Variety Manitoba Gold Heart Gala 2015

Variety Manitoba Gold Heart Gala 2015

This year we had the great pleasure of producing and planning an amazing Fundraising Gala Event for Variety Manitoba.

For this event, we wanted to re-energize it and create a fun, interactive environment for guests to experience. That is why we decided to bring the Variety Gala back to their entertainment and circus roots. Guests were invited to “Come One, Come All – Under the Big Top,” and experience a night that would take them back to their childhood ways and have them feeling like kids again.

Variety2
When decorating a traditional ballroom, it can present a bit of a challenge when creating a big top feel, so developing the theme to represent a circus everyone knows and loves was important. Large red and white drapes hung from the ceiling resembling the iconic circus tent, and circus ring table centrepieces were created to add some fun to the tables. They were even set with miniature circus animals.

To get guests involved throughout the night, we wanted to have them moving around and interacting with multiple elements. That meant adding a little twist to traditional gala features and using every square inch of the venue.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with freshly baked mini donuts from the Mini Donuts & More truck, and they walked down a vibrant red carpet to lead them upstairs under the big top. They were also greeted with a little show from jugglers, stilt walkers, and contortionists.

In lieu of a silent auction, guests had the chance to play popular childhood games like Operation, balloon darts, ring toss, and Mega Wire. Who doesn’t love healthy competition? We also included a balloon pop, which guests could buy a balloon to have a  chance at winning a prize.

To top it all off, entertainers from Folklorama Talent, Dan and Kim Craig of The Street Circus/Circus Spectacle, and Dean Gunnarson performed incredible acts that had guests entertained and in awe of their talent. Later in the evening, guests were invited to snap a photo with Dean Gunnarson and ask him all the “how” questions.

The evening finished off with a Sweet Shop, sponsored by Boyd Autobody and Salisbury House where guests helped themselves to a delicious array of treats such as donuts, mini pies, cotton candy, popcorn and an ice cream bar with an assortment of toppings all to satisfy their sweet tooth.

We can’t believe another gala season has come to an end and we already can’t wait until next year!

Here are our favourite moments of the night!
