Hollywood Red Carpet Fancy Dress - Lately I produced a red carpet event and thought I would share a few of our charity fundraising ideas with you. The event was for PCRM and also like other red carpet events we produce, lots of hours of preparation went into making this successful nonprofit event. One of the main nonprofit ideas was to create this nonprofit event stick out from the audience since the charity was being introduced to a new audience on the West Coast. Therefore it was important for this particular red carpet event to adhere to the maximum degree of professionalism concerning food, service, and layout.
We achieved this by bringing in one of the top live TV show manufacturers who subsequently assembled a top-rated manufacturing team making the television portion of this event seamless. Other charity fundraising ideas we used to maintain our funding was to create elegant floral arrangements at price and recycle the glass containers. We even used one of the flowery designs from Budget Bash, which will be to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like all other red carpet events, we placed "asks" for sponsors for our pub.
Since this was a vegan nonprofit event we had quite strict parameters in relation to what drinks we could function but discovered generous sponsors for our spirits, beer, and wine. Other sponsors were kind enough to let us "borrow" their recipes where the caterer created our tasty three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit ideas comprised our silent and live auction which also adhered to a vegan code to make sure our patrons weren't offended by that which we offered to help raise capital.
We used lighting effectively as our principal design component for this red carpet event in addition to vegan-friendly drape and linen. We integrated our design components in the save-the-date card in addition to the invitation to make our timeless yet elegant room décor. And what are red carpet events without an after party? For this region of the event, we immediately transitioned our cocktail area to a nightclub with a white dance floor, white faux leather couches, and a vegan dessert station.
I learned a great deal from making this event especially concerning healthy eating habits and integrating aspects of a vegan diet into my everyday routine. Until the next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it easy, delicious, stylish, fun & economical to all!
