Rosati-Kain Auction


How do you take a school gym and turn it into a ballroom – where the lighting creates an inviting ambiance, the sound isn’t echoing from concrete walls, and the look resembles an evening venue instead of a high school basketball game?  

Rosati-Kain’s Auction did just that. An all-girls college-prep high school, located in the Central West End,  their goal was to raise money for the school’s scholarship fund …and keep their expenditures for decor and production to a minimum.  

Although the budget was tight – Rosati-Kain’s intent was to create an environment and experience with engaging entertainment for their guests.



-Utopia’s emcee greeted guests as they arrived on the Red Carpet at the entrance to the school. The brief greeting was televised via live feed onto screens into the gym.

-Utopia made suggestions for how to best set the room up; decor to cover gym walls with pipe and drape; creative mood-setting lighting and help enhance the theme for the night.

-Utopia provided engaging entertainment at the conclusion of the program to help extend the evening with a celebration that made the guests feel appreciated … and make the night an indelibly memorable.



The opportunity to witness nonprofits change lives in real-time is an experience our team is so lucky to have. The work that these schools do would not be possible without the generosity of their donors, and we are thankful every day that we get to be a part of the experience … from helping offer suggestions in planning all the way to the culmination of so many hours of planning and execution.  We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to help create an engaging entertainment experience at the Rosati-Kain Auction.


I worked with Utopia Entertainment for the Rosati-Kain  Auction in 2020, and it was a pleasant experience! Joey and his team bring a lot of high energy to the event, and their ideas to upscale our entryway with red carpet and live feed of guests coming into the event was great. It was a nice touch for the guests! They definitely have a lot of energy and ambition to help make your event the best it can be!
