STEP 4: CONFIRM
Follow up on your invitations and aim to have at least 8 guests who confirm your virtual table. Suggest that attendees join you in supporting the event and the UpGlo mission by:
1- Promoting the event and their upcoming attendance at your watch party using our social media toolkit (linked here).
2- Consider making a donation alongside other UpGlo supporters during the course of the virtual Gala on September 29th.
Ask your guest to register directly or register for them (email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help).
Get the word out!
Share stories of our amazing honorees and speakers on your social media to promote our gala.
