Press Release Summary: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Press Release) Octgober 30, 2008 - An evening of high-energy club music, hors d'oeuvres, prizes, cocktails, cupcakes, conversation and merriment is set to kick off the first of what hopefully will become an annual Event Planners Appreciation Party on Thursday, November 6, 2008.
Press Release Body: Nearly two-hundred Eco-friendly e-invitations were sent out to all the notable Event Planners from event venues across Pittsburgh and the surrounding area inviting them downtown to SPACE Gallery for an evening of entertainment, networking, relaxation and fun. A unique endeavor, this event may be one of the first occasions held specifically for Event Planners as they neared the end of yet another hectic season of planning, detailing and executing hundreds of successful events for their Corporate and Wedding clients.
Planners from some of the top local venues will be in attendance, such as the Frick Art Center, Falling Water, Carnegie Museum/Music Hall, Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh Athletic Association, Renaissance Downtown, Soldiers & Sailors, Armstrong Farms, Bella Sera by Greco, the Airport Marriott, Station Square Marriott and Highland Park Country Club. Some of the top independent event planners in Pittsburgh were also planning to attend, such as Simone Hudson of 5Senses Events Design, Katherine Shaw of Trends to Traditions, Patti Lifson of Pittsburgh Party Planners, and Carolyn Fairley of Premier Wedding Planning.
The party is to be hosted by several of the leaders in the Pittsburgh wedding industry: Joanne Bartone Photographer, event deejay Jeremy Ganss of Jeremy Ganss Productions, James Gray of Pittsburgh's destination for deserts, Dozen Bake Shop/Dozen Cupcakes, Michael Jacobs of Blooms Florist who has provided Couture Wedding Services since 1985, Jeanne Baseman of Table Talk Linens and the popular and creative husband and wife Cinematography team of Marco and Jenny Giordani of Cana Films.
The concept for the Event Planners Appreciation Party originated as the marketing brain-child of Karen Wainwright, Business Development Manager for Joanne Bartone, an International Award-winning Photographer based in Pittsburgh. Ms. Wainwright shared that "the event was initially intended to solely promote Ms. Bartone's creative talents then grew into a co-operative effort of networking and cross-promotion between these wedding industry leaders and friends after Joanne and I thought, 'why not promote some of the other highly regarded vendors that we recommend to host the party with us.'" "It's really a great opportunity for all of us," said Joanne Bartone Photographer. "It's great to get together with old friends, make some new friends over drinks, food and confections; it's an occasion for us to network and learn from each other while promoting our services in a festive atmosphere!"
Held at one of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's premier Galleries, SPACE Gallery will also be hosting the Then and Now photo exhibit, curated by noted artist and community leader Deryck Tines. The exhibit is based on the THEN photographs of crossdressers in Pittsburgh's Hill District as found in the Carnegie Museums Teenie Harris Archives. It will also feature the NOW photographs of today's community as seen through the lens of fifteen current Pittsburgh photographers.
