Last night was the 2010 Heart Gala. The National Heart Association has this gala/auction to raise money each year for research and prevention of heart disease. It's also (according to a reporter in attendance) one of Nashville's prettiest events. Everyone looked so beautiful!
I was the producer of the event working with Erin Link from the Heart Association. Erin is the director of social events and is a dream to work with. She worked tirelessly to make this event a success.
My responsibilities as producer were to oversee the production of the event...from theme to linens to entertainment. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is one of the most beautiful venues. Everyone there is so great to work with. Thank you to Allison Huber, Bruce Pittman, and Brian Doane especially.
Thank you also to my Gary Musick Productions teammates: Jonathan Yeaworth for doing a great job of organizing and directing the sound and AV elements, Jim Sheridan for being an awesome stage manager, Chris L, Jacob, and Chris A. for running the load-in crew, and Gary for putting together the power point presentation.
The theme this year was Asian... "Fortunes of the Heart"
