At Amy Bloom Inc., we focus on making sure that “Success. In Any Event.” rings true for our clients. Here are a few examples of how the events and projects we produced were each a success, in the words of those we helped.

“I’ve attended many events that Amy has put on. She pays attention to detail, and has a huge network that she brings with her, both as attendees and sponsors,” said Paul Fairchild, the former chief development officer at Chicago’s Howard Brown Health Center. Fairchild hired Amy Bloom Inc. to organize events for Howard Brown. Those events included the popular Garden of EVE gala, which involves more than 26 restaurants and chefs, over a dozen artists and musicians, bartenders, DJs and attracts more than 600 attendees.
“I’ve been doing events for 20 years, and you don’t ever see an event where everything goes exactly according to plan. But if you’re working with Amy Bloom Inc., and something’s not going according to plan, you don’t ever know it. Amy stays very calm and just fixes it.
“She never gets rattled. She always looks like she’s having fun and, quite frankly, I think she is. Working with her is just a joy.”
“Amy came on board with us and stepped in as soon as she arrived,” said Cathy Seabaugh, the founder and executive director of A Sister’s Hope. Amy of Amy Bloom Inc. traveled to the Netherlands in 2009 to assist with the organization’s two-day, 60-kilometer walk to raise breast cancer awareness.
“We pulled Amy into every part of the project,” continued Seabaugh, who hired Amy to assist in the coordination of the walk in 2011. “She met the volunteers, got to know their faces and made herself available to help with every piece of the event.“
A Sister’s Hope 60K walk, founded in 2006, has involved as many as 645 participants annually in the Netherlands. And through its events there and in the U.S., the organization has raised $3.5 million to fund breast cancer research and improve diagnosis of the disease. Also in 2011, Amy traveled to the Netherlands with A Sister’s Hope to help coordinate the organization’s Pink Moon 8K Run & Walk.
“Amy organized our event for several years, and we had complete confidence in her ability to pull off everything,” said Professor Susan Hughes, co-director of the Center for Research on Health and Aging at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Hughes worked with Amy on the ”Get in SHAPE! Chicago Senior Health and Fitness Walk“ sponsored by SHAPE (Senior Health Alliance Promoting Exercise). The event annually drew more than 2,000 senior citizens from throughout the city and suburbs to Chicago’s lakefront for a three-mile walk and social event. And thanks to Amy’s efforts, each year it both went off without a hitch and put a spring in the step of everyone involved, according to Hughes.
“Amy is very organized and detail-oriented,” she said. “She was just a pleasure to work with and did a great job on everything.”
“Amy Bloom Inc. put on an event for me at an art gallery in Andersonville (Chicago) that provided me an opportunity to showcase myself as a financial advisor,“ said Jennifer des Groseilliers, complex director for Ameriprise Financial, who was looking to take her career to the next level through an intimate, classy and engaging event with about 40 attendees.
“Amy Bloom Inc. did an outstanding job working with people in the community and I was able to find some new clients,” des Groseilliers continued. “Amy is a great connector of people. She’s really good at promoting, marketing and showcasing events in a way that is really appealing to people. The event was a catalyst to get my name out into the community, and I also received several referrals from people who attended.”
“Amy of Amy Bloom Inc. is organized and detail-oriented,“ said Janice Kaufman, chief development officer at Jewish Vocational Service (JVS), for which Amy planned the organization’s 2010 “Strictly Business” networking event, attracting more than 400 people to the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
“Amy shares her opinion about the best ideas for an event or project and works with everyone to make sure it’s a success.”
