full service and proud of it.
"Yes!" That's pretty much our answer when it comes to any marketing solution our clients might request or require. We'll run a 10K in their target audience's shoes to know who needs to experience what, where, when. What's newest, what's next? Already on it and into it. And BTW, we never, ever forget the service part of full service.
special opps? oh yeah.
FANTASY TABLE DECORATING COMPETITION DRAWS THE VALLEY'S BEST INTERIOR DESIGNERS FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Public invited to attend IFDA's Third annual "Tableau" in support of Ryan House
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (September 15, 2009) – The International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) will host its third-annual "Tableau" designing, dining, and gaming event on Saturday, November 14 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort to benefit Ryan House.
Tableau 2009 will feature the Valley's best interior designers competing for honors with lavish, over-the-top tables, which can be viewed and voted on by the general public on Saturday, November 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The designers and invited guests will then dine at these tables beginning at 5:30 p.m. Following dinner, attendees will place their bets – Monte Carlo-style – at gaming tables.
"By day, the general public can kick off the holiday season by viewing and voting on some 30 extraordinary tablescapes. By night, attendees will literally become part of a dining fantasy," explains Karen Sugarman, chairwoman of the IFDA Arizona chapter's Tableau event. "They will dine with interior designers at truly unique and breathtaking tables, then travel – at least for a few hours – to Monte Carlo for casino-style gaming and the chance to win fabulous prizes."
Tickets for the public viewing are $25 each, while tickets for the evening event are $125 each, when purchased on or before October 15 and $150 each after October 15. The evening ticket price includes table viewing and voting, holiday fashion show, dinner (at which tablescape winners will be announced), "fun money" for the gaming tables (including blackjack, roulette, craps and slots) and raffles for fabulous prizes. All tickets can be ordered online at
Proceeds from the event will benefit Ryan House, a pediatric healthcare resource that will provide quality short-term respite and palliative care, as well as appropriate therapies, activities and support to children with life-threatening conditions and their families. The first of its kind in the Southwest, Ryan House is scheduled to open in Phoenix in 2010.
"The development of Ryan House would not be possible without the exceptional support from our community and charitable donors, such as IFDA," said Nancy Martin, executive director of Ryan House. "We look forward to the completion of the home and the opportunity to help children and their families."
