3. Can you tell us a little about your company's background?
Our founder, Addie Graham-Kramer, has always had a passion for parties. She grew up having fun birthday parties that her mother planned. When she was 12 years old, she even hosted her own public party at the City Hall. She charged a small fee for people to attend to help cover the costs of the professional DJ, food and for the venue. Nearly 75 people attended the party, and it was a hit! Throughout her personal life, she always had fun throwing casual parties, birthday celebrations and one was even featured in a local magazine before she had even considered opening her own company. Then over the years in her professional career, she helped to plan or led the coordination of very large-scale events both in the corporate and non-profit sectors in four different states. After doing research on the possibilities and the missing link in the market for a corporate and non-profit event planner in the market that also has a sweet spot for social celebrations, Addie and her husband, Drew, founded The Event Company in October 2013.

Our primary goal is to hear our client’s dreams of what their event looks like, what they
