This summer, Sunnybrook Next Generation hosted its annual Argyle Affair and Canadian Audio Visual firm EpiQVision was there to support the important event for the 2nd consecutive year.
Argyle Affair is a signature event for the organization. Previous events have raised over $460,000 over the past two years in support of Sunnybrook and this event was critical to continuing the powerful and lasting impact on patients. The beneficiary of this year’s tournament was Sunnybrook Research Institute, an international hub for life sciences that is improving and saving lives through groundbreaking discoveries.
The event took place on July 7 to a crowd of hundreds at Arcadian Loft. The theme was a tribute to the works of famed artist Andy Warhol. This premiere fundraising event for Toronto’s young professionals, produced by Ink Entertainment, featured stunning decor, inspired culinary delights, incredible music and cutting edge entertainment. A Gallery exhibition and live art performance by Jessica Gorlicky was one of the highlights of the night. And the D.J. had the guest dancing all night long!
EPiQVision has sponsored the technical production and audio visual support for this fundraiser for the past 2 years and this year, took full advantage of the opportunity to get uber creative with the theme: Saturday morning cartoons meets Andy Warhol.
“This project allowed us to really open our toolbox of creativity. A vibrant palette of colours within the theme let us have fun with some of our lighting instruments. Utilizing great fixtures from Chauvet Professional and Martin Lighting, we were able to illuminate the space, saturate it with colour, and stay within budget. To ensure Audio clarity and maintain a nice even balance of sound, we entrusted our d&b AudioTechnik sound system to provide DJ DAF’s soundtrack. One of the most unexpected highlights of the evening was Jess Gorlicky’s custom painted DJ Booth. We used a variety of LED fixtures to back light that feature.”
“Working on a budget to maximize the guest experience, colour and vibrancy was needed. As a result, we enlisted Jessica Gorlicky to “paint the town” by incorporating her vast collection of artwork with a live performance. She worked well with the theme Art of Night, and the concept of Andy Warhol’s factory and the art being in a lounge club environment.
The cereal bar provided guests with a wide variety of dry cereals which was complimented by original paintings of some of favourite 1980’s boxes, transforming a space “
