I do marketing and recruiting for a private school. I'm also the events person. In the past I have worked on picnics for 40 - 100 and for 2,000, banquets for anywhere from 200 - 800, weddings, graduations, receptions, you name it.
But all of that success aside, I am freaking out right now.
I have an indoor winter carnival set to go in 13 hours. I pray to God people show up! My primary goal is for everyone to have a wonderful experience - the volunteers, the kids, the parents. Everyone. But for them to have a great time, they all need to show up. In droves.
