Tsakopoulos Library Galleria
The SacAfWPi Awards Gala was, like, totally wicked!
Dara Harmon received the highest honor, 2013 Professional of the Year.
The theme was Back to the 80s Prom Night and most attendees dressed the part. A balloon arch (provided by The Party Concierge) over the stairs at the entrance made a great backdrop for Prom Pictures (by Sharpe Wedding Photography). A beautiful and delicious buffet dinner (by Beth Sogaard Catering) featured dishes named “Just Beet It,” “Ferris Bueller’s Steamed Asparagus” and “Dirty Dancing Chicken Roulade.” Centerpieces created by Kristine Bryant (Premier Events by Kristine) were made of real cassette tapes and lit up by centerpiece lights (provided by Creative Memories Entertainment).
Guests were kept entertained all evening with an Open Air Photo Booth (provided by Premier Entertainment & Video), a slide show of members’ real prom photos or senior portraits, a video spoof of The Breakfast Club (created by Phillip Alan Films) with members featured as the actors, funny and heartwarming presentations, and dancing. A Prom Queen and King were even part of the evening.
The biggest surprise came with a real wedding officiated by Rev. Ron Beams. The person behind the theme and chair of the Gala committee was Jennifer Baker (Enchanted Bridal Shoppe). See below for a list of sponsors and Gala Committee members.
