Local businessman, Darryl Toupkin, has announced the celebration of 25 years working in the local community and the 20th anniversary of his corporation FieldWorks Events and Marketing Inc.
Mr. Toupkin has transformed an Arizona State University degree in non-profit business management into a profitable event management company, and begun making a difference in the community, according to a press release.
Mr. Toupkin’s background in non-profit explains his passion for helping people. Throughout his career he has worked closely with a variety of charities and community groups to help them raise money and create successful fund-raising events. He personally has been one of the top fund-raisers for Multiple Sclerosis, Leukemia & Lymphoma (Team in Training) and the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the release stated. To date, Mr. Toupkin and his company have donated in excess of $250,000.
FieldWorks produces three health-related events — the 12k’s of Christmas, Kiss Me I’m Irish Run and the Redneck Run — each supporting local charities.
Each year, the 12k’s of Christmas event helps the animals at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control and supports the 20+ local animals rescue groups who participate in the event by making cash donations and providing an adoption venue at the event. Beneficiaries over the years have included Friends of Animal Care and Control, PACC 911 and Arizona Beagle Rescue. More than 40 different rescue groups have benefited from the event, the release stated.
“We believe that it is important to understand an event from the perspective of the organizer, the sponsor, and the media partner,” said Mr. Toupkin, president and founder of FieldWorks, in the release. “Our first hand knowledge of what it takes to fund, produce and promote an event helps us to develop sponsorship packages that leverage all facets of the event and the media, while maximizing value for both the sponsor and the event organizer.”
