Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley and Bay Area Event Specialists Give Back with a Dream Event Awarded to a Community Hero

July 31, 2020,
Palo Alto, Silicon Valley, U.S.A.

Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley is in search of a deserving community hero to gift the ultimate special event. The Hotel has partnered with best event companies in the Bay Area to honour a local hero who has continually served on the frontlines or volunteered time to go above and beyond during the pandemic, but who may have had to postpone or cancel their wedding, milestone birthday, graduation party or other special occasion.

One winner will receive a dream celebration worth USD 50,000 complete with luxury venue, amazing food and beverage, event planning, gorgeous florals, lifestyle photography, and videography services to capture their celebration. Providing services for the Community Hero Giveaway is an opportunity to thank first responders and other community heroes in a meaningful way.

“We are empowering people to nominate (or self-nominate) a community hero who we could provide a fully specialised intimate event,” says Florian Riedel, General Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley. “It could be your friend who has been delivering food to elderly; a neighbour who spearheaded home schooling for local kids; a first responder; or someone you know who is making positive impact and who has put themselves above others during this difficult time.”

When safe to do so, the once-in-a-lifetime event can be held on an agreeable date until December 31, 2021. Every last detail of the event will be overseen, and the winner and their friends and family can focus on enjoying every moment of their special day.

Brimming with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive views of the San Francisco Bay, the winner can select the SkySuite, an intimate residential-style space located on the top floor of the Hotel. Or host the event at the open-air Quattro Restaurant and Terrace, suitable for a group of up to 50 people.

Executive Chef Martín Morelli will customise a restaurant-quality dining experience that explores the best of California’s notable producers and purveyors and dedicated Four Seasons staff will ensure exceptional service throughout the event.

The lucky hero will have dreams come true with personal expertise, entertainment and lighting from Gatsby Entertainment Group, the Bay Area’s most exciting entertainment movement for private, social and corporate events. Bringing the event further to life, the experienced team at Flowers by Edgar combine floral, lighting and draping for stunning and magical floral and event creations.

MP Singh Photography and Kurtela Video Productions will capture special moments of the event and memorialise them in digital formats to enjoy for years to come. Singh specialises in wedding and event photography, while capturing each event’s unique story through his lens. With strong attention to detail, Sean Kurtela takes a creative approach in helping clients remember the biggest day of their life.

“The best of the best event vendors have come together to create this once-in-a-lifetime event for an essential worker,” says Noelia Roblero, Assistant Director of Events at the Hotel. “We are so honoured to work with them to bring a phenomenal event to life and shine a light on some of the amazing and brave people within our community.”

Nominations can be entered here from August 1 to September 15, 2020. The winner will be announced October 15, 2020. To view contest rules and details visit here.
