One of the best things about working with Premiere is the myriad of opportunities our team members have to be a part of, and present at. Premiere team members are able to attend some of our community’s most amazing galas, festivals and events. We’re grateful for these perks of the party and event rental profession, and wanted to share with you some of the most recent causes we’ve supported and activities in which we’ve been involved. You’ve seen some of our 2018 Fundraising work featured on Facebook and Instagram, but here’s a little more “behind the scenes” Fundraising insight….
The 2018 Spring Fundraising season kicked off with the 29th annual Bandana Ball benefitting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas (one of my personal favorite causes). You may not remember how cold it was this April 7th evening, but the Wild Onion ranch, Bandana’s home for the last several years, was warm and welcoming. Dinner for his signature RMHC event is held under Premiere’s Losberger tent, a structure that accommodates buffets, bars and seating for all nine-hundred B B guests.
Bandana Ball is more casual than most fundraisers, and its Cowboy-Chic flair is a huge part of its charm. Bandana comes complete with longhorns (great photo op), and this year, with miniature donkeys, a cigar roller and a fundraising staple here in Texas-wine country, the wine toss. If you want to support a great organization without spending a small fortune on a new ball gown (and all the obligatory accessories), don your favorite jeans next year, polish up your boots and plan to attend the 30th annual Bandana Ball!
Two weeks later, Premiere supported the April 20th Laguna Gloria Art Dinner. This fundraising event is held on the museum grounds, and, like Bandana, is staged in a specially created tented environment. Premiere’s clear-top tents provided a compelling setting for this quintessentially Austin celebration. The weather for this occasion was absolutely perfect, and guests mingled, greeted old friends and met new ones. The Laguna Art Dinner features a multi-course, somewhat formal sit-down dinner, along with the opportunity to view, and purchase, inspired and inspiring works of art. Art Dinner proceeds enable the museum to fund new additions to their incredible collection – works of that can be enjoyed by all Austinites.
We have loved being a part of these two very different, but equally special, fundraisers and look forward to the many more to come for 2018.
