Big Deal Company works with a variety of local nonprofits, helping to plan events that support their unique fundraising needs and challenges.
We were thrilled to be asked back as event support for the community-centric and summer-favorite Meals on 4th event, benefitting the work and mission of Meals on Wheels of Loveland and Berthoud. Our team of professional event experts worked alongside the Development and Program Directors of this downtown Loveland nonprofit to plan a fabulous evening full of food, fun, and FUNdraising, right in the heart of downtown Loveland!
This event takes place entirely outside, in the middle of 4th Street in the city block between Cleveland and Railroad. The planning for this event began back in January when streets were covered with snow and ice. It’s always a little stressful to work around what Mother Nature decides to do, but this year’s event - although smack dab in the middle of our Colorado Monsoons - was met with an absolutely gorgeous late Spring Colorado Day full of sunshine, blue skies, and comfortable temperatures!
This event captured the essence of generosity, community spirit, and philanthropy that is so prevalent in the Loveland and Berthoud communities. It was a huge success - surpassing Meals on Wheels’ fundraising goals, and bringing people from all walks of life together to support such a worthy cause!
Guests celebrated in style!
Meals on Wheels of Loveland and Berthoud is celebrating 55 years of service in Southern Larimer County. Their year-long celebration was weaved throughout this event, boasting an atmosphere of a 1950s/1960s soda shop diner.
Our team of event planners and the Meals on Wheels volunteers worked some decorative magic, creating an enchanting ambiance with period decorations and flair. Each table was adorned with a checkerboard runner, real vinyl records, and floral arrangements designed to look like ice cream sundaes!
Guests were encouraged to dress up in period costumes, and musical guests, The Steve Manshel Trio set the mood with period tunes from the 1950s and 1960s.
A True Expression of Community
This unique fundraising event is built on a large amount of community involvement. Guests are treated to a multi-course meal, with each course provided by a different local restaurant and drinks donated by local breweries and bars.We were honored to serve alongside the following Restaurant and Brewery Partners:
The event program focused on stories of hope and inspiration - told by a longtime Meals on Wheels Volunteer and Executive Director, Jeffrey Pomranka.
To further boost the evening’s fundraising efforts, local auctioneers led a special Heads or Tails game where attendees competed to win a special Date Night Air BnB package that included an overnight stay at a Downtown Arts District Bungalow and local restaurant and drink gift cards.
The evening concluded with a very successful Paddle Raise, collecting $23,600 in support of Meals on Wheels food and programs!
Thanks to the collective efforts of Mother Nature, the organization, vendors, volunteers, and the generosity of the community, Meals on 4th exceeded all expectations! The success of the evening will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the ability of Meals on Wheels to make a difference in the lives of more homebound individuals - feeding and supporting our community for generations to come!
