From top to bottom, from staff to vendors and sub-contractors, Susan’s team is top-notch. They helped plan a policy summit for 200 people that was quite a success. They were happy to help wherever and whenever needed and could roll with the punches as they came, which they invariably did. Susan O’Neill & Associates is a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to work with them again no matter the event.

“The success of our annual Dinner Gala and Auction, and SOME’s Jr. Gala is directly attributed to the experienced, professional staff of Susan O’Neill & Associates. They plan, organize and implement all aspects of the SOME Gala with energy and creativity, and have been doing so for 22 years. Their efforts have resulted in events that are both great fun for the guests, and important fundraisers for SOME that benefit our programs for DC’s poor and homeless, and single adults. Additionally, Susan O’Neill & Associates has successfully communicated SOME’s mission to donors and volunteers while educating them about SOME’s work in the community. We deeply appreciate the work the firm has done to further SOME’s mission, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Susan and her team are extraordinary. I have worked with them dozens of times throughout the last ten years. I refer them to friends and associates without hesitation, they are real pros! Equally important is that they take on every project with great humor, collegiality, and a thorough knowledge of what is possible in Washington, and how to accomplish it.

Working with Susan O’Neill & Associates has been a blessing! The firm has managed several events for GE/NBC Universal and we were extremely pleased with the results. From beginning to end, Susan and her staff provided us with all we needed: budgets, event locations, caterers, printers, graphic designers, mailings, RSVP databases, timelines for the speakers, seating arrangements, press, photographers and a fantastic professional staff. At every event I know Susan and her staff will take care of everything so there is nothing left for me to worry about.
I cannot thank you and your colleagues, particularly Dani, enough for your tremendous help, support and guidance yesterday [at a reception honoring Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern]. Thank God you showed up at the room early and produced a wonderful, elegant event befitting the Taoiseach’s last visit to Washington. It is a pleasure to work with people so helpful, professional and understanding as your good selves and with a good sense of Irish craic thrown in! I am indebted and will long remember your support yesterday.
President & CEO, The Worldwide Ireland Funds
Many thanks for your excellent assistance and support during two recent events. I very much enjoyed being part of the American Ireland Fund National Gala at the International Trade Center, and I am also proud to have taken part in the dinner honoring Congressman Moakley at the Capitol Hyatt. I commend you for all you did to make these two events a great success.
Senator Edward M. Kennedy
Each [of three] event was a genuine success despite the large crowd and sometimes difficult logistics. Everything came off beautifully, from presentation to food to music. We literally put every detail into your hands and were rewarded with outstanding performances each year. Susan, your help was really invaluable. Many, many thanks.

I write on behalf of all of us at NACA, members and staff, to thank you and your associates for your help presenting our 5oth Anniversary celebration. We simply could not have done any of it without your help -invitations, history, reception, and everything that went along. It was particularly enjoyable to work with your team. They are cheerful, professional, and effective -a rare combination.Hope we have another event before our 100th. We’ll give you a call. All the best from George, Paul, me, and our seventeen member airlines.
