Significant Events is proud to be working with the Dallas Hearing Foundation to produce their first annual fundraising gala on December 19th, 2009 at Union Station in Dallas. The DHF has provided cochlear implants, hearing aids, auditory-verbal therapy, and educational support with over $1 million in services since 1997. To educate the public about their philanthropy and provide a little taste of the fantastic December gala, the DHF hosted a Gala Preview Party at Hickory Street Annex. Generous vendors provided delicious food and drink, beautiful lighting and décor, and informative displays. To learn more about the Sounds of the Season gala, visit www.soundsoftheseason.org.
Significant Events partnered with Fight to Win Promotions for their second Mixed Martial Arts show, “Colorado vs. Nebraska.” Over 2,000 spectators packed Denver’s Softball Country Sports Pavilion to watch 11 fights and displays of fantastic mixed martial arts skills, with each fight being a match-up between a Colorado fighter and a Nebraska fighter. As you can imagine, the crowd was energized supporting their respective home states! Food, drink, great music, and excitement filled the venue, and there was plenty of action and excitement for everyone from VIP’s to general admission. For those who could not attend, the fight was available to watch via live Pay Per View webcast! And the after party at Club Vinyl kept the fun going once the fights were over!
Significant Events was thrilled to be working with one of the nation’s largest construction companies on their annual Technology Services Conference held in Grapevine at the Hilton DFW Lakes Hotel & Conference Center. With the Technology Services team spread across the country, they knew they needed someone reliable here in Dallas to make the 3 day conference run smoothly and efficiently so they could focus on training their employees on new software and not organizing the event itself. Significant Events secured the fantastic hotel, arranged the Audio Visual needs, planned the catering for the guests, prepared the door prizes, arranged the transportation to and from the airport, prepared welcome packets and agendas, and coordinated the nightly entertainment. On the first night guests were treated to a cocktail reception followed by a gourmet dinner, and on the second night another cocktail reception was followed by a formal plated dinner and a hilarious live show from Ad-Libs Improvisational Comedy Troupe. During the conference, the employees knew that they could rely on us to troubleshoot and resolve any issues that arose, adhere to the logistical schedule that had been created, and manage last minute changes with ease. The conference was a great success!
Significant Events partnered with Fight to Win Promotions to debut Fight to Win’s first amateur Mixed Martial Arts show, “Revolution.” Over 2,000 spectators packed Denver’s Softball Country Sports Pavilion to watch 11 fights and displays of fantastic martial arts skills.

There wasn’t a bad seat in the house, and the after party at Club B-Low, kept the night going into the wee hours.
American Eurocopter sure knows how to throw a great party for their valued employees and their families! And their first step was to hire the trusted event coordinators at Significant Events! This company picnic for 1,200 had to entertain both kids and adults, and there were awesome activities for all! In fact, there were so many activities to choose from, that it was hard to try everything! Guests of all ages could take helicopter rides in American Eurocopter’s signature helicopters; view luxury cars and motorcycles owned by the employees; play Bingo, miniature golf, horseshoes, and Human Foosball; get airbrush tattoos or caricatures; or try their strength on the Hi-Striker. Young kids also had the opportunity to do arts and crafts, get balloon art made, participate in hula hoop contests, jump in the Bouncy Houses, and create fun bubbles with gigantic bubble wands! Teenagers and adults had a blast playing volleyball and spending time in the Inflatable Jousting Ring and the Gyroscope. Everyone got a delicious lunch of burgers and hot dogs fresh off the grill with salads, sweets, and fresh fruit as side dishes. If lunch didn’t fill them up, they had a chance to snack on popcorn, cotton candy, and sno cones. As you can see from the pictures, smiles and fun were a welcome reward for the hard work these employees do everyday!
After 50 years of marriage, an honorary celebration for Ding and Lily was definitely in order! The happy couple flew all the way from the Philippines to celebrate their anniversary with their friends and large family. Special tributes from the children and grandchildren were the highlights of the afternoon, and guests enjoyed excellent food, drinks, and dancing! It was a special time to reminisce over old memories and make some new ones!
Espionage and intrigue were the orders of the evening as friends came together to celebrate Dan Barclay’s James Bond inspired Casino Royale 50th Birthday Party! Guests dressed as legendary Bond characters and enjoyed casino games provided by Cohen’s Casino Parties. As they played Black Jack, Roulette, and Craps, guests dined on gourmet hors d’ourves, desserts, and martinis, shaken not stirred of course! Outside on the patio, guests could lounge by the fireplace, shoot pool, and smoke hand-rolled cigars prepared on site by a professional cigar roller. The party was decorated with custom made themed posters of Secret Agent Barclay which have to be seen to be believed! It was a party that Bond himself would have been proud of!
