KLO is a trusted, engaged, and effective partner for many of our United Way endeavors.
When planning our 100th Anniversary Gala, there simply wasn't a better partner to attend to every detail with our team. Months later, donors and friends still comment on the experience as one of the best they've ever encountered. Kristine's team is comprised of high caliber professionals, ready to deliver on a moment's notice. We highly recommend this organization for your event planning needs.
United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley Marci Lesko | Executive Vice President
The best decision I ever made was hiring Kristine to help plan my organization's 50th Anniversary Gala fundraiser!
The goals were lofty - 400 guests, 40+ sponsors, 4 award winners, 2 speakers and celebrity entertainment. But Kristine was up for the challenge. The innovation, creativity and professionalism she and her team brought to the event was outstanding. They juggled budgets, logistics, changes and most importantly, personalities without missing a beat. I look forward to the next time I can work with this amazing crew!

Her expertise and personal investment make her a true partner for her clients.
I look at Kristine and her team as an extension of our NKF Serving Greater New York staff and am honored to have the privilege of working so closely with her. Her expertise and personal investment make her a true partner for her clients. I know I can count on Kristine and the KLO staff to bring innovative ideas, keep our goals at the forefront and most importantly handle our logistics flawlessly so I can focus on cultivating our donors.

I highly recommend using KLO Events LLC for any future events you may have.
We recently finished our 3rd Walk to Cure Arthritis in NYC with KLO this past May and we are beyond happy with the results. KLO ensures that pre-event we remain organized with our vendors and permits and during the event that everything runs seamless. One of the best reasons to hire KLO is that while working in Development at these large events it is very hard to set-up the logistics AND mingle with your donors. KLO takes care of all the logistics to make sure that we can thank our donors, sponsors and participants. The staff at KLO are all very experienced and professional. They offer a unique personalized service that is trusted and appreciated year after year.
Arthritis Foundation of New York City Dana Miele | Director of Development
The decision to have KLO-Events plan my launch event was an easy one.
KLO made sure every detail of the venue, decor, food, entertainment and drinks were perfect. Kristine focused on the audience and made the event meaningful for all. Since then, I've recommended Kristine and KLO-Events to several contacts and plan to use their planning services for all our future events.

Kristine's staff is, organized, cooperative, professional and hard working.
For the past ten years, KLO Events has helped our organization quadruple 'Walk' revenue and kept expenses down to ensure that the maximum amount goes to support the community. Kristine's staff is, organized, cooperative, professional and hard working. They've built a welcoming and comfortable environment for our walkers and a strong and productive partnership with our staff. I highly recommend them!

KLO events turned a concept into a magical first year fundraising event.
The second year, rather than just turning the crank and expecting similar results, Kristine and her staff stepped it up another notch! My event raised even more money and yielded greater attendance! It is an honor to have KLO Events tending to the logistics so that I can focus on enjoying the party. The collaboration and camaraderie make every event a success! I'm happy to have them on my team.

There are not enough positive things to say about Kristine Horner Ortiz and her KLO Events team.
They are wonderful to deal with on all levels. Her level of professionalism, coupled with a keen sense of humor and humility, is unparalleled. Kristine wants your event to be the best yet and something you and your guests will talk about and remember for a long time. She wants to create memories but also lasting special moments. They are the best at what they do. You will be privileged to call her a vendor and friend!
