Photography by CKris Photography
Our Charity Gala on the Backlot of Paramount Studios with a Carnival Theme raised over $1 Million. More importantly, donors loved it and returned the next year. Galas are a great way to give back to those who support you all year. We spoiled them with a rival of "The Color Purple" on the mainstage, Living Statue Red Carpet at the entrance, Bucket Drummers with Tap Dancers during Cocktails.....fun was everywhere.
Grand Red Carpet Dress Entrance
Our beautiful woman greeted guests at our event as they walked down her red carpet dress. Guests loved taking photographs with her.
Amazing drummers beat tribal rhythms on buckets.
Twin Tap Dancers
Dancing to the rhythm of the bucket brigade drummers. These amazing twin boys have been featured on major television commercials.
Decor and Entertainment all rolled into one. I love the statement of his costume.
For an extra fundraiser at the event, we had an ice bar with a booze luge built in. Guests could purchase this speciality drink, then hold their decorated glass to the luge. Later in the evening there was a prize raffle picking a number corresponding with the numbers on the glasses.
When we opened the doors to the dinner reception a sax player came onto a balcony and a Carnival Girl threw welcoming beads.
Fleur de Lis Napkin Rings
We used Fleur de Lis beaded necklaces made perfect napkin rings.
Carnival Masks on beds of lush red roses and beads. Every centerpiece was unique.
Red tables pre-set with our salad course.
