Branded lighting rentals for Make a Wish's Walk for Wishes

Posted on December 07, 2015

Branded lighting rentals Branded lighting rentals


AV Connections, Inc. of North Carolina was once again so very pleased to support the Northwestern North Carolina Make a Wish Chapter's 2015 Walk for Wishes Fundraiser with branded lighting rentals. This 5k walk and run road race which winds through the Festival of Lights was held for the sixth year at Tanglewood Park in Winston-Salem. The $120,000 raised so far goes to grant wishes to children with terminal sicknesses in Western North Carolina.

Make A Wish's Walk for Wishes begins in Forsyth's County park jewel, Tanglewood and ends at the Tanglewood Ampitheater. Inside the ampitheather. AV Connections, Inc. helped to kickoff the holiday season with this event by providing dramatic lighting on a uniquely shaped scrim cover, including magnification of the speakers onto the backdrop, and delivering to the field of over a thousand people, clear sound and music. The scrim cover and accompanying branded gobo lighting adds atmosphere, seasonal excitement, and a touch of elegant but not overwhelming branding to the Walk for Wishes.

When holding a charity, or especially a business, event where many people will congregate, a great lighting design which maximizes branding and your message are critical. Often a spotlight or a bit of uplighting will be considered, but the event is truly only a half without a bit of show stopping remember-why-you're-here messaging at center front. AV Connections, Inc. is pleased to make sight visits with you as you plan your event and to discuss the best plan for lighting and maximizing the time your guestes have before you.

Ceremony AV for 9/11 Memorial in Clemmons, NC

Posted on September 15, 2015

Ceremony AV

Sometimes the smallest events have the greatest impact on us, as was the case with our ceremony AV work for the Clemmons, NC September 11th Memorial. We were, of course, humbled and moved to be asked to join in this event and provide audiovisual support to the speakers. We were even more moved to witness this powerful display of our nation's beautiful flag atop the Clemmon's Fire Department tower ladder.

The events of September 11, 2001 across our nation are without a doubt, the most tragic and memorable events of our modern era. We judge ourselves, in our day to day work, against a standard of excellence. On a day such as this, when called to broadcast a message of memory, agony, and the intrepid determination to rise from ashes as a country, we naturally stop to ask ourselves if there is a greater standard to offer than just excellence. The sacrifice of all the lives taken on September 11, 2001 and all those lost avenging them, is so great and extreme, the little we have to give hardly seems enough.

But it does indeed matter that communities large and small gather and bow heads, and it does matter than in all our hearts we desperately wish with unreasonable fervor, that we could turn back time. That we could undo on behalf of every life lost, every child left behind, every parent who lost a son or daughter. In our powerlessness is promise: We promise to remember, we promise not to forget, we promise to teach our children. All of us at AV Connections - among us a New Yorker whose hometown was devastated by the events of that day - will never fail to keep the promise and broadcast the message. You are not forgotten, we've not lost you in vain.

What a night, we were asked to provide party performer AV Rentals NC at the historic Lasater Mill House in Clemmons, North Carolina.

She was asked to perform at this very special birthday party and for that, you need great AV. As you can see, Maxine got all the guests on to the dance floor that evening. It was a little touch of stardom for everyone on attendance as well as our group.

North Carolina lighting rentals by AV Connections

Posted on March 08, 2015




Our North Carolina lighting rentals change the face of an event or party. While lighting is critical at night for any type of gathering, it is not to be underestimated at any time of day. Many North Carolina lighting rentals clients use strings of cafe bulb lighting or indoor colored-gel uplighting to define the perimeters of an event space or to add a festive atmosphere indoors.

At this beach-side wedding, the couple's vows were said toward the dusk time of day.  For that event we were happy to provide audiovisual rentals for their guests to best hear and witness their vows. When the reception moved to the house, it was still day light. But, the lighting design helped to create a party atmosphere while the sun was still up and turn it into a twinkling fete by nightfall.
