The Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach wanted to ring in their 75th Anniversary in a special way this year, so we brought them out of a traditional ballroom and built a 100′x170′ Midbeam Structure in Marine Stadium Long Beach.
Guests arrived on the red carpet, enjoying outdoor refreshments and bidding on silent auction items. The space under the main tent was divided into 2 separate areas. First, a formal dining setup including banquet tables and rounds, chiavari chairs and 16’ crystal chandelier waterfalls. The second area, under the 50’ round clear end, was staged with lounge furniture, bars, a dance floor and LED columns. We also utilized lighting washes to fill the tent with texture and color. Half of the central stage was used during the dinner program while the back section was set for a live concert by the Spazmatics to conclude the evening.
Over $850,000 was raised for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach – the most from a single night in program history. We were proud to be a part of this special evening and deliver a once a in a lifetime experience…. well, at least until next year’s event!
