Our founder and president, Judy Anderson has been an event and charity auction manager in the government, private, and nonprofit sectors for more than twenty years. Power Productions was founded in 1992 for the purpose of managing events and auctions, and in 2004, a teaching component was added for those wanting to become event planners.

Anderson’s track record includes stints as director of the Sagebrush Classic, a high profile culinary and golf event in Bend, Oregon with 20 celebrity chefs and more than 1000 guests, and as director for the Off the Vine Wine Gala & Auction in Tyler, Texas. In 2006, she also managed Portland State University’s signature event, the Simon Benson Awards Dinner honoring philanthropy, featuring Her Majesty Queen Noor as keynote speaker.

During her tenure as director of the Classic Wines Auction, one of the top ten charity wine auctions in the United States, Anderson helped raise more than 6 million dollars, and in seven years as director of Beaverton Good Neighbor Days, built the festival into a major metropolitan event.

This varied experience provides unique insights into the funding and execution of events, as well as many entertaining stories to share in speaking engagements and training classes.

Judy holds a Certificate in Festival & Event Management from the University of Oregon and is the author of two reference books on events and fundraising auctions.


Power Productions has a team of associate contractors who provide special expertise or services for events we produce. We are incredibly grateful for their passion, creativity, and quality of service.

“Judy Anderson wrote the book on large scale event planning— literally. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with Judy on many events and at a number of venues. All of these events have been successful in their fundraising and flawless in their execution.”

"I wanted to thank you for participating in the "Best Practices in Nonprofit Special Events" panel. Your insights and experience added a lot and I especially liked the way you brought ethics into the discussion in a clear and specific way with examples of what, and what not to do. You did a wonderful job of getting the message across."
