Wish Ball 2009-Evening with the Stars

I love that I have the opportunity to donate to organizations with a real purpose and a true heart for those in need and Make A Wish is one of those organizations. Setting the Mood donated centerpieces for this wonderful celebrity fundraising event. The Wish Ball is Make a Wish Foundation’s annual fundraiser. The Make a Wish mission is to grant wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. This event features lots of local celebrities, dinner, live and silent auctions and a change to meet the Wish Kids. This year they raised over $250,000.00!! Dallas Clark of the Indianapolis Colts, lots of Colts players well as Head Coach Jim Caldwell were available for guests to hobnob with for the evening.

Last Friday we decorated for the annual CPA Celebration Event. For the past three years this event is based around a decade theme. This year was the 70’s/Disco decade. As the guests entered they ‘hustled’ through a disco record curtain. On the flip side was Dyn-O-Mite Lounge with far out cocktail table centerpieces of lava lamps and framed disco records. The tables were dressed with shiny lame cloths in gold, red, blue and green. Centerpieces included a disco ball, platform shoes with “tie dye” groovy flowers or retro fondue pots with flowers. A giant 4′ round disco ball took center stage above the dance floor. The best part of the night was that the guests really got into the theme. There were so many super fly “get-ups” and it seems like they got into the groove even more than last year. Can you dig it?
