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
