“The Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce held it’s first Forks & Corks Gala in October last year, a black tie event with a silent and live auction benefitting the Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Fund. Without the help of Tara who served on the gala committee who kept me together it would not have gone over so smoothly and been such a success! She had an answer to every problem that came up. She is extremely reliable and never panics. If you have an event and you need someone with experience you can trust, call Tara! I highly recommend her!” – Fundraising Gala, Verona P., Hoover Chamber of Commerce

“Tara and her staff helped me plan a Surprise 40th Birthday for my wife. I was extremely nervous about doing it and Tara walked me through the entire process from start to finish. Her ideas about what to have at the party, decorations and all the little details were a breath of fresh air! She made things extremely simple for me while making the party a memory that my wife will never forget! I cannot say enough about how much effort and care she put into each step of the process. It exceeded my expectations on every level. If you’re a guy that wants to have an amazing party for that special someone call her! She’ll make sure it’s done right without the stress. Thank you again Tara!” – Surprise 40th Cocktail Party, Matt R., Happy Husband

“You did a fantastic job with the dinner as well as the tailgate. I hope to work with you in the future.” – Fundraising Dinner & Tailgate Concert,  Director of Board of Directors with Alabama Institute of Medicine

“I originally met Tara when I volunteered for the Region 14 PMI event. My first impression of her was Wow! She never gets stressed. As anyone planning an event knows, the kick off can be stressful. You know that old saying “Like a Duck in Water”. That’s Tara. She can work under some really strenuous circumstances yet she maintains a calm about her that is soothing to everyone around her. A year later I volunteered to be on her Symposium Committee. During this time I had even more of an opportunity to get to know Tara Vice and Any Reason to Plan. Tara can decorate some of the most homely of locations into a beautiful venue. What’s even more impressive is she can do this with a small budget. After volunteering with Tara for a few years I knew Any Reason to Plan would be a perfect fit to help with the PMI Symposium. We had a limited budget. She had several connections in the area and was able to negotiate great prices. I highly recommend Any Reason to Plan for many reasons. Just to list a few: budget oriented, capable, connected, accommodating, flexible, and charming.” – Non-Profit Conference,  Director of Project Services, Logista & VP Special Projects with PMI Birmingham

“Tara Vice and Any Reason to Plan taught me the value of hiring an event planner in May 2012. As a candidate for public office in Hoover, Alabama, my campaign team hosted a kickoff party and fundraiser on May 12. After calling Tara to consult on some quick questions and advice, it quickly became clear to me her level of passion and expertise in the area of event planning and she was immediately hired. Looking back at the event, I know I could not have done it without her. The event was spectacular, and Tara and her team worked tirelessly before, during, and after the party to ensure everything ran perfectly. Their attention to detail and meticulous planning for even the unforeseen circumstances (weather!) made my political event one that people will remember for years to come. Moreover, the value added service they offer set them apart in their field. I will be forever grateful for the job Any Reason to Plan did for me, and they will be my event planners for years to come.” –  Political Fundraising Party,  City Councilman & Operations Manager at BCBSAL

“Great planner, every detail is seen to. No worries about anything. She has excellent suggestions and gets the job done.” – President of Georgia Kiwanis

Happy Bride

“I first worked with Tara through the UAB Cancer Care Network when she planned, coordinated, and executed the Cancer Care Network Annual Meeting in Sandestin. Her work was so thoroughly planned and carried out down to every last detail that I knew she would be the perfect person to help coordinate our wedding. As expected, Tara made our wedding flow like a well-oiled machine. She was punctual and completely accommodating for every planning meeting, and on both the rehearsal and wedding days she ensured that every detail was perfect and everything flowed seamlessly. She even ran several very important last minute errands for us so that we didn’t have to spend that time away from our family and friends on the day before our wedding. She is timely, accessible, creative, accommodating, and wonderful to work with all around. She is an expert planner and produced perfect results! We would choose her again in a heartbeat. Many thanks to Tara for making our wedding so wonderful!” –  Happy Bride, Mountain Brook, AL

“Thank you so much for everything! You think of all the details that make life easier, and made this conference a success! I’m so grateful and look forward to doing this again next year.” – Annual Cancer Care Network Conference,  Business Manager of UAB Cancer Care Network

“We hired Tara to help us plan and host our first client conference and symposium. She did an excellent job of managing the venue, food selection, gust lists, online registration, and many other details of the event. She also attended the event and managed all the details during the event, which was especially helpful. Being our first event, I was nervous about how it would all come together… Tara made the event tremendously successful! The feedback from our clients was outstanding! She also saved us dollars on our food menu, room planning, and contract terms, allowing us to come in under budget. Tara is very easy to work with and is clearly an expert in event planning and management. She is definately worth the investment!” – Annual Cancer Care Network Conference, Director of UAB Cancer Care Network

“Tara is a very detailed oriented and energetic leader. She was able to pull together a conference for 80 people from around the region in a short time. The conference was a great success. I enjoyed working with Tara and look forward to working with her in the future.” – Project Management Institute Region 14 Leadership Conference, President of PMI Birmingham

“Tara Vice and her company, Any Reason to Plan, were an incredible asset to our staff and church for our CD Release Party and Concert at the Helena Amphitheater. They walked with us through the whole planning process–and they managed the event the day of. We found Tara and her staff to be upbeat and delightful to work with! No doubt our event wouldn’t have been the tremendous success it was had it not been for Tara and Any Reason to Plan. They were creative and proactive. They were careful to check with us on any significant decisions and give us weekly updates on their progress. And they made sure we didn’t get bogged down in small details. Their planning experience, organizational skills and attention to detail are amazing. What makes Tara and her company so unique, however, is the heart and spirit behind their work. They clearly love helping people, and they love what they do. Looking for someone to help plan your next event? Need to “turn it over”  to someone you can really trust? I heartily recommend Tara Vice and Any Reason to Plan.” – CD Release/Tornado Relief Concert, Worship Pastor at The Station Church
