Randi - Light the Night

Every fall, my team at Randi Events has the distinct honor of planning one of our favorite nonprofit events – the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk.  Held every year at Nissan Stadium, the walk holds a special place in our heart as we all know someone who has battled cancer, including myself. Several years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to take a step back from my company. No one knows the thoughts that go through someone’s mind when a doctor tells you that you have cancer, and no one can prepare you for the battle ahead. Being able to design this event and bring the Nashville community together is just a small contribution to finding a cure for this disease that affects so many.  Last year we designed the VIP tent, and this year, we were fortunate enough to design the entire event from start to finish.  Our team decorated every aspect of the event in LLS’s signature colors: red and yellow. We carried over this theme to the various food stations, coffee stations, a kid zone, and a selfie station that were all set around perimeter of the event.  The VIP tent featured soft seating, a signature meal by one of Nashville’s top caterers, and a full bar.  Charles Esten, the Master of Ceremonies, kicked off the night with a welcome and emotional testament to his experience with LLS.   After the traditional ceremonies honoring both survivors and families, the walkers were sent on their way, proudly caring the lanterns through downtown Nashville.  In support of this year’s walk, Nashville turned some of its landmarks red, including the pedestrian walking bridge and several downtown buildings.  It was a beautiful site to see and we are all already looking forward to next year!
