Event Success. Nothing Less.



Alicja Burek


Since early childhood Alicja developed a love for fashion, events and social functions, making clothes and organizing ‘’royal balls’’ for her Barbie dolls all the time. As a little girl growing up in a small town in Poland, Alicja always assured her mom that when she grew up, she would always visit and bring a new dress every time she came back home.

However, she did not peruse her vision and passion until she finished college and decided to do something different with her life. Beginning her modeling career in 2008 gave Alicja the exposure to various events, functions, fashion shows and she quickly realized the love of the social event atmosphere. The power and energy those gatherings gave her were nothing short of aspirational. 

Her first event was a fundraiser for her brother, who lost his house, belongings and business in a fire. The grief and hopelessness were unbearable.  She wanted to help but didn’t know how. 

Through shear ingenuity yet without much experience, she decided to organize a fundraiser fashion show, live auction and raffle in order to collect money for him and his wife.

The idea at first, for various reasons, did not have many supporters; however, she decided to do it anyways. It will remain a mystery how is it possible for one person to do so much, with so little, in such a short time.

The event was a great success!

She was able to raise $6,000.00 that evening. On that night, she realized that everything is possible if you believe in an ideal and work hard to achieve it. The feedback from attendees pushed her even harder to create more events. That day, Alicja recognized that events and public functions were her passion, her destiny and her life.

  • ...great personality, energy and passion for event planning. Her attention to detail, great ideas and “outside the box thinking” are incredible...They were excellent at assisting us in negotiating with vendors, getting sponsors and publicity for the event. They were also very diligent in keeping everyone on schedule, coordinating on timely delivery and setup at the venue. The event went smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I am going to use Alicja Events for any future event I am going to host.
