About Us

Donna and Rachel first met at the University of Puget Sound in 2003 where both majored in French. As friends and roommates, we enjoyed working together to plan fun, exciting events for the campus community, including weekly French conversation hours, international film nights, swing dances and more. The more we worked together, the more we realized that our unique combination of talents made us an incredible team. After graduation, we each pursued successful careers in the nonprofit sector where we have gained invaluable experience in a myriad of areas, including event planning. At this point in our careers, we're thrilled to move forward as partners to form Rosy Day Events. We can't wait to meet you, and to work together to create the event of your dreams!
