Red Carpet Fashion Show 2015 - Recently I made 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 produce, many hours of preparation went into making this thriving nonprofit event. One of the primary nonprofit thoughts was to make this nonprofit event stick out from the crowd since the charity was being introduced to a new audience on the West Coast. Thus it was essential for this red carpet event to adhere to the maximum level of professionalism in terms of service, food, and design.
We achieved this by earning one of the top live TV show producers who in turn constructed a top-rated manufacturing 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 structures at price and recycle the glass containers. We even used among those floral designs from Budget Bash, which will be to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like all other red carpet events, we placed "asks" for patrons for our pub.
Since this is a vegan nonprofit event we had quite strict parameters in terms of exactly what drinks we could serve but found generous patrons for our liquor, beer, and wine. Other patrons were kind enough to let us "borrow" their recipes in which the caterer generated our tasty three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit notions included our silent and live auction which also adhered to a vegan code to make sure our patrons weren't offended by what we offered to help raise capital.
We utilized light effectively as our main design component for 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 timeless 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 room to a nightclub with a white dance floor, white faux leather sofas, and a vegan dessert channel.
I hope you picked up a couple of nonprofit ideas for your next nonprofit event. I learned a lot from making this event particularly in terms of healthy eating habits and incorporating facets of a vegetarian diet into my everyday routine. Until next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it easy, delicious, trendy, fun & economical whatsoever!
