The Encore team at Crown Palladium outdid themselves recently, creating a feast for the eyes at the garden-themed ‘Where Exceptional Opportunities Bloom’ million dollar lunch.

Partnering with The Children’s Cancer Foundation, the team adopted a mixed media approach by decorating the space with more than 140, custom-made paper flowers and installing projection mapping on the tables with blooming flowers, creeping vines, rippling water and fluttering butterflies.

The stage was fitted out with four daisy-shaped LED screens, angled to tower over guests.

More than $2.1 million was raised at the event through guests bidding in a traditional auction.
