Meet Sandy Fasold, GACC Events Coordinator

The Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce welcomes Sandy Fasold, the new Events Consultant/Coordinator for mixers and live events.


Sandy brings with her more than 25 years of experience in event management and her portfolio includes projects as large as professional event coordination for 1,500 people to events like a 60th birthday party with 50 people attending.


“I’m looking forward to working with the chamber,” Sandy said.


Her experience includes working in the back-of-the-house, management services, and executing a large-scale executive events.


Originally from the Philadelphia suburbs, Sandy relocated 9 years ago to Brigantine where she founded her company Under the Sun Event Management & Concierge Services.


Her portfolio includes a lengthy list of nonprofit work including event coordinator for Dancing Under The Atlantic City Stars, a fundraiser and charity event to benefit the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.


“It was extremely successful, and that event had a lot of moving parts and people,” she said.


Fasold also has worked with several nonprofits like the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City, and Avanzar in Pleasantville (formerly the Women’s Center).


“It’s about giving back to the community and it’s the right thing to do,” she said.


For Fasold, the rich history of Atlantic City and Atlantic County helps promote every event.


“I think every city brings something different to the table,” she said. “Here, it’s history. Coming out of the post-pandemic, people are just starting to have events and one of the first events that came back were golf outings because you were outside and people were clamoring to get back some normal life.


Planning and coordinating events often mean being a step ahead of everyone else.


“I think it’s about finding out that particular vibe and about knowing what your client wants and helping to execute that vision,” Fasold said.


Fasold is excited about working with the GACC.


“When you work with a great team of people, it makes your job much easier,” she said.


She calls event day “game day” since it is the time when everything she’s organized comes into play.


“Putting on a good event relies on good communication and a good vision that everyone has bought into,” she said. “Events are game days for me. And what makes my day is seeing the client extremely happy at the end.”
