Fundraising Gala Geoff DeLizzio, Chief Operating Officer

Precon Approach:

Precon partners with our non profit and development clients to manage and communicate an organizations mission and sponsorship goals. We focus on prominent sponsor recognition, helping you to exceed fundraising goals and creating a memorable guest experience by incorporating innovative technology and creative design elements,.

The Goal:

For the Salute to Service Gala, the National Capital Area Region of the American Red Cross wanted to educate their audience on the history and continuing legacy that the American Red Cross has with the United States Military.

The Plan:

For the reception, guests were greeted by volunteers dressed in vintage attire and were handed newspapers featuring headlines from the 1920’s. To create a truly unique silent auction experience for guests, we partnered with Red Cross archivists to convert the hotel foyer into a museum experience. This concept was carried through to the guest seating tables which were adorned with table centerpieces inspired by vintage Red Cross donation boxes. To assist in narrating the history of the Red Cross’ affiliation with the US Armed Forces, speakers such as Secretary of Defense Ashe Carter and Army Veteran JR Martinez engaged the audience. Throughout the evening, a digital video wall blended a dynamic stage background with graphics and video content illustrating the history and current partnership between the American Red Cross and the US Armed Forces.
