The 15th Annual Heroes Foundation Dinner was held January 17, 2015 at the JW Marriott Indianapolis. Heroes Foundation supports the cancer community, raising money for research and services. The Keynote Speaker for the evening was ESPN Reporter Shelley Smith, who is battling breast cancer herself.
The planning staff of Heroes Foundation wanted to have a band on the stage for the entertainment segment of the evening, but did not want their presence to distract from the more formal part of the evening. Markey’s, the on site Event Technology provider for the JW Marriott Indianapolis, designed a stage set that incorporated our “wave wall,” a 16’ x 6’ soft set piece that effectively hid the band’s set up and instruments on the stage during the program and was beautifully uplit with LED lighting. It served as the backdrop for speakers at the lectern. This was easily and quickly moved to reveal the band later in the evening.
Stumpfl screens on either side of the stage showed Image Magnification of the activity on the stage via Christie HD projectors, so all 550 attendees could easily see the speaker. Martin intelligent lights were used to color and texture the wall with the event colors, rounding out the lighting design.
