Memory Makers Event Planning is owned and managed by Glenna Tooman. Glenna is a graduate of Boise State University with a degree in entrepreneurial management and additional training in technical communication (aka business writing). She has been planning events in southwestern Idaho for over 30 years.
Glenna is an internationally recognized authority on wedding and event planning and etiquette. She is known for her common sense approach to event planning, helping clients create beautiful events while keeping their budgets in mind. She has been interviewed on television, radio and by newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times and the Northwest edition of the Wall Street Journal. She has also been interviewed for or written chapters in several books, both fiction and non-fiction. She is also a field editor for Taste of Home, a national cooking magazine.
In 2012, Glenna was named the Business Woman of the Year by the southern Idaho chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). The award was based partly on Memory Maker’s commitment to giving back to our community and world, particularly to organizations working to improve the lives of children and women.
In April 2007 Memory Makers began sponsoring a then five-year-old boy in Honduras through Compassion International. Glenna has traveled to Honduras twice to spend time with the adorable Nelson, his family, and other sponsored children.
In 2016 we began sponsoring another child, 14 year old Jose, who lives in Guatemala. Jose has a physical disability. Our support will enable him to receive the medical care he needs and be able to complete high school. We look forward to meeting him in the future.
