Charleston AV setup for the 2015 Citadel Republican Society Dinner

Charleston AV setup

We thought we would bring you a look into our Charleston AV setup for a very special gala dinner event. And we’ll spoil the surprise now: this post involves a might cast of characters! None other than Donald Trump, Rick Santorum, and Tim Scott among so many notable others. What?  You ask?

Yes. We had some very weighty Republican personalities on our Charleston AV setup this month. We were pleased to be the AV and lighting vendor for the 2015 Citadel Republican Society Dinner Above you have our large fast fold projection screen rentals set up for Rick Santorum’s address. The same was the case for Donald Trump. Political opinions aside – like good bartenders, we never get mired down in political opinions – it was a glittering evening of lovely people assembled to make a difference for youth. The Citadel Republican Society scholarships make a huge difference to many lives as evidenced by the opening video for this dinner. You can see it here.

Finally Donald Trump was honored and not only was it easy to be star struck, this whole event was noted and captured on the national news by Good Morning America. We are so happy to see this. We just love great public relations attention on the work of the Citadel Society and are so pleased thte star power of the guests, recipients, and attendees garnered national attention. Well deserved.
