Alisa Walsh Reports from the Brand New House of Blues Anaheim


Alisa Walsh had the pleasure and the honor of chairing the MPI Orange County Spring Social and Fundraiser on March 22, 2017.

The Theme: "Back to the Blues".
The very appropriate Event Location:
the brand new House of Blues at the Anaheim Garden Walk.

The excitement among MPI members to be the very first to experience an event during opening week at the new location was palpable.
Alisa: "The event was very well attended and we raised over $12,000 for MPI! Everyone had a great time!
The new House of Blues Anaheim at the Garden Walk is much larger than the previous HOB at Downtown Disney - and it is a great event location!"
Here is our location report.

Here is our location report.
Alisa: "The new House of Blues still retains the classic character and feel of the known brand, but the Anaheim location is an updated, more modern version of the Southern juke joint. It alludes in design style to a gospel church. It is more eclectic and upscale. We used the Foundation Room and the Restaurant for our event. I was moving around all night long to check the event flow. The HOB staff was fantastic! No first night mishaps! "
Alisa: "Having The Foundation Room, the traditional space for HOB members and VIPs, at our disposal allowed us to treat our VIP planners and top donors to a private area. We raised funds through live and silent auctions. Our auctioneers appeared dressed as the Blues Brothers at the beginning and ended the night in Elvis costume. They matched the decor and the mood perfectly. HOB made our work easy! Everything is included and in place: decor, staging, lighting. Catering and Beverage Service is provided by House of Blues. The variety of spaces allows for many different styles and sizes of events in the center of Anaheim. The more upscale, modern design is a great match for corporate events, just steps from the Anaheim Convention Center."
A BIG Thank You to Katie Pederson, | Director of Sales - Special Events, House of Blues - Anaheim, for allowing us to use their photo material, all shot by Alexander Mo.

Wishing you a fabulous week!
