SITE Southern California's 3rd Annual ALL IN Charity Poker Tournament offered us the opportunity to stretch our creative wings, have fun and participate in raising funds for the San Diego Brain Tumor Foundation.
Rebecca Motus enjoyed the challenge of creating floral decor that would hopefully dazzle a ballroom full of event pros and Alisa Walsh met the Poker challenge!
We sponsored eight different arrangements that were used two-fold: as decor to embellish the night and as raffle prizes to help raise funds for the beneficiary of the night.
The tallest arrangement became the center piece for the buffet tables.
Two identical bamboo backed arrangements book-ended one side of the buffet.
A spiraling arrangement enhanced the second buffet table.
Single tall vases for smaller table rounds.
A floral wheel greeted guests as they entered the patio area.
Cork backing added more interest and contrast to an orchids and roses display.
Twists and spheres added character to the dessert tables.
Meanwhile Alisa discovered a yet unknown talent at the poker table!
"The night was a blast, a very fun opportunity to mingle AND play poker. The food was delicious, the Fairmont did a great job. Everyone was laughing all night long and loving that our competitive natures were working for a good cause. Somehow (beginners luck!) I ended up winning and moving to the big time poker table!"
Alisa and Vicki Kern from JNR could not believe their good luck at the tables! Both were really happy to raise funds for the San Diego Brain Tumor Foundation at this industry event.
SITE truly succeeded at turning an industry mingler into a very fun night for a good cause.
