The Making of a Masterpiece

To produce the 2012 Red Cross Gala in Union Square takes several long days of installation and a lot of man power. Exciting is to see the space slowly come alive and activated by the creative elements that make the program cohesive. DPEM has been hard at work since early Tuesday morning installing for what is sure to be the highlight of this season’s social calendar.

Benefiting the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter, tomorrow night is the chapter’s signature, annual fundraising event. The Red Cross Gala brings together philanthropists from throughout the Bay Area for an evening of dinner and dancing. All proceeds from the event benefit disaster relief and readiness efforts in the Bay Area.

As a community-based, humanitarian organization, the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter provides relief to those affected by disasters and empowers individuals in our community to prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. By helping people in the Bay Area learn how to take care of their families and neighbors, the Red Cross strengthens the community and makes it ready for all types of disasters, including fires, earthquakes, wildfires and other emergencies. DPEM is proud to partner with the American Red Cross on their annual fundraiser each year.

Take a look at the photographs below for a behind the scenes peek at install of the Red Cross Gala. Stay tuned for images of the finished event!
