Operation Smile | Red Pine Lodge | March 2015

Harvest Moon Events is proud to have been involved in this super-successful fundraising event; $500,000 raised! Every March, Operation Smile comes to Park City to raise money for their fabulous organization with a star-studded ski race and evening VIP reception in the mountains. And we have had the pleasure of designing the evening reception and providing ancillary services since the beginning, for the past 4 years. This year, as my team was doing coat check at the front doors, they received a special surprise.

In walked mega celebrity Lady Gaga–there to support her fiance Taylor Kinney, who raced earlier that day (her furry pink coat remained on her all night, despite the fact that my coat checkers would have taken great care of it!).

Lady Gaga was in good company with the other A-List supporters:

Chuck’s Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski and Ryan McPartlin, Chicago Fire’s Taylor Kinney, Night Shift’s Scott Wolf, TV Personality, Fashion Designer and Super Mom, Brooke Burke-Charvet and husband David Charvet, Parks and Recreations’ Retta, Vampire Diaries’ Michael Trevino and Claire Holt, About a Boy’s David Walton, Bad Judge’s Tone Bell and Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush.

Wish we had more photos to share of our design work here–the photographers were (understandably) pre-occupied capturing all of the familiar faces at the event. But you can catch a glimpse of our twinkle trees in the background–with Nancy Wilson of Heart singing hits from Heart and Neil Young.
