The idea for this website happened because of a big and costly mistake.
A few years ago a large charitable organization put on a big fundraising event that failed miserably.
They had been holding this event for years and it was always a big success but not this time. As it turned out, the event was scheduled on a different Friday evening then the evening they normally held their fundraiser and no one checked to see if there were any other big events happening on the same evening.
As bad luck would have it, the people in charge of the fundraiser scheduled their function on the very same evening the local high school was holding their Father Daughter Dance.
If only the organizers of this fundraiser had one place to see all of the other events in their neighborhood, they would have never made this costly mistake by scheduling a fundraiser on the very same evening where most of the dad's in the community were out dancing with their daughters.
It was this failed event that was the seed that started the idea for an event database where anyone can quickly see all the events in their neighborhood.
Think of us as the modern day version of the colonial era Town Crier that was popular in the colonies over two hundred years ago. The Crierβs job was to call out the upcoming events for the people in the local towns. Fast forward a couple of hundred years and now it is our job to make sure that every event in your neighborhood is displayed on our network. From little league games to garage sales; we work hard to make sure that all of the events in your community are listed on our network.
If you have an event that you want your neighbors to know about then put your event on our network. It's easy to do and all are welcome to list their events on our network - FOR FREE.
Thank you,The Neighborhood Events Team
