AWG's brings the fire (and drums) for the IRF 2016 Fundraiser / by Devon Padgett

AWG Destination Management, a 20 year leader in event planning, decor, design and logistics recently produced the Welcome Night Events for the Incentive Research Foundation's annual fundraiser held on June 3, 2016 at Green Valley Ranch Resort. 

The theme of the evening was Arabian Nights featuring entertainment never before seen in Vegas. Headlining the night was the Drum Machine, an illuminated canopy of electronic drums and symbals played by Shannon Ellinas.  Ellinas recently relocated from South Africa to Las Vegas to pursue his dream of bringing his music to the masses in America. Shannon's drum machine can be booked through AWG and be experienced in the video below or at drummachinedj.com. Ellinas played alongside "Violin Girl" Amanda Marks who brought her own unique musical flair to the evening. 

During the live auction, attendees were dazzled by a choreographed dance ensemble who performed atop a spinning apparatus in full costumes. After the conclusion of the Live auction, guests were directed outside by a team of friendly "flight attendants" with light wands who led the guests past african drummers, fire performers and LED Poi spinners to an elegant dinner that showcased the collection of dining options at Green Valley Ranch.  Guests could design and make their own sandals at the sandal station or interact with a live monkey inside the monkey tent. Over 300 guests in all attended the event which was part of a 5 day IRF Education and Incentive Invitational.

"AWG was honored and thrilled to be a host sponsor of the 23rd annual event which exceeded goals by 143% for scientific research into incentives and motivation for business internationally to improve individual performance and overall organizational efficiency”, commented AWG President Kellie Hanley.
