Doku has worked with non-profits as a marketer and fundraiser and has learned first-hand the difficulties non-profit endure. She realizes to hire professional fundraisers to raise funds needed to support charitable organizations is a difficult endeavor. With a desire to help others succeed she founded her own way to help her community locally and nationally. "Our goal is to help where help is undeniably needed so organizations can gain access to funds without the overhead. We realize the need that is out there and without the financial assistance people will be affected every day,” states Doku.
A “Red Tie” event is a gala or event held for charity causes. It generally does not involve the participants actually wearing red ties, though this occasionally happens. They are held around the country, whereas charity organizations are the beneficiary.
Non-profit organizations such as LADV with the help of others will be able to offer and support their mission. Red Tie DC, the brain child of Doku is just one of many ways she has given back to the community. She is always looking for new, creative ways to give back to the community. Any charity can be considered as a beneficiary by contacting EventStagers. Sponsor opportunities are also available.
