Working with my favorite event planners in the whole world – Bravo! Events – the Hargrove team conceived and designed this event inspired by the tagline ‘anything is possible’. The evening’s honoree was a young lady who had won the AKF calendar competition with her whimsical drawing of a cow jumping over the moon – it was incredibly cute and we were inspired: We channelled this sense of child-like wonder and hope and fused this with an illustrative, yet elegant, approach to create a ‘tree of hope’ that created a shadow box backdrop and presided as an illuminated canopy over the evening’s affair. On the Hargrove team were Ron Nicynski, Account Executive; Katie Frank, Account Manager; Matt Solsbery, Project Manager; Jameson Shroyer, Detailer; and last but not least Phil Mullen, who expertly strung and assembled every last leaf.
