We were so honored when THE TEEN PROJECT committee came to CC Events wanting us to handle their planning and decor for a charity event in March. The Teen Project supports and guides teens who have recently graduated from the foster care system who have no family and no place to go. The project offers free room and board and full college support to ensure no one ends up on the street.

CC Events was tasked with coming up with the theme and decor direction and we put our whole hearts into this great cause. Seeing as these young adults, mostly women, don’t have much to look forward to we knew we wanted the event to be cheerful. The theme we landed on was “Sparkle and Shine” and all elements reflected that ethos. From inflatable swans in the pool to sparkly tables and bright and cheerful gift bags and runway accessories everything sure shined bright!!

The event was held on the roof of the Westin South Coast Plaza and a silent auction kicked off the event. From there it led to an all teen Fashion Show with some of the girls from Teen Project as models. South Coast Plaza donated all the clothing with designer looks from Diana Von Furstenberg, Anthropologie, Free People, Saks and more. We also had game booths where guests could win prizes from Vans, Stance Socks, Birthday Gram and more and all money was donated to the charity. It was a great night and we raised over $25,000 for The Teen Project.
