a night for the town

The start of a new week brings my latest project—a silent auction fundraiser for Mission: St. Louis. Below is a snapshot of the event including a few details I had my hands in.

This year the event was hosted at a stellar St. Louis venue called The Moto Museum, which is an incredible space.

On to my details! Top left is an item donated by my book club, and I made a cute bookmark that I thought you might enjoy. The other three images are item descriptions/titles that I designed for all 250 auction items. Designed around the theme of "work supplies"—because most funds were designated for the jobs training program—these descriptions are meant to mimic index cards, certificates, and business cards.

Moving into the food/music/entertainment space, I styled these centerpieces to go along with the work supplies theme. The pencils hold the "reserved for sponsor" sign and the typewriters have a snippet about the jobs programs.

Then I also made these "timecards" in the hopes to encourage smaller donations, using tangible prices like "$15 provides one workbook".

Big type posters describing each of the 5 major programs of the organization.

And lastly a luxurious table display, haha! Slightly last minute, but still quasi-functional in gaining exposure for the raffle ticket sales.

The team did an incredible job putting on the event for 400+ people, and I was blessed to be a part of it.

Hopefully this wasn't too informative a.k.a. boring! I'm terrible at indoor/flash photography, so I almost didn't want to post about the event. But I figured it's still fun, right? Regardless, I am stoked that my schedule is now crawling compared to the last few months of my life. ****Sigh of relief*****
