Pink Red Carpet 2015 - Lately I produced a red carpet event and thought I would share some of our charity fundraising thoughts with you. The occasion was for PCRM and also like other red carpet events we create, many hours of preparation 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 introduced to a new audience on the West Coast. Therefore it was important for this red carpet event to adhere to the highest level of professionalism in terms of food, service, and layout.
We accomplished this by bringing in one of the top live TV show manufacturers who subsequently constructed a top-rated production team making the television portion of this occasion seamless. Other charity fundraising thoughts we used to keep our budget was to create elegant floral structures at cost and recycle the glass containers. We even used among the flowery designs from Budget Bash, that is to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like most of other red carpet events, we placed "asks" for patrons for our pub.
Since this was a vegan nonprofit event we had quite strict parameters in terms of exactly what beverages we could function but found generous patrons for our spirits, beer, and wine. Other patrons were kind enough to allow us "borrow" their recipes in which the caterer generated our delicious three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit ideas included our live and silent auction that also adhered to a vegan code to ensure our patrons weren't offended from that which we offered to help raise funds.
We utilized light effectively as our main design element for this red carpet event as well as vegan-friendly drape and linen. We integrated our design components from the save-the-date card as well as the invitation to make our timeless yet elegant room décor. And what exactly are red carpet events with no after party? For this part of the occasion, we immediately transitioned our cocktail room to a nightclub with a white dance flooring, white faux leather sofas, and a vegan dessert channel.
I learned a great deal from producing this occasion particularly in terms of healthful eating habits and integrating facets of a vegan diet into my regular routine. Until the next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it simple, delicious, stylish, fun & economical to all!
