ALE Wins 2010 NACE Awards

At a prestigious awards ceremony on July 27th in Austin, Texas, A Legendary Event was presented with the following awards from the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE):
2010 Best Catered Off Premise Event of the Year for DIFFA’s Dining by Design. DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS is one of the country’s largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventive education for those at risk. As the event’s caterer, A Legendary Event was challenged to create and serve a menu for 400 seated guests that would be highly memorable and innovative.
2010 Best Guest Table Presentation of the Year for DIFFA’s Dining by Design. Each year, a group of the nation’s top designers are invited to create a unique table design to help raise funds for DIFFA. ALE created a table titled “Feast in the Forest”, where guests dined amidst a magical forest, surrounded by lush greenery and a magnificent display of nature at its finest.

Tony Conway, President and Owner of A Legendary Event said, “A Legendary Event is so honored to receive these important awards and be recognized by our industry partners for our successful year in 2009. I am thrilled that we are the winners of this exciting recognition and, as always, am so proud of our talented team.”

Creative Director Steve Welsh Quoted in Special Event Magazine’s Lead Story

Yesterday, Steve Welsh was quoted in Special Event’s Eventline e-newsletter: Steve Welsh, creative director of Atlanta-based A Legendary Event, explains that his big corporate clients insist on green practices from all their vendors. “There are many tax breaks and other incentive program that these companies receive if they reach their green goal,” he notes. And green events get great PR, he adds: “Do a great green event and you’ll make the front page.”

Welsh is right. In addition to being featured in the Spring issue of Delta Sky Magazine, A Legendary Event’s “Sustainable Table” recently won Best Guest Table Presentation of the Year from the National Association of Catering Executives.
