10 Nov Throwback Thursday – 2007 David Foster and Friends
Client: The David Foster Foundation – W. Brett Wilson & Wayne Henuset
Dates: May and September 2007
Location: Calgary, AB
Purpose: Fundraiser – Raised over $3 Million
The David Foster Foundation provides financial and emotional help to the families of children needing organ transplants. The events in 2007 began with a spring kick off in May to showcase the gala and sell tables to target audience in Calgary. Held at W. Brett Wilson’s house, a backyard party sold 75% of the tables for the autumn event.
Later in the year in September at the David Foster and Friends Charity Gala, one thousand VIP guests were invited to an exclusive evening of fine dining, wine tasting and intimate entertainment with David Foster, his family and celebrity friends. This lavish spectacle hosted people from all over Calgary to raise awareness for the David Foster Foundation.
Guests were treated to a sumptuous five-course meal, a live auction featuring luxurious packages to various destinations within North America, an ‘Oscar-style’ walk down the red carpet, followed by a spectacular lineup of celebrity entertainment.
