Grab your dress, bowtie and strike a pose for this semester’s gala themed: The Oscar’s! Here in the PRSSA club we like to do everything big especially gala because it is a huge celebration to recognize the graduating seniors and all the other member's handwork throughout the semester. This semester’s networking officer, Anum Aamer and her committee have been vigorously planning an extravagant night for everyone. This event will be at the BluePrynt Restaurant & Bar in the heart of Midtown Sacramento at 6:30pm on Saturday, May 14th. With an Oscar themed ticket to set the mood for gala, designed by future Vice President, Thomas Hanns, everyone will be preparing for a night they will never forget!
- For more of an insight on the event, I took the opportunity to interview Anum to discuss more about gala:
1. Why did you choose to have an Oscar theme for Gala this semester?
“I thought it would be a very classy affair and that’s what I envisioned for this semester. I also chose it because it is going to be a very interactive experience regarding the nominations and voting and I want everyone to feel like they were part of it.”
2. What are you doing differently this semester’s Gala than any other semester?
"This semester I chose one place that provides everything instead of going to multiple different outside vendors. It’s more organized, cheaper, and less of a hassle this way."
3. How did you and your committee set all this up?
“I began working on Gala preparations over winter break and had the location before PRSSA meeting started. Once I had the theme and location set, my committee and I got to work on decoration ideas, price of ticket sales, and how to advertise it.”
But the fun does not end yet! During the event there will be nominations for: Best Dressed, Class Clown, Most Likely to Open a PR Firm, Best Entrance, etc. Stand out and encourage your friends to come up with the most unique entrance for the night! Voting will take place during that night and winners will be announced. Also, PRSSA members who are graduating this semester will be handed their Spring 2016 stoles as well. Don’t leave the event without grabbing your graduating stole!
Get ready for a fun night the weekend before graduation and join us at PRSSA's Oscars at the Gala for a night to remember.
