One of our clients, Willow Manor, hosted a Senior Gala in September 2014. The event was held at VU’s Green Auditorium and featured live music from the Steve Greenwell Trio to dance the night away! Participants wore cocktail attire and were 55+. There was a cocktail hour, dinner, appetizer bar, a dessert bar, and other fun things like a photo booth and door prizes. Also on site was a professional photographer, Emily Combs Photography, to take pictures of the evening and of the attendees which were available to purchase afterwards.
Haven Solutions worked with Willow Manor to market and advertise the event as well as assist in selling tickets and finding sponsors. Sponsors were found to assist in funding the event so ticket cost for participants was low. Haven Solutions did all of the busy work behind the scenes so employees at Willow Manor could do their day-to-day jobs. We met with Tammy, Willow Manor’s Community Liaison Director, consistently to ensure we were meeting our goals.
The team here at Haven Solutions worked with media outlets in newspaper, radio, social media, email campaigns, and magazines to promote the event. Our team purchased the media spots, wrote the scripts for those spots, and drew up the email campaigns. Our in-house Graphic Design Specialist designed the ads and layouts for everything as well as the programs and tickets that were sold. We did all of this so our client, Willow Manor, wouldn’t have to worry about a thing!
The event was a huge success! The seniors who attend were very excited by all the entertainment and look forward to attending again next year!
