Los Angeles, CA, January 17, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- On Thursday, January 12th, The Long Beach Convention Center played host to the 32nd Annual Gala Awards presented by Special Events Magazine. The closing night’s ceremony was attended by event professionals, from around the globe, where Pauline Parry, founder and president of GOOD GRACIOUS! Events accepted the award, Best Off-Premise Catered Event, on behalf of her outstanding team for “In the Spirit of Hospitality,” a three-day affair for Rolls-Royce.
The multi-day Concours D'Elegance in Pebble Beach, California, gave guests the opportunity to view and test-drive the new Black Badge by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Befitting the upscale setting, 1,500 guests enjoyed breakfast, lunch and all-day refreshments each day at a majestic central coast mansion overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Lead by Chef de Cuisine, Joanne Purnell, VIP guests enjoyed a private cocktail reception hosted by the Ritz-Carlton, a six-course dinner with elite wine pairings and impressive buffets that reflected foods from three new Ritz-Carlton properties around the world. Invitees enjoyed a mirrored salad wall, a “California Market Experience,” a risotto bar, and silver mirrors bearing colorful French macarons resting atop beds of chocolate nibs – all befitting the style that one would only expect from the Rolls-Royce brand.
“Congratulations... When work as fine as yours is in contention, it elevates our competition,” said Lisa Hurley, Director of Content, Special Events Magazine | The Special Event Show.
Recognizing the industry’s best and brightest event planners, Special Events Magazine’s advisory board bestows the prestigious award to companies and planners who have produced spectacular events over the past year and who have set the new bar for innovation. Upon accepting the award, Pauline graciously recognized all those key team members who made it all possible, “To all of you, it couldn’t have happened without your hard work and effort. Thank you.”
