Jill Dineen
Executive Director, Leap Arts in Education
“Simply the BEST! That is what comes to mind when I think about Gina Rosales Founder & Lead Event Producer at Make It Mariko Events. I worked directly with Gina for a huge fundraiser event for The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. She is so creative and inspirational. Gina was instrumental in making sure all event logistics were in place. She worked directly with the Twitter Events team to work on décor, timeline, load-in, load-out all event details. Gina was able to secure some huge talent for the event; Javier Ninja, Father of the Legendary House of Ninja, NYC and the LADIES OF ASIASF. Without Gina we would not have secured such big talent for the event. She worked directly with each performer and made an mind blowing run of show. Because of the amazing out of the box work Gina did for the event, it turned out to be our largest fundraiser in San Francisco for The Trevor Project. Raising over $52,000. Without a doubt, Gina is simply the BEST event planner and producer. When looking for an event planner, Gina is the number one person I would recommend. ALWAYS MAKE IT MARIKO!”
