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.”

Legendary Community Service

Last week, our team spent a few of our mornings volunteering for the Senior Citizen Services. What a rewarding non-profit organization (click here to visit the website)!! We spent the first morning delivering Meal on Wheels to disabled senior citizens in the city. Our floral team made a special arrangement for each one of the seniors that we delivered along with the meals. The seniors enjoyed the flowers to their fullest and we enjoyed putting a smile on their faces. The second morning was spent packing the meals for the Meals On Wheels Program. We packed hundreds of meals and wish to express our gratitude to the dedicated staff at the center. Check out our pictures below to see our team in action.

Atlanta Occasions

In May, we spent two FULL days helping Atlanta Occasions with a photo shoot at 200 Peachtree.  If you have not seen 200 Peachtree, this is an amazing sneak peak into how gorgeous this new venue truly is.  The original marble floors were brought back to life as well as the most obvious, breath-taking feature….the chandeliers.  The 14 foot tall chandeliers originally hung in the Macy’s Herald Square flagship store and were brought to the Atlanta’s Macy’s in 1927.  Can you imagine shopping in such a gorgeous space???
The issue is filled with pages from the photo shoot.  This is my favorite shot, that shows the table from the balcony area.  We couldn’t have done this photo shoot without the help from our fantastic vendors.  The gorgeous embroidered linens were provided by BBJ, the rentals were graciously donated by Event Rentals Unlimited, the lighting by Magnum Lighting & Design and the menu and place cards were printed and donated by Paces Paper.  The photographs were taken by the fantastic Ben Vigil and the behind the scenes footage was provided by the talented  Nancy Jo McDaniel.  Thank you to Heather Vreeland with Atlanta Occasions for giving us this great opportunity!!

The Summer/Fall Issue 2010 is available on new stands today. There is so much more inside the pages of the magazine.  Happy Reading & Happy 4th of July!!
