It’s not always about the dress…

27 Jan

ACSI have experience in more than just weddings…. in all sorts of special events, actually. I have a background in corporate event planning. You know, the usual, national trade shows, meetings, luncheons, etc….

I also have a background in non-profit event planning: fundraisers, dinners, etc…. This type of planning has always held a special place in my heart. I enjoy doing something good for others and I find that this sort of thing mixes two of my passions. It’s perfect!

This brings me to my current project that I wanted to share with you. I am the chairman of the Gala Committee for the American Cancer Society. We are holding our Inaugural Winter Wonderland Gala this weekend at The Empire Room in Downtown Greensboro. 

It has been an exciting project…. and it is all coming together beautifully. We will have amazing food from The Painted Plate; open bar; silent auction and music from The Sleeping Booty Band! We will have gorgeous winter trees brought into the room from a local nursery to be strung with lights…. snowflakes and candles…. Check back next week for pictures from the event.

If you would like to attend….it’s not too late! Order your tickets from Kat Kestler at

Check out the wonderful billboards up all over town this month…. thank you to Derek Gurley for his design!
