MedShare is an Atlanta headquartered non-profit organization that sends medical supplies to suffering countries. Earlier this month, we hosted, designed and planned their fundraising gala: Kaleidoscope. Hosted at The Foundry at Puritan Mill, we pulled decor inspiration from major countries MedShare serves – Nicaragua, Vietnam, Malaysia, Dominican Republic of Congo, Nigeria, and Niger.
Branded Registration Counters and 10,000 Villages, and a step & repeat were the first things guests experienced when they entered the venue. A silent auction was one way attendees were able to help fund MedShare with their mission.
Before the program begun, guests enjoyed a bourbon tasting bar and a live fashion show paired with African drumming! The beautiful and inspiring fashion came from the fabulous Sorobis by Issa Sorogo.
Tables were dressed in MedShare colors and topped with centerpieces that coordinated with the inspirational countries. Affairs to Remember‘s menu featured items that captured the flairs featured regions of the world. Large festive hoops representing the Middle East and Central America hung from the ceiling, while African themed perimeter decor helped fill the space. Custom branded and thematic pillows added flair to lounge groupings!
Large well-known companies sponsored Giant Operation and a Balloon Dart games where guests could purchase a ticket in exchange for a prize, with all contributions going towards MedShare’s mission. Signage was displayed around the room, keeping with the theme of Kaleidoscope. A large Kaleidoscope logo hung from the stage and acted as the perfect backdrop to the night’s program.
To top off the incredible night, MedShare Humanitarian Award honoree Dikembe Mutombo topped off the live auction, helping us raise over $100,000 by the end of the night! After the program of speeches, silent and live auctions concluded, guests danced the night away to live music!
