It’s a tough job… but someone must do it! Attending some of our community’s most amazing events is both a pleasure and a privilege. We’re so grateful to be part of a company that supports not-for-profit groups and organizations, including (just to name a few of the many) Children’s Causes (RMHC Charities of Central Texas, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Austin Children’s Services, Center for Child Protection, the Settlement Home, Dell Children’s), Industry Organizations (ILEA, NACE, Austin Food and Wine Foundation, Wedding Network) The Arts (Paramount Theatre, the Blanton, Ballet Austin) and Education (including, most notably, Texas State University Athletics, The University of Texas, and St. Edwards University.)
In exchange for our sponsorships and support, members of the Premiere team have the opportunity to attend these events ranging from refined black-tie galas (like the annual Paramount Gala held on Congress Avenue ) to cowboy/cowgirl chic affairs (Bandana Ball) to signature events, including Austin Food and Wine Foundation’s Wine and Swine, Live Fire and Official Drink of Austin.
The weekend of April 29th offered so many opportunities, the Premiere team was all over Austin and the surrounding areas attending these wonderful events. The Georgetown CVC hosted Red Poppy Fest, an annual event held on one of the top 10 City Squares in the US. The National Domestic Abuse Hotline hosted a fundraiser at one of our favorite venues, Brazos Hall.
Premiere Events Dripping Springs was also a contributor to the Pound House Heritage Gala.
Perhaps the highlight of this past weekend was the annual Gala on the Gridiron, benefiting Texas State Athletics. This event, held on the newly renovated and recently expanded Jim Wacker field, raised money to fund scholarships for deserving Texas State athletes participating in men’s and women’s sports. Premiere provided an 82 x 131 structure tent which sheltered the 600 guests from the wind, rain and threatening weather. Premiere also provided tables, chairs, linens, staging and full catering support… everything needed to transform a football field into an impressive and unique event venue.
A bountiful buffet and generous bar service opened the evening. After enjoying plenty to eat…. and all you wanted to drink, we were treated to a rousing performance by Recycled Percussion, who finished third in the 2011 season of American’s Got Talent. They showed the crowd why their interactive brand of “junk rock” continues to draw impressive crowds. This year’s Bobcat Bonanza was a stunning success in every context, and an all-around great evening for all of us in attendance.
Thanks to the dedicated Premiere field-staff team for their diligence, commitment and astounding capabilities. Thanks to the Event Consulting staff for their role in translating our event-holders visions into impressive, successful realities. Thanks to our clients and customers for giving us the opportunity to be a part of their meaningful work in such enjoyable ways.
