Dress for Success (DFS) hosted its fourth annual “Shop for Success” benefit this October at HELEN MILLS.

The Wildlife Conservation Film Festival (WCFF) has made HELEN MILLS one of its homes for the event which features over 75 short and feature films from 30+ countries. The films are grouped into 18 separate series and are followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and/or conservationist that helped create the film. The WCFF aims to to inform, engage and inspire audiences while advancing awareness of the need to protect global biodiversity. The festival features two children’s series on October 18th and 19th with both animated and gorgeously filmed shorts. Tickets available through BrownPaperTickets.com.
With the recent festival hosted by the New Yorker, other magazines are seeing how it’s important to produce their own events to engage better with their clients and sponsors.
The Hub Magazine hosted their 2nd annual Hub Live: The Brand Experience Symposium last week at the HELEN MILLS Event Space and Theater with two full days packed with great speakers. A few of the many speakers included Steve Battista from Under Armour, Tom Boyles from Disney Parks & Resorts, Simon Bradley from Virgin Atlantic, Lisa Macpherson from Hallmark and Mike Senackerib from Campbell’s Soup.
With an event targeted towards brand executives, you can bet that there was plenty of branding throughout the two days!
Sightsavers International celebrated World Site Day in style with gorgeous fall decor as part of their Million Miracles campaign to eliminate avoidable blindness. During the event, Sightsavers showed footage of their work in the field as well as a live stream of a Malawian man regaining his site after undergoing Cataract surgery (watch the moment here!).
In addition to an inspiring mission, Sightsavers did an excellent job executing a fall theme with a gorgeous color palette, creative floral arrangements, and unique touches. Below are a few photos from the event highlighting decor details.
