Charleston’s 2015 AHA Heart Gala was another incredible showcase for our AV and event lighting in Charleston SC and we were pleased to be presenting sponsors. This year’s gala dinner was held at the Memminger Auditorium in downtown Charleston, SC.

We work at the Memminger Auditorium for conference AV and lighting frequently and we are always pleased to light a happy party there. The auditorium recently had a complete renovation making it a perfect venue for a charity or conference dinner event. For this gala, the room was split into two areas by a floor to ceiling curtain. On one side was the bar and cocktail hour where the silent auction took place. On the other side, the room was set for a gold-touched deco dinner party for 300 people.

Our AV and event lighting in Charleston consisted of the fast fold projection screens you see above both the dining room and cocktail room in the photos. We hung cafe bulb lighting to twinkle above the bar. The dining received the royal treatment with five huge staggered crystal chandelier rentals set of by long strands of cafe bulb lighting across the top of the ballroom. It made for a stunning sight! The guests were thrilled when they stepped into the dining area of the evening.
