Planned Parenthood Los Angeles (PPLA) held their annual fundraiser at the Pacific Design Center on October 6th, 2016 in West Hollywood, at Spectra by Wolfgang Puck. SenovvA has proudly been supporting this charity for over 10 years with professional, top-notch production staff and equipment at a reduced cost. SenovvA Project Manager Chris Veluz said, “The idea is to put more of the money into PPLA’s work and less into the production of the fundraiser. But the quality of the production still has to be world-class. That’s where we come in.”
SenovvA provided audio, video and projection equipment/support for the annual fundraiser. Partnered with Mastermind Production Group for audio and lighting to make Tony – and Grammy – nominated artist, Sara Bareilles’s live stage performance stand out. Slide presentations along with prepared videos complemented the presenters as they addressed a room full of entertainment industry executives and professionals. “We wanted to insure all production elements would meet the high standards of SenovvA and exceed client expectations,” stated Chris.
In addition to supporting PPLA’s efforts through his work with SenovvA, Chris is also a personal supporter of the organization, and that made the evening extra meaningful for him. Chris shares, “There was so much passion in the room – a lot of fire! Planned Parenthood is on the front lines everyday and you could feel how much everyone cared.”
SenovvA Vice President Arianna Knapp explained, “Part of SenovvA’s culture is recognizing that our leadership and staff have a desire to contribute to important causes. We do that with our specialized support in a number of arenas, with organizations championing HIV/AIDS research, support for people living with HIV/AIDS, arts and culture, education in the Los Angeles communities where we are located, and Planned Parenthood.”
