Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Gala
Doing our part to make it right
Founded by Brad Pitt in 2007, Make It Right Foundation started out by building green, affordable homes for displaced residents of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward following Hurricane Katrina. Since then, the nonprofit organization has expanded its focus to build innovative homes, buildings and communities for people in need across the country.
After partnering with Solomon Group in 2012 on its inaugural gala, Make It Right chose our team once again to help set the stage for its second, star-studded fundraising event.
Acclaimed event designer David Stark dreamed up a striking design for the gala. Working in tight concert with his team, Solomon Group provided the A/V production services necessary to bring his concept to life.
Our team’s challenge was to adhere to a very particular design aesthetic, while delivering a first-class production that would dazzle the gala’s celebrity and VIP attendees … and accomplish it all on a nonprofit’s budget.
By the end of the evening, Make It Right’s mid-seven figure take set a record for a one-night, nonprofit fundraising event in New Orleans. Best of all, Brad was thrilled with the production.
