Michelle Durpetti Events is a full-service event and wedding planning firm in Chicago specializing in all aspects of management and production.



As Director of Development for a mid size performing arts organization, I am always interested in our bottom line with special events fundraising and maximize our small teams resources. MDE has what it takes to produce creative, engaging events within a conservative budget. They managed all of the event logistics, negotiated all vendor contracts, and were incredibly organized throughout the entire process. They were prepared at meetings, gave direct tasks to our team, and were meticulous in maintaining our budget. Thanks to MDE, our team was able to focus on fundraising, which resulted in increased net revenue from the prior year. MDE was worthy every penny (which was completely moderate and appropriate for the scope of work). 

We look forward to working with them again for next year’s Gala!
