St Mary Gala
Background: Founded in 1956, St. Mary Medical Center (SMMC) serves the High Desert communities. The SMMC Foundation supports the hospital through monetary and in-kind donations.
Challenge: To get donors excited about its annual gala, the SMMC Foundation likes to send out an invitation that promotes the importance of the event. Though the gala is meant to be a fundraiser, the Foundation shows attendees a good time every year, providing dinner, drinks and dancing to a live band.
Solution: For its nineteenth annual gala, we designed an invitation that was a work of art in itself, making the gala seem like the event of the century, not just the year. The Foundation was so pleased with our work, they asked us to create an invitation for next year.
