Heal The Bay celebrated its 30th anniversary in beach-chic style, with more than 1,000 ocean-lovers joining the festivities on the sand at the Jonathan Club in Santa Monica. Events By Fabulous created a stunning event atmosphere to entertain and engage guests for a spectacular evening of fun and fundraising. The Gala’s theme “Expect The Unexpected” featured an eclectic mix of specialty performances including a magical MC, stilt walkers in sea god costumes, and tap numbers performed by the LA Follies. Fabulous designed and built a multi-stage arena, complete with a catwalk, satellite performance stages and “larger than life” high-res LED walls to ensure every seat had a perfect view of the show. With such a large event, this space plan was key to creating the intimacy needed to connect the audience to the cause. Other highlights of the evening included craft beer provided by Golden Road Brewery (Heal The Bay IPA), sea creatures posing with guests at blue carpet arrivals, socially connected iPad photo booths, and quirky cover band, Postmodern Jukebox, who had guests dancing in the aisles till the wee hours of the night.
