Susanna Hager Leads Charge of Revolutionary Fundraising Events

Share Article

Though fundraising activities tend to all be cut from the same cloth, fundraiser Susanna Hager is leading a campaign of truly inventive money- and awareness-raising events, starting with her work on behalf of the Palm Beach Zoo.

Fundraising events frequently come in similar packages, often consisting of elegant dinners or cocktail parties, but some fundraisers are starting to branch out into wilder, more adventurous territory. One of those fundraisers is Susanna Hager, who is leading a campaign of money- and awareness-raising events that are designed to be a little bit off from the traditional fundraising path.

A case in point is her recent “Do at the Zoo” outing. This event was held as 2011’s annual fundraising initiative for the Palm Beach Zoo, and, fittingly, the whole thing was just a little wild. Though Susanna Hager designed the event to be something of a typical fundraising dinner, she did throw in one very distinct touch of exotica—namely, the presence of black bears, jaguars, and other beautiful animals.

Of course, these animals weren’t given seats at anyone’s dinner table, but they were present, under the supervision of zookeepers, to greet the evening’s guests. Susanna Hager arranged for some more traditional surprises, as well, in the form of catered cuisine from local favorites including Bonefish Grill, Carrabba’s, and Outback Steakhouse.

The “Do at the Zoo” event is noteworthy for its place in a larger series of fundraising events coordinated by Susanna Hager, all designed to attract the attention of those who have grown weary of “fundraisers as usual.” Susanna Hager lends her creative fundraising vision to organizations all over Palm Beach, Florida and Cooperstown, New York.

Susanna Hager is a volunteer coordinator, board member, and fundraiser for various charitable organizations across the country. She supports not-for-profit groups in both New York and Florida, and has won acclaim for her unconventional approach to fundraising events.
