Hi, my name is Hallie. 

I am an event planning maven, mother of one and an all around great gal who lives in the Portland Metro area with my family.   For the last twelve years I have worked on a number of Portland area events including: The Mt. Hood Festival of Jazz, The Portland Rose Festival, The Tour of Remodeled Homes, The Ultimate Open House and The Street of Dreams.  I have also volunteered my time and talents to the Foundations associated with the events above and other non-profits that pricked my heart.

I started this site in June of 2010 because I LOVE EVENTS.  I have been lovingly referred to as an event junkie by my husband who does not understand my weird obsession with all things event related.  But seriously, I just could not hold it in any longer.  As I surf the web I see plenty of people giving event planning advice to professional event planners, but very few giving event planning advice to “Event Warriors” those everyday folks who have a passion for their child’s school, a local food bank or an orphanage overseas.  Event warriors want to help, but don’t know where to start.  So I am laying it all out there for you to see.

I hope the information provided is useful, interesting and informative.  I would love to hear from you so don’t hesitate to contact me at gideventguide at gmail dot com.
