About Us

If you ask most people, having fun and doing good for others are two, totally separate activities. In 2018, we set out to change that with WE Events.

What does that look like? For us it’s crafting for a cause at a kiddo’s birthday party or a donation drive for a girl’s night out. WE organize engaging events that raise awareness for local non-profit organizations.

Put it this way… as long as it promotes having fun AND doing good at the same time, we’re all about it and we hope you are too!

Check us out in Hey Mama’s Best event producer roundup!


 

If you are excited to see how WE Events can incorporate giving back into these social activities and events, get in touch with us and together WE can have an impact.
