In a typical year, 800 guests attend this annual fundraising gala at a grand downtown location. However, 2021 wasn’t a typical year. We switched our focus from décor and styling, food and beverage, entertainment and logistics to creating a virtual event in a very short timeframe.

Out of an abundance of caution and less than three weeks before the gala, the group decided to switch from in-person to a virtual format. We pivoted to help them deliver an event that combined engaging live segments with polished pre-recorded components. We also managed delivery of elegant gift boxes to sponsors and planned a micro-event for the presenters on-site.
