Impact Events LLC, founded in 2003, is a full-service event planning firm specializing in social occasions. Owner and event consultant Rhonda Rush has earned an impressive industry reputation from leading resorts, country clubs, venues and vendors. Rhonda has established herself as a leading wedding and event planner in Arizona. Her company mantra is simple and straight-forward – “always keep the client happy and the event on track.” Rhonda has an extensive public relations and event planning background. Upon graduating from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!), Rhonda moved to Los Angeles, CA where she spent 10 years working as a publicist in the entertainment industry. Her wide-range of clientele consisted of actors, producers, directors, production companies and studios. But it was the planning and executing of the film premieres, after-parties and charity galas that she enjoyed the most! Upon re-locating back to Phoenix, Rhonda found her niche in the hospitality industry and successfully launched Impact Events. And she has never looked back! http://impact-
