As the CEO of the Tualatin Chamber, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Madonna for the last year. She is a member of our Chamber and consummate volunteer. Madonna was instrumental in handling the logistics for our Annual Golf Tournament and Fund Raiser for the Tualatin High School Packbackers. She demonstrated professionalism at every step with a strong understanding in planning, operations, logistics and design in creating the perfect look and feel for the Golfers. Her energy, approachability, humor and respect for others was a positive contribution. I appreciate her sense of responsibility and encouragement to our volunteers and committee members. It is amazing skill. She understands the value of building relationships…..that people will do business with those that they know, like and trust. Madonna “sees the big picture” in issues and projects and exhibits strong leadership skills in quick analysis, efficient direction and effective presentation to motivate others.
It was a pleasure to have Madonna on our team and I’m confident to recommend her services to any person or organization that is looking for an “Extra Touch” to make their event stand out.

"Madonna goes above and beyond the efficiency checklist of a successful event. From the initial planning discussion, she knows the questions to ask to then translate every personalized detail into a flawless experience with class and unique flair."
"I have been to several events planned by Madonna Suever from Extra Touch Events... they have all been fabulous. With her attention to detail and presentation I would highly recommend her services for your next event. If you are looking for the best choose Extra Touch Events!"
I have been a professional event planner for 40 years, from gala dinner auctions to concert series to art festivals to golf tournaments, meeting planning, walks and political events. In my whole career, I have never met or worked with anyone better than Madonna Suever. Her event planning experience is beyond compare. This is why: Impeccable attention to details. Organizational skills are unmatched - amazing timelines, check lists, multi-tasking at its best. Extremely high level of creativity - her decorating skills and how to use color to make things blend and 'pop' could grace a cover of Architectural Digest or Vogue. Her culinary aptitude from cocktails to dessert will make any menu extra delicious and memorable. Madonna has set the bar high with her professionalism, her focus on all the tasks that need to be done prior to and day of an event and throughout the event, all with a true sense of calm that everything as planned will work without a hitch or glitch. Her respectful interaction with venues, vendors, deliveries, staff and volunteers is noteworthy. Knowledgeable not only of what the metro area has to offer but nationwide - whether your event is in downtown Portland, the wine country, the Gorge, Seattle, Denver, DC, Hawaii, New York City or even Bali, Madonna can handle it, no matter what the size of the event.
As a client of Madonna Suever and Extra Touch Events, there will be no worries or concerns and you will be a guest at your own event. You will be thrilled with the level of unexpected service and know that when Madonna plans your event, you are in the very best of hands. Madonna is super fun to work with and has a wonderful sense of humor and wit. Planning an event, large or small, with all the details, meetings and timelines, can seem tedious but with Madonna at the helm you can relax and enjoy the process.
