The Special Events Committee, formerly known as the Fundraising Committee, plans and produces activities contributing to the major fundraising for Or Chadash. The committee invents, plans, and executes two to four major annual activities for the members and guests of Or Chadash. Often non-members are invited to participate as well. The committee develops the venue, hires contractors (e.g. caterer), produces marketing and advertising, administrates the event, and handles the finance. Meetings are held two or three times a month during the event planning cycle.
