Hotbed 2016 - Cirque De Nuit

The photos from this years' Hotbed benefit are in thanks to Drew Altizer Photography, and what a night! The Hotbed Benefit is a gala hosted by the Drever Family Foundation to support charities focused on providing resources and educational opportunities to underprivileged communities.

Hosted by Sharon Stone

The fabulous Sharon Stone was host for the night, and her dedication to helping underprivileged children was a light shining throughout the night. The benefit supported Planet Hope:

Founded in 1993 by sisters Kelly & Sharon Stone, Planet Hope is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides help to homeless, abused, and terminally ill children. Planet Hope Programs include: Summer Camp, Educational Programs, and Prom Dresses for Prom Season, Food and Warmth Resources, Emergency Referral Programs and Hope for the Holidays.

Fabulous in Black & White with Raj Tents

The Black & White styling of our exclusive Raj Tents frame tent lining fit the theme perfectly, and created an elegant space to enjoy the evenings performance. The monochromatic colorway helped set the mood as a great backdrop to the lighting treatment which brought in an emotionally charged purple glow.

The evening festivities transformed the Giardini del Paradiso into a vintage French circus, complete with burlesque ladies on stilts, circus performers, and a man whose balance can only be described as hair-raising.

We have been a part of the Hotbed team since 2014, and every year we work with the benefit to create new and unique spaces. See some of the past years:
