Red Carpet Sweet 16 Theme - 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, lots of hours of planning went into making this thriving charitable event. Among the primary nonprofit thoughts was to create 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 design.
We accomplished this by earning one of the top live TV show producers who subsequently assembled a top-rated production team making the television portion of this event smooth. 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 among the floral designs out of Budget Bash, that is to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like all other red carpet events, we put "asks" for patrons for our bar.
Because this was a vegan nonprofit event we had very strict parameters in relation to what beverages we could function but discovered generous patrons for our liquor, beer, and wine. Other patrons were kind enough to allow us "borrow" their recipes in which the caterer generated our tasty three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit ideas comprised our live and silent auction that also adhered to a vegan code to make sure our patrons weren't offended from that which we offered to help raise capital.
We utilized lighting efficiently as our main design component with this red carpet event in addition to vegan-friendly drape and linen. We incorporated our design components in the save-the-date card in addition to the invitation to create our classic yet elegant room décor. And what are red carpet events without an after party? For this part of the event, we immediately transitioned our cocktail room into a nightclub with a white dance flooring, white faux leather sofas, and a vegan dessert channel.
I learned a great deal from producing this event especially concerning healthy eating habits and incorporating facets of a vegan diet into my regular routine.
