YEG Night In: Your First Virtual Gala

On April 25, 2020, guests will gather online for a social and fundraising event called YEG Night In. The goal of this initiative is to give people a place and time to connect socially online while supporting valuable mental health projects.

The Concept

It’s a virtual night out. This event is a chance to get dressed up, prepare a fine meal, bust out the nice dishware, and crack open your drink of choice to be social online with old friends or new ones. Props, elegant attire, and fancy decor are all welcome. Let’s make this into an upscale online experience… but if you want to show up in sweat pants eating Kraft Dinner we won’t judge.

During these difficult times, it’s important to connect with people. The tolls of isolation can be devastating, so let’s work together to stay social.

How will it work?

At YEG Night In, guests will arrive to a virtual cocktail hour with their drinks of choice in hand, and be placed at tables for the night. Each table will have a Host to facilitate introductions and provide information. Throughout the event, there will be presentations during which all attendees will be brought back to the main group. Attendees’ self-prepared meals will be eaten with their table during the dinner hour. The formal portion of the evening will end with a livestream entertainment program. Following this, guests will be welcome to stay at their table for a couple more hours to continue the conversation or play online games with a suggested list provided.

Supporting the Community

YEG Night In will be donating $1 for every ticket sold to the Mental Health Foundation, which raises funds and mobilizes resources to improve outcomes within Alberta’s addiction and mental health care system. The Foundation’s vision is to ensure an accessible, easy-to-navigate and fully integrated addiction and mental health care system in Alberta. 

The Mental Health Foundation supports Text4Hope, a free service providing three months of daily Cognitive Behavioural Therapy-based text messages written by mental health therapists to help with COVID-19 related stress and anxiety. If you’re struggling, text COVID19HOPE to 393939 to subscribe. 

During this time, it is important to stay physically healthy and safe, but the tolls of isolation can be devastating too – so let’s practice safe socializing!

Community Event: Salisbury in Bloom

I was lucky enough recently to help plan and coordinate a spring community event at Salisbury Village in Sherwood Park. I’ve worked with my friends at Avillia Developments for a few years now, and in that time I have been able to get to know Salisbury Village well. This area is a beautiful residential and commercial development just south of Wye Road in Sherwood Park, and it’s always a pleasure to spend time here.

Letters from Pluto - Live in Space! Concert photos

Live in Space Concert Gallery

2016 was a whirlwind year, and one of the most exciting projects I worked on was Live in Space!, a concert planned in conjunction with Edmonton musician Letters from Pluto. Presented by Lexus of Edmonton, this event was an OUT OF THIS WORLD experience incorporating a live concert by Letters from Pluto paired with a laser show and projections from outer space. Today I am sharing a gallery of some of my favourite photos from that evening.

Is my event worthwhile? How to decide.

Is Planning My Event Worthwhile?

Anyone who follows my blog or social media accounts probably already knows that I’m planning an awesome concert & laser show with Edmonton musician Letters from Pluto, who also happens to be my friend. The event is taking place on November 3, and I’m pretty excited about it (if you want more info, hop on over to last week’s blog post).  That being said, I can hardly believe that it’s been only two weeks since we announced that it was happening. The timelines for this event have been so condensed that it really wasn’t that long ago that I was debating whether or not I should put my time, energy, and money into making this concert a reality. What makes an event worthwhile? Keep reading for my instructions on deciding!

You can't control everything - an important event planning lesson

You Can’t Control Everything – An Important Event Planning Lesson

As an event planner, I’m used to scrutinizing the details of a project, and coming up with plans to combat problems that arise. It’s my job to do everything I can to ensure a smooth and successful event. Usually I’m really great at this. Typically I’m able to mitigate problems down to be a non-issue, and my client usually doesn’t know how many I solve. But there’s one thing I just can’t control, and that’s the weather. This is an important event planning lesson.

A Beachy Bridal Shower

A Beachy Bridal Shower

I recently helped to plan a beachy bridal shower for one of my very best friends, who was married in Hawaii this summer. When the two other girls in the bridal party brought up the idea of a beach theme for the shower, I was immediately on board for a couple reasons. A beachy bridal shower was perfect for this particular friend, but on top of that, this theme is also relatively easy to do really well.
