Basically a formula that will run down the entire column and do the needful...

Put this in cell F10 and copy down:

[F10]=IF(\$C10<>\$C11,SUMIF(\$C\$10:\$C\$16,\$C10,\$E\$10:\$E\$16),"")

See attached,

PS - you can also use the Data-Subtotal feature by selecting the range, select the DATA ribbon, then Subtotal.  The defaults from there would sum up based on the first column (re: occassion).

Its hard to "undo" once you've done it, but it gives you the subtotals, and the ability to group down to just the subtotals and see the grand total.

Here's a tutorial on the subject:

See attached output from that approach.

I would also check the use of pivot tables. Excel 2010 (not sure about 2007) have this feature called "slicers" that come in very handy also.
