With summer coming to an end, fall gala season is rapidly approaching. And if you’re hosting a fall gala or fundraiser this year, chances are good you’re already planning for your big event.
Creating a memorable event isn’t easy—it requires preparation, attention to detail, extensive networking, and lots of logistics. But with the right support, your event will be one people won’t soon forget. That’s where we come in.
Engledow is Indiana’s premier event specialists. And our experience speaks for itself. We’ve done fundraisers and galas for some of the biggest, most prestigious companies in Indiana—and in the United States. But keep in mind we can handle any size event—everything from a small private school to a multinational corporation—and we’re happy to work with you whether your guest list is 50 people or more than 5,000.
If you’re hosting a fundraiser, we understand that your event is about raising money, not spending it. So we’re happy to work within your budget to ensure you won’t break the bank on event costs. Our event planning specialists will always keep cost effectiveness in mind—and make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck.
When you work with Engledow on an event, we can play whatever role you want us to play. If that means handling every aspect of your event’s logistics—tables, chairs, lighting, decorations, backdrops, architecture, entertainment, flogos, food, drinks, etc.—we can do it all. But if you’re only looking for us to handle one particular aspect of your event like décor, we can do that too.
Putting on a successful fall gala or fundraiser means raising your brand’s profile. And creating a professional, exciting event that people want to attend is a great way to enhance brand awareness. When we work on events, we don’t want your guests to feel obligated to come—we want them to look forward to coming. And by showing them a great time, they’ll look more favorably on your organization and, chances are, will be more likely to support your cause.
We’ve done galas and fundraisers all over the country, including in Massachusetts, Florida, Texas, California, and virtually everywhere in between. But some of our favorite clients have been right here in Indianapolis, including the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. Their annual gala is an excellent example of how hosting a great event year after year can translate into a major increase in attendance and buzz.
One final point to consider: very few people can go into a room or venue and conceptualize what the space is capable of. But since we’ve been handling event logistics for decades, we can instantly see the potential in any environment. And our staff is familiar with the ins and outs at all of Indianapolis’s premier event locations, including The Roof Ballroom at IRT, the Murat, the JW Marriott, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, The Ritz Charles, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Zoo, and Union Station among others.
