Each year, the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation hosts its annual fundraising event, including both a silent and live auction as well as exclusive wine tasting experiences and more. It is one of the most prestigious fundraising events in Southern California, featuring VIP lounges and live entertainment. Over 2,000 guests attended this year’s auction with 75 wineries, distilleries, and breweries represented.
In close collaboration with auction and event organizers, our team produced and installed a wide variety of print materials that helped bring the venue to life.
About the Event
Featuring iconic artwork, exclusive wines, one-of-a-kind trips, and more, the Manhattan Wine Auction directly benefits local education initiatives and programs. Since its founding in 1983, the Foundation has raised over $85 million for local schools. According to the organization’s website, MBEF’s support supplements state funding to help “inspire learning, enrich teaching, and promote innovation and academic excellence.” Over the past three decades, the Foundation has positively impacted over 20,0000 students in the Manhattan Beach public school system.
100% of students in Manhattan Beach public schools benefit from the organization’s efforts and annual fundraising events. You can learn more about MBEF at https://mbef.org/.
A3 Visual Activates the Manhattan Beach Country Club
From manufacturing event graphics to providing on-site installation and removal services, our team played an active role in transforming MBEF’s venue. We also supplied a variety of hardware necessary to activate the space.
All banners were UV-printed on durable vinyl, ranging in size from 36-120” wide to 60-96” tall. Our graphics were placed throughout the event, from the branded “step-and-repeat” welcome backdrop to sponsorship signs, pole banners, and more. Especially for high-visibility events like fundraisers and other private benefits, sponsor visibility is crucial.
