Furnley House Foundation Summer Ball

The Event

June saw us take Winstanley House, Leicester and turn it into a stunning, glamorous Auction night for the launch of the Furnley House Foundation. The event was filled with over 200 guests, and hosted by local Celebrity Ian Stringer! The purpose of the evening was to bring clients and employees together, have an amazing time and raise money for charity Alex’s Wish, and second charity CALM- Campaign Against Living Miserably.

Overall, an amazing £40,000 was raised for these incredible charities, and raffle prizes included a stay at Winstanley House, and the chance to win a Maserati for the weekend! To top it off, there was a fantastic firework display after the three course dinner that was served.

What we did

To make the auction experience as seamless as possible, we set up a stage, and speakers around the room so that Ian Stringer was heard perfectly. Two 82″ LED Screens were used to visualise aspects of the night to the guests, including a presentation. To emphasize the ‘Dubai Nights’ theme, we strategically placed festoon lights and uplighters around the room, as well as LED Star Cloth to create a starry night effect. Purple and pink chair sashes and palm trees in planters added a classy extra touch. During the live auction, and to announce the grand total raised at the end of the night, Equinox spark streams were used to excite the guests!

Our experienced technicians ran the evening from start to finish flawlessly, a job well done and a positive night to be a part of!

What they said

“Tara and the team were incredibly professional and turned the night into magical event. Their knowledge, creativity and expertise in running events really helped us pull up an amazing event and raise thousands for the Furnley House Foundation, we couldn’t have done it without you.”- Stefan Fura (Founder of Furnley House.)

“When working with Hybrid AV it feels like we have recruited our own experienced event team. They worked alongside us like on of our team, helping us make the right decisions leading up to the event. Plan the event format and then most importantly deliver our guests a seamless experience. We look forward to working with them again!”- Stefan Fura (Founder of Furnley House.)

  • Hybrid Av have been supplying audio visual equipment to Leicester Tigers for over 25 years. I have personally been involved for the last 17 years on the events side of the business and have always had a good working relationship with their team. In addition to the general conference business that Hybrid Av support, we hold two end of year award dinners, one for our sponsors and one for our supporters, where Hybrid Av manage the AV side of the night.
    This year we have an additional commercial dinner which again we will bring Hybrid Av on board.

  • Without exception, the feedback we have had is that it was the best event yet. We threw a number of extra challenges at you and the team this year which you responded to calmly and without issue.
    There were many, many things that could have gone wrong with an event that becomes more complex each year and the important thing is that we can have absolute confidence that should something happen, it will be dealt with and resolved quickly and without fuss and your team give us that confidence.

  • I just want to officially thank you so much for making the Remembrance event at the NMA the best ever. Your guys on the day were brilliant, please pass on our thanks and gratitude in helping to make the event very special.
    The event was a massive success and I have received many messages from people saying how much they enjoyed the service.
    What we did this year was very successful and we hope to repeat it again next year.

  • Thank you so much for your help and support with the event last week. As you know it was a new client for us so we were keen to get it right!! The client was thrilled with all aspects of the service received, and your company really helped to elevate the image and professionalism of their event which is fantastic news!
    We are hopeful that we will be offered the opportunity to work with the client again next year so fingers crossed you will be part of all of that!

  • I cannot fault the fabulous customer service I receive from your organisation. I organise some very large events on a bi-monthly basis and one thing I do not have to worry about is AV and IT. The Technician (and I have to pay special thanks to ‘Jono’) is superb and we ask for him personally due to his knowledge and unflappable nature. I would also like to thank ‘Janine’ in the office – always extremely helpful.

    Business Administrator/PA, NHS
  • I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the work and efforts you put in last week at the Belfry.
    As per usual you were fantastic and provided a fabulous set both for the conference and gala dinner.
    I also wanted to say a big thank you to your team for helping with setting out the breakout rooms as the Belfry split down the room!
    I look forward to working with you again in the future 
    Speak soon!
