Nonprofit galas are one of our favorite types of events to host at our banquet hall in Orange County. Lyon Air Museum has had the pleasure of hosting a multitude of fundraisers, and we are always excited to help support a great cause.
We know how difficult it can be to plan a successful nonprofit gala, so we’ve asked some of our favorite event planners to give us their tips for coordinating a successful fundraiser.
Invite your guests to travel back in time and host an event with retro design and decor. What makes for a better retro party backdrop than Lyon Air Museum? The vintage automobiles and aircraft within the event space contribute to a retro event theme. There is even a 1940s Helms Baker Truck!
Lyon Air Museum is the perfect venue to host an airline theme event complete with pilot and stewardess servers, boarding pass invites, and suitcase props! Send out boarding pass invites. Setup a "bag check" table for when guests arrive and register. Choose from our preferred catering list for servers dressed in airline service attire (photo: The Turnip Rose servers). Additionally servers can push food and beverage carts around for guests to order snacks and drinks during cocktail hour. Create a fun centerpiece like flower stuffed suitcases.
The new year is here! With a new year comes a new set of events - be it a fashion show or a corporate event - it is time to start planning. First thing to do on "all things event planning" is choose a venue. What could be better than a hangar like museum with polished vintage aircraft? The clock is ticking and the facility rental rate increases February 1, 2015, so book now.
