We have an awards banquet just like most industries do. It is called the Emerald City Applause Awards and this is where the Seattle event and wedding planning market comes each year to applaud the winners of all kinds of events.
This year was extra special because we won for an event that was so near and dear to my heart. I wanted to raise awareness for Eastside Women of Purpose, a charity supporting the fight against human trafficking. Combine that with my love for Sex and the City and we made up an event. I rented a movie theater on the opening night of Sex and the City 2 film at Lincoln Square in downtown Bellevue. Pearl Restaurant was the pre-party and silent auction, where the two top prizes were a pair of Manolo Blahnicks and a necklace that Sarah Jessica Parker actually wore in the movie.
BEST NON-PROFIT EVENT PLANNED FOR LESS THAN $25,000
Thanks to www.downtownbellevue.com for promoting our event and getting us placed high in the SEO ratings!
We had such a blast at the Sex and the City event we hosted at Pearl Bar and Dining on May 27. The ladies were out in full force and dressed to impress! All of the proceeds will be donated to Eastside Women of Purpose to aid in the fight against Human Trafficking. We raised close to $3,000 in raffle ticket sales.
A huge thanks needs to go out to ALL of the people that made this event such a beautiful success! Sponsors, donations, volunteers and of course…the guests for coming!! A special thanks needs to go out to Karan Dannenberg with Karan Dannenberg Clothiers for donating a necklace that Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the SATC2 film…check out photo below!
Guests checked in at Pearl Bar and Dining where they sipped cosmos, enjoyed the photo booth, nibbled on flavorful bites and participated in the raffle. They were then escorted up to Lincoln Square Cinemas where we pulled the raffles inside our private movie theater. Then of course the night ended with a private showing of Sex and the City 2. It was good to see the girls again!
Thank you Kristen Honeycutt Photographer for the awesome Crazy Cam!
