The Salvation Army Hope Gala 2016

This was a Black Tie Event for The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command.  Main Stream Events and PR Firm designed and coordinated their Hope Gala 2016.  This is there 3rd annual and we are honored to have coordinated all three of them.  We had 375 feet of Red Carpet and beautiful pedestals filled with pictures of Salvation Army services that the guests walked through as they arrived.  We transformed he gymnasium into a beautiful dinner atmosphere.  The legendary Coach Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech Football was our Key Note Speaker.

It was a team effort with amazing vendors and wonderful Salvation Army staff and volunteers.

A Big shout out to our vendors who we couldn't have made this event as spectacular without them.
