In August we had the opportunity to host an event with The Wedding and Event Network to help raise funds for a local non profit Arizona Helping Hands. This event was a white party with a speakeasy theme and gave individuals in the event industry a space to network, connect, and collaborate before the busy fall wedding season began. They also had the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for the amazing giveaways, vote for the first annual Best Bite Competition, get a tattoo with Parties on Purpose, or laugh the night away in the Slow Motion Photo Booth.
The theme came together beautifully thanks to The Clayton the Park, Dei-Zinz Florals, and Glamour and Woods. The space was filled with white days beds, pillows, gorgeous stainless steel high tops with matching chairs, and tall silk trees potted in stainless steel containers. Guest were welcomed by Show Stoppers Entertainment golden champagne girl and were offered a glass of champagne or a glass of popcorn right when they came in. As they walked into the venue to partake in the best bites competition they were able to watch a show from various aerial artist on a suspended silk.
The raffle was filled with items such as a giant jenga, a hotel night stay, photography packages, and much more, (see list below.) All guest were given 1 ticket and were encouraged to buy more to help raise funds for Arizona Helping Hands.
The Slow Motion Photo Booth was something we could have stayed in all night! With all of the fun dance moves you want to see in slow-mo plus the props they brought, we just could not get enough and cried laughing at the end result!
With the talented creative team we put together, the entire night was amazing! We love to create a space where local business can meet, build relationships, and collaborate. With this all benefitting a local non-profit we couldn’t be more thrilled without it all turned out and are pleased that we raised $750 for Arizona Helping Hands.
