Project Brief

As a nonprofit, Cara’s Annual Gala is one of its largest fundraising events. Due to the pandemic, Cara and Yakkety Yak worked together to turn a black-tie event into an engaging digital experience.

The Opportunity

Due to COVID-19, Cara’s Annual Gala needed to pivot and accommodate a virtual option. With their mission to help people find meaningful employment, it was more important than ever to keep the donations coming in so they could continue to launch new careers.


The Outcome

The Cara and Yakkety Yak team worked closely to design, develop and launch a website complete with inspiring videos, messaging and donation capabilities to help them reach their annual goals. We managed the project end-to-end so the team could focus on bringing in the donations.
