Event Support for Successful Fundraiser

Hearken Creative provided lights, sound, and video support for the Children’s Advocacy Center’s first ever (and hopefully annual) fundraising gala on the gorgeous grounds of the Masonic Home in Covina, California on October 12, 2014.

We worked with the organization, as well as rental companies, the featured band, and on-site personnel to make sure that everything ran smoothly — from power concerns, to the ability to hobnob over the live music, to making every word intelligible — from honorees and speakers. We received numerous accolades from event planners and the 200+ attendees, stating that this was the smoothest and best-sounding event they had attended.

Photos from the event are below. The young (but very good) band “Them Kool Kats” [ http://www.themkoolkats.com/ ] was the featured entertainment. Hearken Creative provided them with onstage monitors so they could hear everything, and they had a great time working the crowd.

It’s remarkable what Hearken Creative can accomplish — from branding, to websites, to video, to event support (sound and lighting). Why don’t you give us a call for your next project and see how Hearken Creative can help you?

Todd Roberts, lighting designer extraordinaire

So I’m very impressed by what my brother has been able to do. He started his business right about the same time as I started mine. And now, he’s being covered in trade publications as a true expert in his craft. Congratulations! Here’s a quick excerpt:

Although he’s created light shows at some of the world’s most glamorous events, LD Todd Roberts maintains a distinctively low profile and simple lifestyle.  The veteran designer still enjoys unloading rigs at his events, and would prefer to relax with his family on the beach than anything more glamorous. Todd’s work is intricate and often edgy, but his personal life is unpretentious and rooted in basic values. He wouldn’t have it any other way.
