Our Committee

Crystal Umfress

Co-Chair

Sponsorship Development, Marketing, Campaign Event Management

Over the last ten years I've been heavily involved with many charitable community campaigns in Columbia including the Aselsi's Guatemala Project, Tigers on the Prowl, Primrose Hill Teen Challenge, and Prim Goods as well as local political races.

 

In 2016, I turned my passion for events, marketing, and fundraising into Charitable Solutions Inc. to continue to help charities reach their fullest potential through capacity building projects. I am very encouraged by volunteers who have a desire to serve and be a blessing to nonprofit organizations in need.

 

I stand firm with "I'm third", putting God first, thinking of others next, and myself third! Through honoring our talents and gifts and working to improve and use them in a way that brings honor to God and our life we will positively impact those around us.

 

I'm proud and excited to watch Serve It Up CoMo grow into an event with a truly lasting impact on our community.

Columbia has become my home these last five years, and has truly impressed me with its culture and feeling of community, so I'm very excited to be introducing something brand new to town.

 

Before I was part of the development of Serve It Up, I interned running social media and marketing for Prim Goods (a non-profit enterprise for women recovering from drug and alcohol abuse), as well as interning for political campaigns. I strive for a genuine connection with any audience to send an impactful message.

 

In 2016 I completed my Business-Marketing Bachelors Degree at Mizzou, and I could not be putting my talents into anything more worthwhile than a campaign like Serve It Up CoMo. I am so passionate about raising awareness for ongoing issues affecting the community, and meeting our fundraising goals means positive life changes for hundreds of our neighbors.

 

I can't wait to get our first year in full swing and bring everyone together over great food to do some good.

Hello! My name is Caylee Chambers. I graduated from the University of Missouri in 2015 with a degree in Hospitality Management and I now live in Richardson, Texas. I currently work as an Administrative Assistant and Bookkeeper at a small CPA firm in Dallas. I have a passion for service, event planning, and graphic design and I love using my skills to help others excel. During the four short years I lived in Missouri, I fell in love with the Columbia community and culture. I am so excited to have the opportunity to continue serving the community I consider my second home through Serve It Up CoMo.

I've lived in the Columbia area for ten years with my family and have grown to love my home and community. Whether it's helping a couple plan their big day or planning the perfect energetic business seminar, I love any and all events and get excited about organizing all of the small details. I had no idea my passion for event planning would turn into a viable business, but now I am the proud owner of Bhive Events LLC. I believe it is up to each of us to not waste our God given talents, and I look forward to putting mine towards serving our community. Serve It Up CoMo is going to be an impactful campaign that will do just that.
