Philadelphia Magazine Wine Festival Evantine Design Event Production

LOOKING BACK TO LAST WEEK’S PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE’S WINE + FOOD FESTIVAL at Lincoln Financial Field.

Held in Lincoln Financial Field’s stylish SCA Club, this year’s #PHLWineFest was another exciting event for Philly foodies! With more than 650 samplings of exclusive wines from around the world and delicious food offered from Philadelphia’s most popular restaurants including 1100 Social, Amada, Bank & Bourbon, Birchtree Catering, Crow and the Pitcher, Davio’s, Fat Jack’s, Laurel, Revolution Taco, this was one of the biggest city celebrations of the year! A portion of the event proceeds benefited Daisy Days, a month long campaign to raise funds and awareness for research and patient care programs at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

As usual, Evantine Design was thrilled to be part of this exciting community event!

TAKING FASHION TO ANOTHER LEVEL. With 1000+ Lucite chairs, some high tech stage production and the best cutting edge fashion designers in Philadelphia, this year’s Philadelphia University Fashion Show 2016 was a knock out event! Every year the students at PhilaU inspire the rest of the fashion world with their creativity and passion for fashion design. This year was no different with a combined audience of more than 1,800 industry representatives, alumni and friends in attendance at the show. Inspired by the students’ fabulous designs, the Evantine Design team, lead by our very own event planner Robert Canada, couldn’t be more thrilled to design the environment, set the stage and call the show. Bravo Robert on another production well done!

COMMUNITY: A Downton Abbey Evening Benefiting Breast & Prostate Health

December 8, 2015

TylerBoye__Breast Health Event Julian Fellowes Union League Evantine Design Brian Kappra

By Brian Kappra, Creative Director and Owner of Evantine Design

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE EVENING IN PHILADELPHIA! Last night at the historic Union League of Philadelphia, The Foundation for Breast and Prostate Health (“FBPH”) and Independence Blue Cross hosted an elegant evening of witty, insightful conversation, tasty cocktails and delectable bites with Downton Abbey creator and Academy Award winning writer Lord Julian Fellowes.

First and foremost, we thank our guest of honor, Lord Julian Fellowes for sharing his talents, wisdom and Downton story with us all wrapped up with a delightful bow. We also thank CNN anchor Michael Smerconish, a big fan of Downton Abbey, for conducted a fantastic and entertaining interview with Lord Fellowes. Michael tried to get the dish out of Lord Fellowes on the last season of the show, but, to no one’s surprise, the show writer was tight-lipped on what’s up for Season 6. Frankly, that’s just the way we want it! Additional thank yous go out to Brian Toner of Eventions ProductionsEddie Bruce, and of course, a GIANT thank you to Stewart Mahan and his hard-working catering team at the Union League for rolling out the red carpet and holiday cheer for the festivities!

As co-chair of the event, I was overwhelmed by the support of friends, clients {and client-friends!}, and colleagues who joined us at The Union League for this fun outing benefiting The Foundation for Breast and Prostate Health. Even though it was a Monday night in the middle of the busy holiday season, the response and support was truly heart warming. Both me and my co-chair (and the founder of FBPH), the lovely Shelley Schwartz, as well as the rest of the dedicated FBPH special event committee, THANK YOU for your generosity.  Just a few photos from the event, from our seasonal decorations to the delicious food and superb company kept in the storied halls of The Union League. Enjoy!
