"Betty Goertzen was the architect of our signature annual fundraising event, The Renaissance Feast for Scholars. With her creative ideas and many contacts in the community, she helped us develop a tremendously successful event, both in terms of public relations and revenue generation. As we enter our fifth year of the event, we look forward to many more years of this great party!"

"On behalf of the Clovis Boys & Girls Club I would like to thank you for your hard work on our event. Our Black Tie and Boots Gala has quickly become a premier event and it raises enough money to support our club. Those accomplishments are in large part because of your experience and attention to detail on our event. I have always been impressed by the personal touches that you put into everything. Not only have enjoyed working with you, but you have become a good friend. We look forward to working with you well into the future. Thank you!"

"Betty made this event a success as she coached us on all aspects of event organizing and handling public relations details. She is an amazing and generous event coordinator. We received unprecedented television coverage due to her contacts and perseverance."

"I have had the opportunity to work with Betty Goertzen for the past four years on the Renaissance Feast for Scholars with State Center Community College District (Fresno City College). Because of Betty’s established relationships with the media, caterers and other vendors, they are receptive to her innovative ideas. Betty is efficient, hard working, creative, professional, and even comes in under budget! Our event would not have been as nearly as successful without her expertise. Betty is always a pleasure to work with and is worth every penny she earns."
Donna Dotson, Ren Feast Chair


"In January 2008 my brothers and I wanted to honor our father on his 80th birthday. We started out small, but soon our mother was involved and so on and so forth. Before I knew it we had entertainers, an MC. and a guest list that was much too large for our original small restaurant to accommodate. With only 10 days to plan a new event I contacted Betty with hopes she might have some ideas for me. Within 48 hours Betty had a menu that worked within our budget (which was embarrassingly small). I think it was within 24 hours of that when Betty had a location and took me to sign papers. I was done. Betty prepared all of the delicious food, provided table service and everything we could need. The event was classy, the food was fabulous. It worked with my budget. Betty is a class act and knows how to pull an event together. I don't recommend calling her with only a 10 day window, but if anybody can do it she can!!! THANK YOU BETTY." Love Julie


"I have known Betty Goertzen, better known as Betty G", since 2004. We have worked closely together on many projects. Most recently the 2nd annual Bachelors Ball. Her professionalism was evident from our first point of contact and never once wavered throughout the last four years. Betty is creative, organized and detail oriented. Her energy and enthusiasm for the events that she plans is evident in the excellent finished product. She has all sorts of great little secrets, ranging from how to save money here and there to lists of reasonable (and exceptional) vendors that are willing to work within a budget. She is so incredibly easy to work with, making each and every event unique and memorable."
Kim Fernandez, Manager, Print Shack of Fresno


"Congratulations!! I wish we had had more time to tell the audience at the Gala all the stuff you did for us! You truly went above and beyond and I learned so much from working with you, and we greatly appreciate everything you did for us. Thank you again for all you achieved for us and for the guidance you gave our little committee. The committee members agree that even red roses are not enough to express our appreciation."
Nancy Crossfield


"Betty Goertzen, of Develop, Design, Do It is one amazing woman! Her fundraising events for charity "get the job done", producing many dollars for the organization, and an event to remember" by the attendees. Betty leaves nothing to chance. She samples the taste and appearance of foods from the various caterers before selecting a menu; and the decorations, table settings, and entertainment always fit the occasion. Betty also handles private and political events. My comments are a result of knowing and working with Betty since the late 80's."
