Do Good Events is a woman-owned, award-winning Event Planning company headquartered in Minneapolis, founded in 2012 by Kalsey Beach. Do Good Events was inspired by a love for events, being remarkable, and effectively bridging the gap in the market — the gap between providing good services, products, or experiences and also being and doing good for the community and marginalized people. This year, Do Good Events executed more than 150 events, (with a team of 5 full-time staff, 5 part-time staff and 50 part-time event specialists) assisted non-profit partners in raising almost $9 million at their fundraising events and launched an event staffing division.
Kalsey is a creative marketer, strong communicator, avid and innovative leader, and so much more! When not busy in the event scene, Kalsey enjoys spending time traveling, being active by running or Nordic skiing, exploring new Twin Cities restaurants and trying to keep up with her two-year-old! Kalsey serves on the Seven Dreams Foundation board and lives in Plymouth. Kalsey’s drive to be a better person is exuded in the impactful events and experiences of her personal and professional life, self-motivated energy and dedicated work ethic.
