Ulta Red Carpet Manicure Pro - Lately I produced a red carpet event and thought I would share some of our charity fundraising thoughts with you. The event was for PCRM and like other red carpet events we create, lots of hours of planning went into making this thriving nonprofit event. Among the primary nonprofit thoughts was to make this nonprofit event stand out from the crowd since the charity was being released to a new audience on the West Coast. Thus it was important for this red carpet event to adhere to the highest degree of professionalism concerning service, food, and layout.
We achieved this by bringing in one of the greatest live TV show manufacturers who in turn assembled a top-rated production team making the television part of this event seamless. Other charity fundraising thoughts we used to keep our funding was to create elegant floral structures at cost and recycle the glass containers. We even used one of those floral designs out of Budget Bash, which is to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like all other red carpet events, we placed "asks" for patrons for our bar.
Because this is a vegan nonprofit event we had very strict parameters in terms of 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 where the caterer generated our delicious three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit ideas included our silent and live auction which stuck to a vegan code to ensure our patrons weren't offended from what we provided to help raise funds.
We used light efficiently as our main design element for this red carpet event as well as vegan-friendly drape and linen. We integrated our design elements from the save-the-date card as well as the invitation to make our classic yet elegant room décor. And what are red carpet events with no after party? For this part of the event, we immediately transitioned our cocktail area to a nightclub with a white dance flooring, white faux leather sofas, and a vegan dessert station.
I hope you picked up a couple of nonprofit ideas for your next nonprofit event. I learned a great deal from making this event especially concerning healthy eating habits and integrating aspects of a vegetarian diet into my everyday routine.
