Fundraiser: Genesis Young Leaders Sixth Annual Masquerade Gala

Step right up and experience a night Under The Big Top! This past February, Genesis Women’s Shelter hosted the Genesis Young Leaders Sixth Annual Masquerade Gala here at sixty five hundred. From a live monkey greeter to talented jugglers, the circus-themed night was packed with excitement. The planning committee created an atmosphere that encompassed the creative theme and provided a fun-filled evening for their guests. Red and white drapery lined the walls throughout the venue to create a “Big Top” feel and tables received specialty linens from La Tavola which were filled with delicious fair foods by Food Glorious Food. A tip of the hat to WOW Factor Events and BEYOND, who completed the theme with red uplights, Edison-bumb string lights and a bold marquee bulbed archway. This “Greatest Showman” inspired affair was successfully captured by Tamytha Cameron Photography on this magical February night.

The entire venue transformed to suit the theme, from draping on the ceiling to vintage rental furniture. Mirrored, gold communal tables and matching chiavari barstools rented from Perch Event Décor were a perfect compliment, as it reflected the colors and lights from all around the room. Simple candles, with the added touch of delicate rose floral arrangements from Something Pretty Floral, created elegant tablescapes. Each and every detail was extraordinary.

As the stage is often a focal point of the event, it was important to get creative with the design. On this night, Perch Event Decor provided a 21st century take on the vintage circus theme by continuing the mirrored look from the communal tables to the stage. The stage façade and backdrop expanded the reflection of the specialty décor and activity throughout the venue. Once Taylor Pace Orchestra hit the stage, the dance floor was filled with guests dancing the night away. Perch enclosed the dance floor with tufted leather couches, gold pedistals, and vibrant red pillows for guests to rest their feet throughout the evening.

Once the band took a break, a jumping juggler on a pogo-stick, from B3 Entertainment, was there to steal the spotlight! Guests were throughly intruiged and watched in amazement as he performed. With live performers, an expansive casino, and a rockstar band, there was entertainment at every turn. Truly a fun and exciting evening for Genesis Women’s Shelter and their patrons and one we will never forget!
