Fashion Ball

May 19, 2015

The annual Fashion Ball fundraising event at The Plaza Hotel in New York City was attended by 400 guests and raised over $800,000. Events with Ginger & Co. communicated with guests for their journal ads and guest lists, volunteers regarding their roles and responsibilities and vendors for final confirmations of their products and services. We also prepared the run-of-show for production use and managed the program on-site, including the unique “balloon auction,” where guests pledged $100-$2,500 and received a balloon recognizing their donation.

Ginger and Amy were great to work with. They managed communications with attendees and ran the night of event program and volunteers for the Foundation Fighting Blindness Fashion Ball. The projects they oversaw really helped make our event a success.

We helped the Foundation Fighting Blindness with their 4th Annual “Banking On A Cure” fundraising event, which included a cocktail reception and dinner with a short awards program. Over 250 people attended this gala fundraiser at The Plaza, where we aided with communication with speakers, managed all aspects of production and the run-of-show, and provided and trained volunteers for the event.

Boston Visionary Awards Dinner & Symposium On Retinal Innovation

April 9-10, 2013

Two hundred fifty people attended the Boston Visionary Awards Dinner and participated in the “Dining In The Dark” fundraising gala, eating their entrée while wearing blackout masks. The next day, a full slate of academics and speakers participated in a Symposium packed with information about the cutting-edge research happening in the Retinal field today. We helped with production, on-site management and venue relations, among other services, for this wonderful fundraising event.
