Headdress Ball 2009

The Hope & Help Center of Central Florida's annual Headdress Ball was in full swing this past Saturday, October 3rd at the new Hilton Orlando International Drive. The charity event raised over $270,000 a successful result despite the current state of the economy.

The event theme -
Red Carpet, Red Ribbon & Red Lipstick inspired the VIP cocktail reception. I incorporated a 24 x 24 foot custom bar in the center of the reception, complete with a back bar and overhead canopy giving that permanent installation signature of my design.

The bar was flanked to one side by the mermaid lounge which was adorned by the beautiful Mertailor land & sea creatures in and out of the water. Situated to the other side of the bar, the dance club, where
American Audio Visual's designer Tommy Hart wow'ed guests with his dramatic reveal of the dance floor hidden behind Moss Inc's fabric walls. Guests danced to the music of DJ Joanie who had a commanding position within a custom built scaffold/ industrial stage and DJ booth surrounded by water walls.

The party went all night long, "ABSOLUTELY", says DJ Joanie- I loved the layout you created for me. The dance floor was perfect and kept the energy high and made people stay in the area. Hope to work with you again in the near future and to see ya out soon!
