"Working with DNB Events was a great opportunity for our
organization...I would not hesitate to recommend DNB Events
to other corporations." -Laura Lella-Smith, Director of Operations,
Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County
"Working with Donna was a dream! She was always one step ahead, always accomplished what she said she would and knew exactly how to make the client happy. I look forward to doing many events with her. DNB Events--a top notch company that will always go the extra mile! -Hollie Howard, Actress
"Being in the restaurant business for 46 years I have had to change and come up with new concepts to stay ahead of more and more competition. I had dozens of ideas for concepts and promotions but a single phrase came into my head …“The greatest ideas are worthless unless acted upon” and from a book of motivational quotes, “Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who implement them are priceless.”
With the demands of running Danny’s Steakhouse and Sushi I needed someone to implement and put the ideas I had in play, someone that had a lot more patience and expertise then me. Then I met Donna Beriont, an event planner and promoter at my Navesink Business Networking Group. We started talking and I hired her to put my ideas into effect. Best move I ever made!! Within two meetings we had over ten ideas and promotions we wanted to start. We started with three and within 2 weeks we launched “Mad Men” Lunch campaign with a photo shoot, a family night and a fundraising campaign for schools based on dining at Danny’s. Without Donna I would never have gotten them off the ground! Donna has done an excellent job organizing our promotions! Donna is priceless!"
-Danny Murphy, Danny’s Steakhouse and Sushi
"Our 30th Anniversary party, “Denim and Pearls” was more than we ever dreamed thanks to Donna’s leadership, committee, and extraordinary organizing skills. The event was flawless, and exceeded our fundraising expectations. Her vision for the venue, flowers, music, food, and silent action were individually perfect--but the synergy of them together made for a magical night. The sold-out event still has people talking; it is one for our record books and will always be remembered with joy." -Cindy Zipf, Clean Ocean Action
"I was planning my wedding reception for December after a summer destination wedding. I only had 8 weeks and knew I needed help. After my first meeting with Donna, I knew she was the right person. A beach girl like me, she is smart, fun, and super organized. She got to know my husband and I and what our vision was for the party and then told me to relax and let her handle it. I'm not good at giving up control but I felt so comfortable with her, I did just that. I put my trust in her and she did an absolutely incredible job. She transformed the Knights of Columbus Hall into the shore house I wanted. From surfboards in the entry way, to amazing catering with a seafood buffet and beach bucket desserts to fantastic bartenders, a great photographer, and super friendly servers--everything was just perfect."
-Dorothy Fadell Ferlanti, Pinots Palett
"I got to know Donna from a series of events we hosted at Windows on the Water. We were proud to support raising money for the re-opening of the Dive! Coastal Bar and Food Joint and the 30th Anniversary for Clean Ocean Action. She was responsible for arranging the evening’s events and was a great partner. She was cheerful, organized and professional!" -Larry Meluso, Catering Director Windows on the Water
“In a word, Donna is ‘extraordinary’! We have worked with Donna on several events over the years with the last event being even more successful than the one before. Donna is always able to bring fresh new ideas for our event, she is creative, hard-working, pays attention to detail, pleasant to work with, and always helping to expand our vision as the event program evolves. Her circle of friends and contacts is impressive and as she engages her contacts, the magic starts to happen. In addition to all that, she is compassionate and community minded. She understands our mission and as she helps to coordinate our event I am always confident that she is a positive and trusted ambassador for Habitat throughout the community. DNB Events is definitely a notch above other event planning companies!”
-Raymond J. Gabler, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County
