The Triangle NACE held their annual Top of the Table Gala at the beautiful Events at Newton Square facility in Raleigh, NC. This event was to benefit a very worthy cause, the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. Approximately 200 people attended and were wowed by imaginative, intricate and awe-inspiring table settings. From waterfalls to fishtanks to swings to a live women as the centerpiece, the NACE members who entered the contest went all out for this event.
This was my first year covering the event and, quite literally, I didn’t know where to begin. There were 20 tables at this Top of the Table Event and the venue, Events at Newton Square was packed full of NACE members and visitors from local hotels, wedding vendors, caterers and photographers. Having never covered a Triangle NACE event previously I was very pleasantly surprised with how nice, accommodating and pleased everyone was to have me there shooting for the magazine. I can’t wait for next years event and I do believe I may look at joining the Raleigh NACE chapter.
