The Big Hero Gala, Oh What a Night!

Oh, what a night! In January, ACME had the honor of partnering with Big Brother Big Sister Columbia NorthWest (BBBS NorthWest) in the design and fabrication of their Big Hero Gala. The Big Hero Gala is the biggest annual fundraiser in support of their organization, and their efforts to mentor children facing adversity.

The night was incredibly moving from the outpouring of generosity from the Portland community in attendance, to the stories told throughout the evening of so many young people’s lives transformed through their connection to the program. It was indeed a privilege to witness and to be educated on how BBBS NorthWest builds bonds that change lives, enabling kids to reach their greatest potential through strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one relationships and a network of support.

This was ACME’s first year being involved with the Big Hero Gala, and we were thrilled with how the event came together. Our greatest passion is to allow our clients to DREAM big, and to then CRAFT truly original environments that CAPTIVATE and inspire. The hope for the custom items ACME crafted was for those in attendance to experience, in an organized and organic way, the journey a big & little take together and the immense impact of the BBBS NorthWest organization. We couldn’t be more proud of our team, and our partners at Forge Graphic Works, from design concepting and fabrication through to install, both teams were strategic in assuring that BBBS Northwest was fully supported.

Be a hero, visit
