What happens when you put an event planner and a liquor control expert together on a webinar? You get great ideas on how to create fun, profitable events that also follow the law!

We start with a short overview on liquor law in Washington. Get a baseline of the rules so you know what great ideas are often not legal. Nonprofit event planner extraordinaire Gazala Uradnik then shares ways that she integrates alcohol into the events that she plans. Hear ideas, scenarios, and other opportunities that are fun and support your events’ financial goals. Liquor expert Beth Lehman responds to these ideas with the legal issues to pay attention to. She answers questions and guides you to next steps.
