Dawn, a huge “Thank you” to you and your team. By all accounts the tournament was a success and exceeded our expectations. I know behind the scenes there were many last minute changes and challenges. You and your team ensured that our guests were unaware and not impacted by these hiccups.
I was very impressed with you and your teams organization and coordination skills, clearly not your first tournament. It was also impressive with the amount of clout you have with Mother Nature; what an absolutely beautiful day!!!!
Please pass along our appreciation to everyone involved that supported you in making our 50th Anniversary Golf Tournament a huge success.
Dawn Donahue gets things done at a standard that is seriously impressive – even by those with the same level of drive and determination. She knows how to connect the dots between sponsorship, marketing and logistics to create magical, seamless results.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dawn for more than three years, through her leadership as Scholarship Chair for the BC Hospitality Foundation. She was also one of the founding committee members of what has become a vital support system for people that work in our industry. While most people know her as a peerless event producer, I’ll share that she continually inspires me with her tireless work ethic and keen attention to detail. But perhaps more than that, what I value most about Dawn is the way in which she cares for people, in a real and honest way. On the occasions where I faced a challenge in my work and required her expertise, she always made time for me, no matter how busy she was. I will always be grateful for her patient guidance and her intelligent counsel.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dawn Donahue and Go Golf Events for more than 15 years and throughout that time Dawn and her team have been professional, organized and passionate about each and every event she has been involved with. From the smallest 50 person group to over 1000, Dawn gets the job done from beginning to end. Challenges, and there are many, never seem to faze her and solutions are just around the corner. Dawn has a great attitude and a smile on her face to greet each every person.

Dawn is a passionate, helpful, happy warrior for your organization and for your event. She meets you and your team and helps move you from good to great. She brings resources and guidance to the table but most importantly she brings a next level vision of what your organizations event participants experience can be. A pro bono analysis of your event and face time meetings with your team are examples of how Dawn interacts and gets to know you and your goals!
I knew within minutes of meeting Dawn, she would change how I accomplished my event goals.

“Go Golf Events stepped in and saved our event – an infusion of support, guidance, leadership, partnership, finances, resources and volunteers. Without them we would not have had an event, much less a successful event.”
Maria and Dawn created magic out of mist – a nonexistent budget for a fundraiser, and yet the Go Golf Team managed to create a gala dinner that successfully rivaled budgets of $100,000 plus. Their dedication and determination is a shining example to all of us and why we do what we do – help kids in times of need.
The best gala dinner we have ever seen – the partnerships you have created, the added value you brought to the event, amazing. how you created that event with so little budget – and had all sponsors and partners involved – the marks of a true professional.

“The 2009 West Coast Chocolate Festival was the best ever. Go Golf brought an amazing wealth of resources, partners, sponsors, and well trained, dedicated volunteers. Over 65 events well executed and profitable in 20 days. Incredible energy, leadership and guidance.”
“One of the best golf tournament planners I have ever met, world wide. We support over 3000 tournaments annually world wide. Dawn Donahue and Go Golf events lead the way in event planning, production, execution and attention to details. Actually, one of the best event producers and planners, regardless of event!”Gerry Lev
Awesome organizer, awesome day, awesome people, awesome pictures. Simply awesome! Thanks for everything Dawn!
Dawn is a go-getter. She can match everyone’s energy and is always looking to get your event ahead of the crowd. You can trust her experience and more importantly her instincts. Your golf event should run through her company. You’ll get results.Vernon Cheek
Go Golf events worked very well with a diverse group of volunteers – both on the planning committee and on the course on the day of the tournament. Their dedication, work ethics, leadership and training created a cohesive team; the team came together year after year – now in its thirteenth year, and over 200 volunteers at the event.Leaders Invitational
