Event Planning

Job Shadowing:

Mary K. DiUbaldo  P‘2019, Director of Development, Moveable Feast (Location: Baltimore, MD)  Shadow Description: Non-profit management. I run the fundraising dept. for a non profit with a 4 million dollar budget. We deliver nutritionally tailored meals to individuals with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life threatening illnesses. We believe that Food=Medicine. We specifically work with those who do not have access,affordability or ability to prepare healthy meals. Local students are encouraged to attend, as this is best as a multiple day experience (at least 3 days). A public policy major or marketing or healthcare might find this experience interesting.

Marcy Di Blasio ‘1985, Assoc. Director of Development, Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice (Location: Marlton, NJ)  Shadow Description: Our office is a small yet mighty group of five Development professionals who raise over a million dollars each year to address costs to our patients and their families that are not covered by insurance. We conduct Annual, Planned, Major, and Corporate campaigns, concurrently as well as two large Special Events each year. We work cohesively as a team, and I think that a Gettysburg student could benefit a great deal from spending time in our presence, as well as that of the other staff members of Samaritan.
