Gala Committee Needs | Event Date: Saturday, May 20, 2017
Decorations Lead(s): We are looking for enthusiastic, event loving, individual(s) to help us with overseeing the decorations for the event and includes set-up the day before (5/19). Decorations can be as simple or elaborate as the Decoration Lead(s) wants. Decorations should follow the selected theme inspired by a 1920s speakeasy, and provide a special and memorable atmosphere for the Gala. Table centerpieces (20-24) are usually the main decorated item/area. Other areas of possible additional décor include: entry, bars, wine toss area, dessert tables, etc. In the past decorations have been done for as little as $0 and as much as $800. Being as economical as possible is paramount, but a budget is allowed for décor items. The decoration lead(s) establishes linens colors and decides napkin folding.
Games Lead(s): We are looking for one to two creative individuals to help us with overseeing the planning and implementation of the games for our Gala event, including set-up the day before (5/19). The game line-up has included a raffle, wine ring toss, Heads or Tails, a Golden Ticket drawing…and we are open to creating any new games to compliment this year’s theme.
