A GOBO Can Really Be Effective

These pictures were taken while we were setting up our ballroom for TTC's Night in the Valley event. Notice the effect of the GOBOs on the wall panels. The white branches really heightened the effect of the winter theme. We can't wait to show you how they looked on the tented outside bar. Stay tuned!

A gobo (or GOBO), derived from "Go Between" or "Goes Before Optics," is a physical template slotted inside, or placed in front of, a lighting source, used to control the shape of emitted light. 

Thanks PDA for another great lighting production.

Flowers for TTC's Night in the Valley. A winter theme.

This year, the theme of  TTC's The Night in the Valley fine dining event is Winter. We'll have photos later showing our fabulous ice blue and white draped ballroom at the Conference Center, but caught these photos of the centerpieces today. There are three, alternated on the tables so that there is variety across the room. Don't they look like winter! There's nothing richer than white hydrangeas. But we're thrilled that baby's breath is back in style. There are so many ways to use it, with so much bang for your buck.

The Pinning Ceremony

This is the decor for the December Pinning Ceremony. A ceremony is planned for each group of May and December nursing graduates. The nurses are required to wear professional attire, which must be a completely white uniform. Female nurses wear dresses and the school cap. The line stretches out through the foyer. It is a beautiful - and touching - evening.

New Backdrop Works Like a Charm

Finance magnate Darla Moore making keynote address. Note how well the backdrop lights 
and how it shows on the screens.
On November 16, 2012, Trident Technical College and the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau hosted a luncheon for hospitality leaders celebrating "Charleston's Number 1 Designation". The keynote speaker, finance magnate Darla Moore, spoke on "Retaining and Leveraging #1."

Luncheon host, Dick Elliott, president and founder of Maverick Southern Kitchens, announced the Maverick Southern Kitchens was making a donation of $100,000 to Trident Technical College, the largest donation Maverick Southern Kitchens has made to the Charleston community. To date, the Maverick Match has generated $70,500 in matching funds. In addition, Ms. Moore personally donated $100,000.
