JKS Events served as the producer for the TCG Gala, coordinating venue logistics, stage design, food and beverage, décor, lighting, sound, rentals, and green room wrangling.
The theme was brought to life with wall to wall Astroturf, beach balls, surf boards, and hammocks. Guests were encouraged to take the fun décor items home with them!
