WHO WE ARE
Inspiring, Extraordinary, and Truly Unforgettable Events with a Purpose
Lorrie Carlson is the main event planner with Platinum Events, a division of First Impressions which has been
in operation since 2002 - nearly 17 years. For most of these years, Lorrie has been an active volunteer and has
served on a variety of boards and fundraising committees. Lorrie also has a Social Work degree and has worked
in a variety of challenging environments which allowed her to see the increasing demand for services in the
community. She felt the need to come up with an idea to help the nonprofits and charities, while also recognizing
the business people in our community who continue to make a difference by supporting these organizations.
The solution was to create an event company called Platinum Events - a fun way to provide necessary funding
to nonprofits and charities while also giving substantial recognition to those who provide the funds and support to
make these events a success.
