UNITED WAY THANK YOU EVENT
WHO: United Way of Greater St. Louis
WHEN: Decemeber 6, 2018
WHY: United Way of Greater St. Louis helps the community of St. Louis and beyond in a myriad of way, all with one goal in mind: helping people live their best lives possible. From improving health, fostering education and providing food and shelter to those in need, United Way truly makes a difference in our community every single day. The work they do not only helps individuals in our community, but they also fund more than 160 non-profit agencies in our region.
WHAT: Every year, United Way hosts a campaign that brings in millions of dollars for our community. To wrap up the campaign, United Way celebrates its biggest donors with a thank you celebration. From food, entertainment and movies, this event highlights all of the accomplishments from the past year and how grateful the organization is for its supporters.
HOW WE HELPED: We wanted to make sure that each of the guests felt like celebrities for the night. We set up a red carpet runway, complete with paparazzi and a live feed. Our emcee/paparazzi interviewed the guests when they entered the event, and that interview projected to the large screen on the other side of the room. Also, we created a short highlight video, took pictures of the event and had our photo booth set up. We also had our DJ and emcee on stage all night playing music and interacting with the guests.
FINAL WORDS: United Way has been one of our longest partners and we are so lucky to work with an organization that does so much for our community. Click here to learn more about United Way's mission and how they help so many St. Louis residents live their best possible lives.
THE TEAM THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE:
Roe – Our Lead DJ, Roe White, has been with Utopia for 14 years. Roe started as a dancer, became an Emcee, but his true passion -- where he found his love, was behind the DJ booth on the turntables as our lead DJ. Roe is also an owner of Utopia. The fate of the company lies largely in Roe's hands as he cultivates and trains new talent. Our talent keeps us alive and we're thankful Roe has played such an integral role in our company for over a decade.
Nick – The Emcee that has been with Utopia since the beginning. Nick's versatile dancing style includes hip-hop, bboy, krump and break dancing. Nick's passion is connecting audiences to a mission through the energy of collective dance and celebration.
DJ Sweet Tea is a talented emcee and DJ who loves to provide a twist on the typical DJ experience. Her experience as a dancer and choreographer and her love of music inspired her to spin records. Her personality lights up a room and will leave you with a night to remember if she’s your emcee or DJ for the night.
