Did you know that several local caterers and event planners are part of the local NACE chapter here in Memphis, including Mahaffey? NACE, the National Association for Catering and Events, has chapters located all over the United States and is committed to providing networking opportunities, education, professional certifications, etc. to those dedicated to the catering and event planning profession.
The organization recently hosted NACE Experience, the NACE National Conference, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Mahaffey was absolutely thrilled to parter with the New Orleans NACE Chapter in supporting them as a host city for the conference. We helped in any way possible, providing linens, chair covers and chair sashes for several of the events over the course of the four day conference. Every event that took place during the conference was extravagant and beautifully portrayed the culture of Louisiana. There, NACE chapters voted on the new name, which changed from National Association of Catering Executives. We are now gearing up for the NACE Gala just outside of Memphis.
The upcoming gala is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 17 at Harrah’s Tunica Terrace Hotel, in Robinsonville, Mississippi, and is now open to the public! The event’s theme is Frost Yourself and will begin at 7:00 pm with a cocktail hour and silent auction. The gala will include a sit-down dinner with open bar and DJ Brian Teeter. Tickets are $75 per person and we would be honored to have you join with us as we ‘frost’ ourselves!
Stay tuned for pictures to see how beautifully the gala comes together.
