The Regent Palms October wine dinner was just a styling warm-up for the annual In the Pink fundraiser. I was thrilled Karen Whitt was keen on most of the ideas I presented in our brainstorming sessions. Like the 4′ tall cascading glitter THINK PINK signs we featured front and center from the balcony,
and the petal draped lanterns billowing from the courtyard trees,
and let’s not forget the gold and fuscia chevron painted cocktail tables!!!
The Regent Palms is such a stunning location for an event, an ideal backdrop where the imagination can run a bit wild. In typical fashion, I wanted to be fairly conservative in bringing in supplies and try to be resourceful with the decor the Palms already had in stock. We recycled wine and champagne bottles to make these beautiful glitter covered vases.
This was the sixth year running and the most successful event to date, from the local SUN:
“During an evening of shopping, dancing and socializing, Saturday, October 11th the organizers of In the Pink held their most successful event ever, reaching their target this year of raising $30,000 which will be donated to the National Cancer Society. This year’s event was hosted at Regent Palms Resort, and was coordinated by the organizing committee who have been involved with the event since its inception.
In the Pink, a powerful and inspiring event was created to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about steps individuals can take to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer, and raise money to assist those persons locally who require additional assistance with extensive treatments.
“Meeting our target again was only possible because of the generous support of our patrons, donors, corporate sponsors and volunteers, who gave from the heart to make this event possible. We are so grateful for the outstanding support we continue to receive year after year.” said Karen Whitt, General Manager of the Regent Palms and Chairman of the Event. We are already talking about new ideas for next year’s event, and we are extremely excited to support such a worthy cause.”
Breast cancer is a widespread disease that universally impacts our society as a whole. Early detection is key to successfully treating the disease. We are so proud to partner with The National Cancer Society to help spread the word about prevention, and to provide much needed assistance for treatment to those persons afflicted with this terrible disease.”
The cotton candy pink limited edition Vespa was a donation from one of the patrons, part of the silent auction portion of the event.
It looked even more beautiful once the sun set, I must say fabulous job and many thanks to Paradise Photography for capturing these beautiful images.
Before, and after the guests began to arrive . . .
Big thanks to all who worked so hard to pull this years bigger and best yet event off; the Regent Palms staff, the organizers, the volunteers, and of course those that attended, shopped, and supported the cause!
