As I have been volunteering my time for almost 20 years, I was honored to be asked to create the gala invitation to celebrate the 20-Year anniversary of The Gathering Place, a non-profit organization with the mission of: The mission of The Gathering Place is to support, educate and empower individuals and families currently coping with the impact of cancer in their lives through programs and services provided free of charge. The 20-year Gala also celebrated the wonderful work of their CEO and Founder, who was retiring.
The Gathering Place provided an initial concept that they had from a Save-the-Date card that they had previously created. I was asked to base the invitation design around this piece. I created celebratory illustrations in the same style as their save the date and provided several color theme options. Upon choosing the final color and design, I created a tri-fold invitation that held the response card, response envelope and was wrapped with a translucent belly band.
