The Navy SEAL Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises funding and provides support to American’s Naval Special Warfare community and its families. Their efforts provide our military families with financial support, education and are there to assist military families and get them the help they need when suffering the loss of a loved one.
To launch their inaugural gala, the Navy SEAL Foundation called on HONEYSWEET to create a fully immersive environment that celebrated the work and extraordinary risks and achievements of the Navy SEALs. At the VIP pre-party, we turned a new office building into a monument to the foundation’s work, with striking silhouettes adorning the many glass walls. As their guests entered the foyer to the ballroom, they were greeted by full color, life-sized prints of SEALs in action. To incorporate the full Navy SEAL story into the gala, we turned the ballroom into a virtual “Ops Room,” with multi-screen video projections on all sides depicting video footage of SEAL teams in action. During the program, patriotism and dedication to Military service shined through, as Toby Keith performed for guests and Taya King (wife of slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle) presented Clint Eastwood with the foundation’s Patriot award.”
By creating an epic event with an interconnected story line, HONEYSWEET helped the Navy SEAL Foundation make their inaugural gala an incredible success, bringing in more than $4 million from the exclusive crowd of over 600 guests and creating a truly unforgettable event for all that were in attendance.
"Erick is our go-to guy for event production. He is incredibly creative, intelligent and professional with tremendous resources and experience. For our enormously successful Navy SEAL Foundation fundraiser, his vision transformed our headquarters building into the perfect setting to host our event. Erick has a deep understanding of an event's goals and how to achieve them. He is also fun to work with and a great asset to any team."
