Back at Sacred Hearts Schools

We were excited to return to Sacred Hearts Schools in Atherton for yet another fundraising event. Last year we helped to throw a 60's Hippie party (see older posts), this year's theme was "a day at the beach". The dinner and live auction was to be the "evening at the beach", so we decided it would be fun to create a sunset behind the stage using only lighting fixtures and lots of imagination. We call it "painting with light", it is elaborate and time consuming but it is definitely unique and artistic and these were exactly the words we heard over and over again that night.


The S.F. Conservatory of Music Gala

For this highly anticipated social Gala event we teamed up with our dear old friends from Ideas The Special Events Company. We have been sharing goals and visions with these folks for almost 20 years now and for the last six years also the warehouse address. Looking back I realize that it took me longer to design and fine tune the elaborate fly grid than to actually put it together and rig it from the tent structure. But ultimately it was time well spent, because we got rave reviews on the job and a very happy client. Can you believe this is a tent set over a parking lot and it was gone the next day?


Monte Carlo Night at City Hall

The idea of a fundraiser named Monte Carlo Night was conceived 8 years ago on a patio in San Franciscos Mission District. My buddy Joe Belluomini rented a tiny room in the Presidio, I brought in a small PA and some uplights, his Mom found sponsors for a few cases of wine and then she made sandwiches for the guests. Today it has grown into one of the most anticipated social events the City has to offer and last year we raised almost $ 50 000.00 for medical research. Looking forward to next year !


Sacred Hearts Schools

The annual fundraiser at Sacred Hearts Schools in Atherton has always been an extravaganza even by local standards. This year we added some serious 60's spirit and groove to it and then we all became hippies (again) for an evening of fund raising. Kind of tells you that you're not in your twenties anymore when you set up a 60's theme party and you remember ALL the songs playing...


The Tree of Hope

Every year thousands of hopes and wishes from all over the world find their way to San Francisco City Hall to be hand crafted into little Origami cranes covering the Tree of Hope. Due to a constant shortage of money, the budget for our tree lighting was slashed but we just went ahead and we've been lighting it for 4 years now . Here' s our donation to the City of San Francisco, because hope is supposed to be a shiny beacon, right?



Black Rock Arts Foundation

An enchanted evening at the old Bentley Reserve in Downtown San Francisco is evoking the spirit of the Playa and also raising some serious funds for the good cause. Beautiful people in awe-inspiring costumes are having a wonderful time and then come 3:00 AM they all disappear and we're stuck with the early morning breakdown and load-out.

TAM 100

The occasion: The 100th birthday of Mount Tamalpais High School in Marin. We provided staging, sound, backline, power and power distribution, decor lighting, safety lighting and the know-how to put a 100x180' tent on dimmers. And cheers, since the event went without a single glitch.


Charity Events

We take pride in the fact that we have helped to raise millions of dollars for medical research, school equipment or charity. We know that the main part of a fundraiser is to raise funds for the ones in need and not to fill the pockets of the production team and we will work hard to meet your budget and still deliver the best bang for your buck.
