Hope for Haiti – Winnipeg Benefit Concert: Aboriginal Nations for Haitians Benefit Concert – Friday January 29, 2010

We have all be affected by the devastation in Haiti and I have been especially touched by all of the children affected, hurt and abandoned by this natural disaster. My husband and I have given to the Red Cross and Unicef to support their work and our children have been fundraising at school. I heard about this wonderful benefit concert on the radio today which will be happening on Friday and wanted to invite you all to buy tickets and support their efforts.

ABORIGINALS AND MANITOBANS UNITE FOR CHILDREN OF HAITI
MMF President David Chartrand, along with MKO Grand Chief David Harper, SCO Grand Chief Morris Swan Shannacappo, AMC Grand Chief Ron Evans, NCI FM and APTN National News, are set to host the Aboriginal Nations for Haitians Benefit Concert in an effort to raise much-needed dollars for children in Haiti.

The benefit concert will take place on Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Centennial Concert Hall in Winnipeg. A very talented line-up of Metis and First Nations entertainers will be on hand, giving of their time and energy to help those that need it the most…the children. All proceeds will be donated to UNICEF.

The Aboriginal Nations for Haitians Benefit Concert will showcase a star studded lineup of Manitoba’s best Métis, Inuit and First Nations entertainers including: Ray St. Germain, Billy Joe Green, Sierra Noble, Eagle & Hawk and Kimberley Dawn along with Tom Dutiaume.

State of the City Luncheon – with Mayor Sam Katz

Today the EBE Team was able to attend and participate in The Chamber of Commerce’s State of the City Luncheon held at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.

The Mayor’s State of the City Address is the biggest event of the year for The Chamber attracting over 1,100 people and generating coverage by the local media. Today the Mayor used his speech to announce some important developments for our city.

Once again the EBE Team was able to create a unique table design for the event and showcase our services to the Winnipeg Buisness Community.

With the cold weather upon us our team wanted to create a very fresh, vibrant and warm look. Inspired by one hundred green limes are table featured a beautiful horizontal floral design, contemporary circle patterned linen, green coloured glassware, and white, grey and silver accents.

Inspiration Friday – PURPLE, GREEN + PEACOCK FEATHERS

Inspiration Friday: Purple, Green + Peacock Feathers

Wow! What a crazy week of meetings, phone calls and catching up after last weekend’s Wedding Show.

It’s been a while since I last did an Inspiration Friday and as I our team is putting together some fabulous new inspiration boards for new 2010 clients I am seeing a common colour combination choice by many of them – PURPLE, GREEN + PEACOCK FEATHERS. Definitely these colours and feathers are all trends for 2010 but I am surprised how many boards we are doing. Our design trick is to create unique events for each of these clients and utilize these colours and elements in very different and personal ways for them all.

I thought I would share a couple great ideas I’ve found to inspire you as you are perhaps working on your event.

Have a great weekend!
