“For the past 12 years, I have had the pleasure and the privilege to work closely with Ellie Francisco on Citizens for Animal Protection’s major annual fundraiser, the Celebrity Paws Gala.

Ellie is professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable, energetic and delightful to work with – any time, any place, anywhere! In the opinion of all of us at Citizens for Animal Protection, she is a great asset to our organization.”

“Ellie’s events have a certain stamp that makes them stand out as unique and special. With francisco+co, there are never any surprises. Ellie is incredibly smart and organized and no one follows up like she does. No stone is left unturned in making every event she is involved with outstanding. It has been my pleasure working with her these past years. I cannot imagine doing any event without Ellie Francisco and her team.

She never leaves a stone unturned, and she provides an amazing level of attention to detail. I have seen her make the events she produces better year over year.”
