Dawn Bell

Dawn has worked in the nonprofit sector most of her professional life, where she developed a penchant for event planning.  From organizing the Sacramento Valley AIDS walk, to the elegant Oscar Night for Capital City AIDS Fund, to Walnut Creek and San Francisco’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society events, Dawn’s event planning and production experience has covered a wide array of types, venues, and designs. Dawn has also planned concerts, wine events, and most recently coordinated the Light The Night events in Santa Rosa.

Second only to her love of logistics, is fundraising where she believes creating relationships is the key component for successful partnerships.  Additionally, she believes that volunteering is the cornerstone of a strong community and volunteers regularly. Dawn earned her Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) certification in the 1990s as an active member of MPI (Meeting Planners International). And as a Sonoma County Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA), she is an avid proponent of all things Sonoma County.
