Victory Ball Gala
An annual fundraiser in honor of the Greatest Generation
It’s no secret. In New Orleans, we love parties. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a casual, daytime event or a formal, evening affair. Count us in. And for the team at Solomon Group, the only thing better than attending a fantastic party is helping our clients put one on.
In 2012 our team staged The National WWII Museum’s signature fundraising event, the Victory Ball. That year, it was important to our client that we create an atmosphere inside of the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion that attendees had never seen before, without altering the overall tone of the popular, black tie event.
Guests were greeted by a 40’ x 30’ animation projected onto the side of the building with searchlights tracking across the museum logo. Customized LED screens were flown inside of the cavernous space, depicting animations of vintage war banners slowly waving with integrated sponsor logos. The main stage featured a 30’ x 40’ working austrian curtain, which was carefully rigged around the WWII airplanes hanging in the space overhead. During a special presentation, the curtain rose to reveal an IMAG screen which allowed all of the attendees to view the evening’s special honorees. As the presentation concluded, a Rat Pack trio began performing for guests into the wee hours of the night.
