On November 5, 2015, Krislyn Design was proud to partner with City of Hope’s Corporate Philanthropy and Universal Music Group’s Global Communications teams in the production and design of the 2015 Spirit of Life® Gala.
The event hosted 1,300 guests for dinner and entertainment in a 35,000 square foot structure erected in the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium Parking lot. We are more than pleased to report that the Spirit of Life® campaign raised over $6 million dollars to help fund research and treatment of cancer, diabetes and other serious diseases.

Building City of Hope's Spirit of Life® Gala
The production timetable for the City of Hope Spirit of Life® Gala on November 5, 2015 was tight, requiring precise coordination of vendor schedules and layering of elements to maximize the hours allotted for the installation and strike of structure, rigging, decking, flooring, audiovisual, lighting, rentals, and furnishings. The vendors and crew worked collectively and diligently around the clock for 156 hours from the dropping of the first truck of cement ecology blocks to doors opening to guests.
