Red Carpet Entrance for Darling Homes at Angelika Plano

Guests at a special recognition celebration at the Angelika Plano took a trip to "Hollywood" and were greeted by a Dallas Light and Sound red carpet entrance earlier this month. Red carpet and velvet roped stanchions created the exclusive look sought by Darling Homes and Bar 10 Events, who managed the function for Darling Homes.

Held at the Angelika Plano, this private, afternoon event turned up the glam with a Hollywood style movie premiere entrance. In addition to providing the memorably entry, Dallas Light and Sound supplied black velour pipe and draping to mask off unused areas of the sleek, art house movie theatre.

Red carpet and pink carpet entrances and carpeted seating and lounge area are a specialty of Dallas Light and Sound, and are available for stand alone installations or as part of a larger event decor package.

Afterglow Attendees Enjoy a Wow Moment - Elegant Lighted Entry Area

Stunning florals by Shane Walker Designs and a lighted, draped entry welcomed Black Tie Dinner guests this November to the "Afterglow Event" - held in the 11th floor Presidential Suite at Sheraton Dallas downtown. Guests enjoyed a "Wow" moment from the instant they opened the suite door and stepped inside. Beautifully uplit sheer drapery created the most successful Afterglow entrance ever in honor of the 30th anniversary of the dinner.

Don Gaiser and 60 of his friends organized Afterglow, which took place following the Federal Club Black Tie Dinner. Event underwriters and select friends were also treated to a preview early in the evening, where they were able to enjoy the suite in relative comfort. Bar 10 Events provided staffing and bartenders for the preview and after functions. Guests at the late event experienced an elegant reception area leading to a no-holds barred hi-energy lounge.

Lighting and audio services from Dallas Light and Sound entertained the hundreds who visited the suite for the 5 hour duration of the late party. Don Gaiser's legendary after function has followed the Black Tie Dinner in all but one of the last 20+ years. More than 3,000 attend the Black Tie dinner, with nearly a third partaking in the Afterglow festivities.

North Texas Women's Brunch Addresses School Bullying - State Senator Wendy Davis Speaks

North Texas Women's Brunch Co-Chairs and Organizers
at the front door of the Mascolo Mansion
On June 17, 2011, Texas Governor Perry signed into law House Bill 1942 relating to bullying in public schools.

The passage of this anti-bullying bill was led by women in the Texas House and Senate and was driven in part by the testimony of and lobbying by the mothers of children who committed suicide due to persistent bullying.

Equality Texas helped guide the legislation through the Texas House and Senate as part of their overall mission to promote civil rights for all residents of Texas. To celebrate this victory and to raise awareness of continuing issues surrounding bullying, Equality Texas held a fundraising brunch on October 30th at the M Mansion in Dallas. In an especially touching gesture of appreciation, and to raise awareness of the issue, the mothers of Jon Carmichael and Montana Lance attended. Lance was 9 years old when he hung himself in the restroom at his school in The Colony earlier this year after persistent bullying. Carmichael was 13 years old when he took his life in 2010 after years of bullying related to his height. Carmichael lived in Joshua, Texas.
Dallas Light and Sound was proud to provide decor and audio services for the North Texas Women's Brunch at the M Mansion, sponsored by Equality Texas. State Senator Wendy Davis served as keynote speaker for the event, which focused on accomplishments made in the fight against bullying in schools. The event featured brunch, music, casual modeling and an informative presentation on the work that re.mains to be done to fight bullying.

This pictures above and below show "Soooo Red" linens on highboys with tasteful florals in a view from poolside at The M Mansion. A dozen of these tables dotted the mansion grounds and are shown here leading up to the rear of the beautiful estate. The tables and florals were part of a decor package designed and supplied by Dallas Light and Sound.
Senator Wendy Davis and several other speakers addressed a crowd of more than 100 from the back portico of the M Mansion. Dallas Light and Sound's audio installation allowed the presentation and background music to spill out over the entire grounds, without using speakers mounted on poles which would have distracted from the magnificent view of the mansion. Background music programming for the function was also supplied by Dallas Light and Sound, with an all-woman song selection of vocals and jazz to compliment the extraordinary setting.
