Community, corporate and non-profit fundraising events can be anxiety-inducing. We’ve worked with high-level non-profits, the State of Maryland, various city and county officials and even a Presidential Inaugural. These are occasions where you simply don’t get a second chance to make a good impression. We are sensitive to public image and we are retained year after year by organizations who know we ‘get’ this and because we deliver.

Community & Municipal Events
Community & Municipal Events
Festivals • Press Events • Rallies • Tourism Spectaculars
State, county and municipal events are unique. Public funding (maybe married to private donations), political figures and permanent first-impressions manifest in a spectacular set of expectations. R&R is practiced at managing expectations and missions, it is, quite simply, built into our DNA as a company.
Michael Phelps mania swept over the globe and back home to Maryland where R&R Events became the vendor of choice in the production and management of the Michael Phelps/Maryland Olympic Heroes event. Held at Ft. McHenry – R&R was tasked with bridging the desires and mission of state, county and city officials and marrying them to the parameters of the US Olympic Committee, the park service and private entities. The ability to sift through local regulations and requirements, contractual commitments, cultural sensitivities and bridging those with the desires of multiple production partners is – well – one of our specialties.
Does your event require random and various components?
- Podiums and/or auxiliary power? R&R knows every piece of equipment available in the mid-Atlantic region (it’s what we do – inventory: if we don’t have it, who does? Who can get it to us and who is reliable means you benefit).
- A three-story banner? We’ve got this.
- Props, staging, floral and other décor? Our warehouse, connections and experience can handle any request, no matter how unique or specialized.
R&R is a one-stop resource where you can hand us the event, or we can hand over something to you for your event. Oh, and the single most demanding tool in our box: managing personalities for you. Whether it’s the CEO or the mother-of-the-bride – we have seen it all, managed it all, and get the job done with an eye toward satisfying all of your toughest clients!
Gala Fundraisers • Employee Appreciation • Conferences
Conferences, employee appreciation, association award dinners, galas – corporate America invests in events that extend the company’s brand. Everything from what guests see at the front entrance to how the logo is represented are levels of detail with which R&R are keenly aware.
Working with high-level brands like the Baltimore Ravens on their 2013 Super Bowl Party & Ring Ceremony or the 2014 Army-Navy events surrounding the epic football rivalry – requires a level of finesse and sensitivity that our team is accustomed to when working with VIPs, celebrities, entertainers as well as exacting clients. All eyes in 2012 were on Baltimore for Star-Spangled SAILABRATION where we worked with Baltimore City, the United States Navy and other event team members which attracted 1.4 million visitors. Our team strives for flawless coordination with executives’ expectations, as well as in-house and field operations, in order to deliver the vision of the client.
What are you working on now? Office party? Golf tournament? Conference?
We can help you:
- Find a location
- Provide expert planning and management for the event execution (on-site)
- Create staging, décor, unique signage or audio/visual
- Construct just the right team of suppliers and vendors that fit not only your budget, but your pickiest internal client.
How do we do this? R&R is interested in your vision and what you are seeking to gain from your event. We discuss your goals and your audience. Are you trying to inspire, lead, congratulate, honor or raise money? We listen to you. Your event is about you, your company and your guests – not us. Our expertise meets your expectations and that’s how we deliver events that reinforce your brand, meet your goals and entertain your guests.
Silent Auctions • Bull & Oyster Roasts • Black-Tie Charity Galas
Professional fundraisers understand that there is a science to getting corporations and individuals to part with their money. R&R Events also knows that many of the folks who work on these fundraising/non-profit events are volunteers themselves – and often the fundraisers are done by committee – that’s a lot of opinions.
R&R Events has worked with Casey Cares and the VH-1 Save the Music Foundation concert to Baltimore Symphony black-tie galas, silent auction vignettes for the Ravens All Team Sports Gala – including themed-out silent auction tables – to an immersive maritime environment for Sail Baltimore’s formerly annual fundraiser, Beer, Boats & Ballads. R&R transforms environments, works within budgets and helps turn a profit for a lot of good causes.
Our goal is to create magic and meet goals, but the core of who we are lies in our big heart. Our principal team is comprised of animal lovers. Translation: we’re a sensitive bunch. That means we are in tune to the delicate balance of your budget – and, occasionally – we’ve been known to toss in some pro bono considerations where we can and if possible. Our tricks of the trade maximize your pizazz (and ultimately, your profits) for higher impact.
How can we help?
- Create event schematics that maximize your space and create better flow
- Set-up, transform, manage and/or break-down your event
- Execute an unmatched level of detail at every booth, table or seating area for a guest’s ultimate experience
- Negotiate the best deals with our vendors
- Have you pick from set vignettes, theme props, linens, inventive tablescapes, floral designs, auction accouterments
- Provide sound, stage and lighting?
R&R is the necessary component itself in saving you money & maximizing your profits. Wouldn’t you rather work with people that actually care about your overall event results? We do.
