People Are Talking

Linda's dynamic, joyful, and articulate manner is a breath of fresh air to anyone who comes in contact with her.

Linda is a person of high integrity dedicated to providing personalized support. I would highly recommend her services."

"Linda can take a great concept and turn it into an even better reality. She will build a perfect event from a small idea and will cater to every detail, even the ones you won’t think about on your own."
Linda Richardson saved me!! Two months out from Chase Brexton’s signature fundraising event, we suffered a significant staffing change! A trusted colleague recommended I reach out to Linda. It was the best thing I could have ever done. After a brief meeting, Linda stepped in and became the leader of our event committee. From décor to food to volunteer responsibilities, she knew just what to do and who to call. She stayed within budget and managed our fantastic volunteer team.
The final product was the best event we’ve ever had! Thanks to Linda’s leadership that year, we had more attendees, raised more money, had a larger profit margin and were able to make a significant difference in the lives of our constituents.

We enjoyed working with Linda on two recent events. She has a flair for planning both small, intimate events and full-scale gala events. We appreciated her relationships with vendors and with the media. She made magic happen on more than one occasion!

Linda was absolutely amazing for us. I didn’t know the first thing about organizing a large fundraiser event, and she made the event a real success! With her connections, knowledge of the industry, and skilled negotiating tactics, our fundraiser event was a HUGE success. We had twice as many people attend than we planned, far more sponsors than we anticipated, and we raised tens of thousands of dollars more than our Board thought was possible! Plus, the savings she negotiated with each of our many vendors more than paid for her contract price – hiring her is a simple decision to save money and reduce the stress on your staff while ensuring that your event is better than you could have imagined.

I've been to several of Linda's events and they have all had a little something extra that is so unexpected you want to attend the next one, whether its the location, the entertainment, the food or decor she manages to create a unique unexpected twist on what could be an ordinary event. I used her for my 50th birthday party and friends still talk about how much fun they had almost a year later. I gave her my idea for what I wanted to do (a fun dance party) and she came up with some interesting ideas that made the dance party an OUTSTANDING event. The location, ambience, photographer, make-up artist, driver, food, even the card people signed was perfect.
"Working with Linda was an absolute pleasure. She is the consummate professional that pays close attention to the details. We worked together on the Fashion Block at Artscape several years in a row. There were lots of moving pieces including multiple vendors and fashion shows, plus tons of logistics involved in an all day outdoor event. Linda stayed on top of everything and did it all with a smile on her face. If you like working with a detailed oriented, quick witted, fun person with a delightful accent then call her now."

I've been working with Linda Richardson to co-produce concerts since 2010 and she's always been a great partner. We've held a number of Father's Day concerts throughout Baltimore as well as several private events and Linda has always been strong in working on details related to organizing and promoting the shows. The end results have always been a professional first-rate event.
During my tenure as President & CEO of AIDS Interfaith Residential Services and its subsidiary Empire Homes of Maryland, we created and executed Oscar Night Baltimore (ONB) for eleven years under Linda Richardson’s direction.
ONB is an officially sanctioned party authorized and approved by the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences. One non- profit in 48 cities is selected to host the “official” Oscar night party. AIRS/EHM was the only nonprofit in Maryland with such authorization.
As one can imagine, this honor did not come without many requirements and approvals of the Academy for partnership participants. Each year AIRS attracted more than 450 patrons and sponsors. These events raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the mission of the agency. Much of the repeat success of the ONB event must be credited to Linda, whose creativity, organizational skills, and attention to detail contributed greatly.
Her service, dedication and professionalism was astounding! Each year, she enthusiastically raised the bar for the organization with her creative concepts, exciting new venues and overall resourcefulness.
I would recommend her for any event big or small without reservation. I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again in my new capacity.

“Each time I preview the video of our 40th Anniversary events I smile. It was truly memorable and we couldn’t have done it without LCRJazzy Events. Linda Richardson and her team took us from concept to creation. As we prepare for our 50th, you can be assured that LCRJazzy events will be a line item in the event budget.”
