Doesnít everyone want their event to be the one that people remember? The atmosphere, the band, the food, the laughter, the butterflies in your belly. The one party guests didn't want to end. They talk about it for weeks and months, long after you've said goodnight, wrapped the leftovers, sent the thank-you's, and placed the pictures into albums. This is the type of event Mint wants to throw for you.
Mint is located in Bend, Oregon - a city known for it's scenic setting nestled in the mountains surrounded by world-class skiing and resort living. Mint was founded and created by Sara Goodrich and Kerry Bergler, who have united their distinctive strengths and individuality to create a business that will help cater to the most discerning clients with exquisite taste.

During her tenure Kerry took on additional opportunities to plan and orchestrate events ranging from holiday parties for over 300 employees to weekend management retreats which required accommodations, scheduling meetings and cocktail hours.
