Red And White Polka Dot Carpet - Lately I produced a red carpet event and thought I'd share a few of our charity fundraising thoughts with you. The event was for PCRM and like other red carpet events we produce, many hours of planning went into making this thriving nonprofit event. Among the primary nonprofit thoughts was to create this nonprofit event stand out from the audience since the charity was being released to a new audience on the West Coast. Therefore it was important for this particular red carpet event to adhere to the maximum level of professionalism concerning service, food, and design.
We achieved this by earning one of the greatest live TV show manufacturers who subsequently assembled a top-rated production team making the tv part of this event seamless. Other charity fundraising thoughts we used to keep our budget was supposed to create elegant floral arrangements at cost and recycle the glass containers. We even used one of the flowery designs from Budget Bash, which is to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like most of other red carpet events, we placed "asks" for patrons for our pub.
Because this is a vegan nonprofit event we had quite strict parameters in relation to exactly what drinks we could function but found generous patrons for our liquor, beer, and wine. Other patrons were kind enough to allow us "borrow" their recipes in which the caterer created our delicious three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit ideas comprised our live and silent auction which also adhered to a vegan code to ensure our patrons were not offended by that which we provided to help raise funds.
We utilized lighting efficiently as our main design element with this red carpet event as well as vegan-friendly drape and linen. We incorporated our design components in the save-the-date card as well as the invitation to create our classic yet elegant room décor. And what exactly are red carpet events without an after party? For this region of the event, we immediately transitioned our cocktail area into a nightclub with a white dance floor, white faux leather sofas, and a vegan dessert station.
I hope you picked up a few nonprofit tips for your next nonprofit event. I learned a great deal from producing this event especially concerning healthy eating habits and integrating facets of a vegetarian diet into my everyday routine. Until next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it simple, delicious, trendy, fun & economical to all!
