Charge: The Alabama Bicentennial Committee wanted to find a unique way to celebrate Alabama’s leaders during the 200th Birthday of the state of Alabama. The vision of the Committee was to provide an experience where sponsors, elected officials, community leaders, and the organizing committee could come together and celebrate the achievements and the history of the state.
Solution: LRY provided a full-service event solution that featured many logistical items including the official Bicentennial Celebration invitation design and delivery, the official registration portal for RSVPs, the stage and set design, the official program production, and the post-reception experience. Our goal was to create the wow factor which included incorporating celebrities into the program which we secured and managed throughout the event experience.
Results: LRY provided the Alabama Bicentennial Commission with live production that featured:
- Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. Secretary of State
- Ruben Studdard, national recording artist, and American Idol Winner
- Miles College Choir
- A video presentation which featured:
- Tim Cook, CEO of Apple
- Jordan Fisher, Actor
- Fannie Flagg, Author
The event drew over 1000 attendees.
