“Loftin DME created an astonishing event for Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting of the Membership held at Trident Community College. Christy’s creativity and attention was incredible! She thought of details that greatly enhanced the event and we were blown away by the results. We had six hundred members in attendance and the event was a huge success and flowed effortlessly. It would not have been what it was without her.”

“We approached Christy to help us with the 2017 Fur Ball , our annual fundraiser,  a couple of months prior to the event after realizing we needed assistance to make it happen - and fast !  Christy quickly stepped up to the  " Herculean " task, assessed what needed to happen, organized our volunteers,  and put that plan into action.   She and Lindsay worked endlessly to make sure we were on point with all aspects of our event.  While we did have a few surprises, they handled them professionally and efficiently.  The end result produced a beautiful event that showed an increase in fundraising over last year.  We look forward to having Details Charleston produce our 40th Anniversary Gala in 2018! ”
