OUR ROLE

We joined the OEG team as Event Designer for the first ever Iron & Frost Gala for the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation which took place in October of 2017. Our ultimate goal was to convert Ford Hall, a 25,000 sq ft atrium, from an empty space into an elegant gala setting for over 700 dining guests and transforming the hockey arena into a wow-factor Vegas-style casino. Our tasks included developing the overall event concept, planning the entertainment, developing and monitoring floor plans, coordinating logistics, managing suppliers, overseeing the decor and entertainment budget and providing on-site production management support to ensure the installation and take-down of the event went smoothly.

THE EVENT EXPERIENCE

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOFC) started the Iron & Frost initiative to raise significant funds to benefit the local community. The 2017 gala offered guests an unforgettable Vegas-style Glitz & Glam dinner & casino evening in support of gala collaborators Edmonton Police Foundation (EPS) specifically to raise funds for their new EPS 24/7 Command Centre. Guests had a chance to bid on unforgettable items including an amazing southern road trip with the Edmonton Oilers. Artist Jessica Haas, painting live at the gala, offered to the auction two different large canvases of four Oilers — Connor McDavid, Adam Larsson, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Milan Lucic. After the formal dinner program, Vegas-style show girls welcomed everyone into the arena for a fun casino night that included a custom-designed ice scotch bar, frosted chandelier decor, led lit lounge areas, a photo booth and DJ entertainment. The Oilers players themselves were the dealers at the casino tables where guests gambled with “funny money”.
