Last fall we had the pleasure of working with Elite OC Productions, a full service event production company that specializes in innovative design and concepts, venue transformation, and event management, on the UCI Mind’s Time of Your Life Gala.

From Elite OC Productions:

UCI MIND’s Time of Your Life gala, themed “Toast to the Holidays – Then and Now.” Held at The Hangar at the Orange County Fairgrounds, the nearly 500 guests were introduced hourly to a different holiday, as the venue served as the stage for a 180-degree projection of visual video experiences, including Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving, Holidays at The Lodge, and a New Year’s Eve countdown in the Big Apple. Seated in white suede lounges, as in a private club, guests were captivated by the panorama visual experience, an Orange County first.

Halloween had its place too with candle-lit jack o’lanterns and two scarecrow stiltwalkers, who danced and interfaced with guests. The Holidays at the Lodge sequence took guests to a cozy lodge setting, complete with a raging fireplace fire and a stunningly decorated Christmas tree. Models wearing furs and warm, snuggly outerwear from MaxMara completed the comfy scene, while on stage a quartet of Rockette-type Santa dancers did their famous high kicks and a quintet of carolers sang songs of the season. The New Year’s countdown came complete with balloons, confetti, party hats, and cabaret entertainment by talented singers and dancers.

At Elite OC Productions they strive to give their clients the most accurate portrayal of our design ideas and concepts for their events. They design storyboards with the actual colors, fabrics, pictures of the furnishings, and other design elements, so our clients can see and touch the proposed theme and décor components.

A further exceptional service they offer are custom hand-drawn event renderings that feature the design, décor, and layout of an event and provide a glimpse of the look, feel and flow of it. The depictions help translate the proposed colors, design, furnishings, entertainment, and schematic to help our clients visualize their party in great detail prior to the occasion. When compared to the actual event, the likeness is awe-inspiring.

We recently worked on the Time of Your Life event with Elite OC Productions. The charity benefit raised money for research at UCI Mind, an organization dedicated to finding answers to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The event allowed guests to go back in time and experience some nostalgia; all while enjoying cocktails, food stations, silent and super silent auctions, a room transformation tour, wine wall, entertainment and dancing. Guests were transported back to the 60′s in spaces like The British Invasion, Supper Club, Futurama, Motown, TV Land and Surf’s Up!

About UCI Mind

It is the mission of the Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, UCI MIND, to research ways to make memories last a lifetime by advancing knowledge of brain aging, encouraging early detection and treatment of cognitive impairment, and by promoting brain health.

In 1906, Dr. Alois Alzheimer, a German neuropsychiatrist, discovered the disease that would eventually bear his name and now affects more than 5.4 million Americans.  Today, hundreds of researchers and clinicians at UCI MIND are dedicated to preserving brain health.

UCI MIND advances knowledge of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s through cutting-edge research directed at:

  • Identifying the causes of these conditions and factors that affect their progression,
  • Finding ways to effectively treat and prevent cognitive decline,
  • Pinpointing lifestyle factors that promote wellness and successful aging,
  • Translating laboratory findings at the research bench into real-life settings for people in clinical trials.

Community-minded, UCI MIND serves as an expert source of education about aging and cognition in Orange County.

Internationally recognized for its studies on Alzheimer’s disease, UCI MIND is one of 29 prestigious Research Centers funded by the National Institute on Aging, one of 10 California Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers, and a leading national site for clinical trials.

UCI MIND is Orange County’s only federal and state designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research and Diagnostic Center.

From bench science to the clinic, UCI MIND is researching ways to make memories last a lifetime.
