Annual Gala Invitation is a big hit for Witham Health Services Foundation

See the Witham Globe in action!

The Need:
On May 16th, Witham Health Services Foundation hosted its 11th Annual Gala.  This event offered guests an evening to enjoy an elegant dinner, fine live music and dancing as well as silent and live auctions. Since its inception in 1999, the Gala has raised more than $260,000 to support the mission of Witham Health Services.  This year, the event committee was looking for a new idea for their invitation.  They wanted something unique and creative, yet economically sensible.

The Solution:
Last year, Witham Health Services, received an unusual holiday greeting card from Key Bank, which folded flat into an envelope, then opened up into a miniature paper and plastic snow globe desk top display.  In February, after flat greetings had been filed or forgotten, this 3D design remained as both a decoration and a reminder of Key Bank. Brock Hesler, director of corporate development, called 3D Paper Graphics to find out if their patented ShowStopperTM globe greeting design could be customized and used outside of the holiday season for an Annual Gala invitation.    Hesler explained, “We had an event theme and a few images of the hospital, but didn’t really know how to execute our design ideas into the globe.  3D Paper Graphics made it so easy for us.  We just emailed a few pictures, along with the invitation copy, and their design team took it from there.  After a few emails to exchange creative ideas, we had an invitation that was guaranteed to capture the attention of the community.”

Brock Hesler reports that their globe-style invitations were well-received.   The event committee enjoyed receiving an enthusiastic response to the event and positive feedback on the design.  “The unique 3D quality of this invitation makes it memorable.  It is one that people will put out on their desks, reminding them of the benefits and efforts of our Foundation well past the event itself,” says Hesler.
