Grown Up Cotton Candy Chef-Action Station

Knowing most guests at this outstanding cocktail party would be craving dessert, we thought the most sugar-laden treat would be a popular choice. Indeed, the sweet spun sugar found at the cotton candy bar was a huge hit. Bringing out the childhood playfulness that can get lost in the professional world, these fun sweets kept the party going without a worry.

Tying together the cotton candy cravings with a fresh flare of adult taste for traditional desserts and alcoholic beverages, our brownie lollipops wrapped with “whiskey” cotton candy and mint cotton candy wowed guests.

Trendy Bar with Electric Energy

Lit up and ready for action, the bar was a popular place. Well-displayed bar snacks such as popcorn, nuts and cracker jacks kept guests coming back for more tasty drinks and good conversations. A great selection of beer and wine helped close out these incredible alumni’s weekend with a rightful cheers to their accomplishments of raising over 100 million dollars.
