As an event planner, Trudi Feinstein has collaborated with many widely recognized Boston area organizations and institutions.
We have secured a spectrum of authors such as Dr. Eli Newberger (The Men They Will Become), Dr. Carolyn Kaelin (Living Through Breast Cancer: What a Harvard Physician Wants you To Know), Dr. Edward Benz, Jr., Dr. Jon Derek Croteau (My Thinning Years) , Dr. David Brudnoy (Life is Not a Rehearsal) , Liz Murray (Breaking Night), Peggy Claude-Pierre (The Secret Language of Eating Disorders), and Wally Lamb (She’s Come Undone). We have also arranged commencement speakers such as Massachusetts First Ladies
Kitty Dukakis and Susan Weld.
We were responsible for securing entertainment personality Sara Edwards as event host on multiple occasions. Sara hosted three outstanding Women’s Cancers Luncheons for the Women’s Cancers Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. She also hosted the opening night performance of “Wit” starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Judith Light, which raised money for the David Brudnoy Fund For Aids Research at Massachusetts General Hospital, The Women’s Cancers Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute,
and the Women’s Care Fund at Fenway Community Health.
For two online auctions for the Home For Little Wanderers, we acquired a fabulous collection of auction items including highly sought-after tickets to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Regis and Kelly Show, the Colbert Report, the Sex and The City Hotspots Tour, and spring training
for the Boston Red Sox.
As full-service event coordinators, we arranged the 2013 Hispanic Month Celebration at The Whittier Street Health Center with hosting by Tim Estiloz, catering by El Centro, entertainment by SassEe Lady, and an appealing selection of raffle items, including a tour for 10 people at WCVB TV in Boston.

"I worked closely with Trudi Feinstein to coordinate a complex entertainment and cultural event for Boston's Hispanic community at an important neighborhood health facility for it's staff and clientele.
As a featured speaker invited to this event, I watched her coordinate many facets of the event including the scheduling of additional speakers and entertainment, media coverage, food and beverage catering for attendees, writing of publicity materials and more.
I was extremely impressed by Trudi Feinstein's attention to detail, openness to her client's needs and the ability to cope with changes to the planned agenda; and to turn those unexpected changes into a positive aspect of the overall event.
I look forward to more events planned by her and I am more than happy to lend my assistance to her endeavors in the future."
"Trudi, I was honored to work with you. Your dedication, passion and sincerity were remarkable. Without you, we would not have had the amazing food, our most popular raffle item and most of our silent auction items. You truly made this event fabulous!
Afterwards, we could not stop talking about how lucky we were to find you. Trudi, you are a true gem. Just a wonderful person. I will always be appreciative of everything that you did. Most importantly, the children at Kay Mackenson will always be thankful for your help."

I guarantee it will be a big success!"
