Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County wanted to hold a first-time golf outing fundraiser but their staff was already overworked doing their day-to-day jobs. As an added challenge, we needed to find a new outing location just three weeks before the event.


Joined By Purpose planned a well-coordinated and enjoyable golf outing for existing and new supporters of the organization. When the original location was no longer a viable option for the event, we made all the necessary changes to provide a great experience at this first-time golf outing. Joined By Purpose provided documented systems to create clear expectations for sponsors, volunteers, and golfers. The day went off without a hitch and golfers are already looking forward to next year’s golf outing!

"Working with Jessi at Joined By Purpose has been the best decision I've made since planning any event within my organization. Not only was Jessi easy to work with and available when I needed her, but her knowledge of my specific event surpassed my own. This was the first time we were hosting a golf outing. Jessi took the lead with many of the initiatives and made suggestions that I hadn't thought about.  Having Jessi allowed me to focus on the areas of the event where I was needed - finding large sponsors, building relationships, and freeing up my time to handle other aspects of my job that didn't pertain to this single event."
