On the evening of May 24th, The Friends of We Care Organization held their 31st annual Gala at the International Centre.
We are a proud Silver Sponsor of this worthwhile event. Joanne Cochrane of MPG sits on the Gala Committee, and works with this dedicated group of volunteers to ensure the technical expertise of the event.
Joanne (production and stage manager) and her production team – Greg Evans (lighting), Ryan Haines (audio), Sean Keeping (video, show direction) and Doug Williams (staging, soft good) worked diligently to turn a trade show hall into a glamorous Hollywood themed room. MPG provided full audio coverage with L'Acoustic line array speakers and flown subs, and the new AVID S3L console, Mac 700 moving lights were used for mood and ballyhoo lighting was used throughout. 5 large 16:9 video screens with 12K projection for IMAG and video content were set up, along with 2 stages for speeches and entertainment decorated with red and black velour.The room was completed with the elegant Austrian silk drape walls.
We have worked with Friends of We Care year-round on fundraising events, and this year's work has garnered more than $1Million Dollars to send Kids to Camp.
