, there should be transparency, clear cut objectives, and very good communication," Ms. Valera added.

Beth Marull, Vice President of the Philippine American Cultural Foundation of Florida (PACFF) believes in taking care of the details. "Key things to consider are objective, budget and outcome," said Beth Marull. "All three things should be relative to each other."

"It is likewise important to clearly articulate the objective of the event. If the objective is to raise funds then the net revenue must be positive and has to be worth the effort as delinated in the plan."

"Small things turnout to be bigger issues if not planned for," said Mrs. Marull. "It is crucial to have good communication with those involved to avoid glitches. However, expect the unexpected!"
