Event Showcase ~ The Red Ball


The Cause 

The Red Ball is dedicated to helping people living with cancer and their families through research initiatives, accommodation to those living with cancer as well as education programs to help Fight Cancer in partnership with the Fight Cancer Foundation. A really wonderful cause and foundation which we couldn’t be more willing to be part of this year.

The Venue Look

As it is The Red Ball, everything was RED! Which by the way is our favourite colour here at Active, so it’s no surprise that our red panne draping made an appearance on every wall of Crown Casino’s palladium, and it looked stunning! There’s something about that colour and the way it reflects the room AV and lighting that gets everyone a little bit excited for the event proceedings to follow.

The Table Look

Black and silver striped table overlays added a bit of shine to each table with a trio of glass vases with floating candles to create interest, movement and warmth as you entered the event space. Mirror rounds under each arrangement added depth and drama to the overall table look.

The Pre-function Area Look

The pre-function area featured a massive media wall and custom red balloon arch to really draw you in to get your photo taken, and of course an matching red carpet really topped it off and gave it that bit of glam needed at an event such as this! It may be why we took quite a few photos in front of it throughout the night.

The Stage Look 

The Stage Look was simple but highly effective using Encore’s LED Wall in Crown Casino. The main feature logo was displayed throughout the night creating a red glow on stage and changed to be more dynamic when key performances were on stage creating a seamless blend between stage set styling and technology.

The Result

Red Ball Melbourne 2018 was a huge success, with close to $700,000 being raised to support Australian families living with cancer. Once again, we are delighted that so much was raised for such a good cause.
