Cascadia 2012 Gala

The much anticipated "Night at the Museum Gala" happened last week at Cascadia 2012, and what a magical night! You may recall this post - bonus points if you followed the Cascadia Blog & found this guest post by us as well! In planning this particular gala, PJ wanted to make it something guests had never seen or experienced before. A progressive scene-changing event was one part, entertainment was another; and when you put it all together guests will remember this night as a once in a lifetime experience!

There wasn't just one room for the gala, there were EIGHT environments guests found themselves adventuring through. Yes, it really was a museum! The fun comes from our story of why the museum was so magical:

“As the story goes, an Egyptian tomb was discovered and brought to Tacoma to showcase the curiosity of this ancient world. In doing so, the excavators and moving team have stirred up much more trouble than they had bargained for! The mummies have been disturbed, and a crate has been tipped over – unleashing a ghostly spell on the rest of the museum!”

Guests found themselves going through The Hidden Art Gallery, The Hall of Statues, The Ancient Rome Collection, The Lewis & Clark Expedition, The Wild Wild West Collection, The Hall of the Exotic Jungle, & finally ended the evening with A Naughty Night on the Nile!

Attendees came in costumes because they were part of the museum as well! Teddy Roosevelt was our official tour guide; why shouldn’t he have guided Amelia Earhart around?

To start the Gala, we produced a special program with a map and the itinerary to remind attendees to keep moving! As a progressive gala, rooms opened and closed throughout the evening.
