Performing at LA Live and opening the stage with a whimsical act before the Foo Fighters began their set was a dream come true. To have the honor to perform for such an impactful organization like the Children’s Hospital of LA was beyond our wildest imagination. With over 1,400 guests, this event raised 5.5 million for medical research, patient care and the needs of children.
Hosted by Tyler Ferguson, this beautiful evening honored Jimmy Kimmel’s charitable work for the institution alongside iconic Dodgers announcer Vin Scully and Hasbro. “So many children, from so many financial backgrounds are cared for so beautifully and with so much compassion,” Kimmel said of CHLA, his voice breaking with emotion. “We can never repay them, but we’re going to try.”
In it’s own words, “the Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution that provides pediatric health care and helps its patients more than half a million times each year in a setting designed just for their needs.
CHLA is a provider of more than $316.2 million in community benefits annually to children and families. As the first pediatric hospital in Southern California, CHLA relies on the generosity of philanthropists in the community to support compassionate patient care, leading-edge education of the caregivers of tomorrow and innovative research efforts that impact children at its hospital and around the world.CHLA is a nonprofit pediatric health care organization dedicated to creating hope and building healthier futures for children.

What better way to step into Spring than with a Havana Nights themed event. At Your Door Events planner Sara Hollande did a stunning job from the pineapple table tops to the event layout.

Heal the Bay is a phenomenal organization that aims to “protect the watersheds in which we all live.” A cause that is near and dear to the heart of the Follies (our primary location is in Santa Monica). Creating an immersive, 3 stage performance based on an art-deco nautical theme was a challenge, we attempted to bring a unique experience to their 1500 guests at their annual gala. High energy performance sets while guests entered, performers engaging with guests meandering during the silent auction, and high kicking it during the evening’s auction was a blast.

Anna Lucia Events conceptualized a stunning evening for the annual Tampa Museum of Art annual gals. Playing off the XXX anniversary or “Triple X” theme- the team at Tampa Museum of Art and Anna Lucia wanted to create a tasteful and fun play on the “Naughty or Nice” theme. With the exceptional artist Cristobal’s work on display during the event, we wanted to bring a wink and shimmy to their theme whilst bringing a twist on the showgirl. Nodding to the great iconic females like Eartha Kitt, we brought the glamour and nod to naughty, but stayed on the line of nice at the Pink Light District.
