Youth Outreach Services Spring Soiree at Germania Place
Chicago’s Youth Outreach Service is an organization dedicated to helping children, teens and young adults who face life’s challenges. MDM Entertainment had the opportunity to join them at Germania Place for their annual Spring Soiree to help raise funds and awareness. The party was complete with a DJ, room lighting and a photo booth!
A festive mood was created at Germania Place with up lighting that changed colors throughout the night. Spring colors, like purple, blue, green, yellow and pink, lit the walls to fit every mood of the night.
Youth Outreach Services also decorated the room with startling statistics and interactive information. From the Ping Pong Ball exhibit that showed the number of deaths in Chicago, to the anonymous “What Mistakes could have gotten you here?” survey, there was information in every corner and on every table.
The eye catching displays were also accompanied by flat screens, supplied by MDM. The screens showed inspirational quotes, shocking statistics and many YOS success stories for the guests all night.
The Art Gallery
Youth Outreach Services takes pride in their students and their programs, especial Art Beat which was showcased at the Spring Soiree. Three students, Michelle 15, Kenneth 18 and Markell 17, were asked to paint while at the event.
“I am nervous but excited to be painting here. I going to paint the Skyline for everyone,” said 15 year old, Michelle.
Art Beat is a support program that allows students to express themselves through art. They not only express their artistic skills through painting, but also through poetry, graphics, drawings, dancing, rapping, photography and music. The mission of this program is “Youth Reaching Youth Through Art.”
Youth Outreach Services also held a silent auction and a cork pull raffle in the Germania Place Royal Ballroom. The silent auction tables were lit up with pin spot lights and offered everything from cute pet supplies to sports tickets.
There was something there for everyone, especially when it came to the cork pull raffle. With a $20 donation participants were able to pick a random wine cork from a bowl and go home with a bottle of wine ranging in price from $9-$84.
The whole night was a huge success, especially when it came to the Photo Booth. All the guests lined up to take a funny picture in the photo booth from Photo Booth Express. There was a goofy hat / prop for everyone who was so inclined.
It was great too see so many people smiling for and supporting such a good cause. The whole night was a huge success, that MDM was proud to be a part of.
