corporate_sitesocal_01

Merryl Brown Events was delighted to partner with Bacara Resort & Spa to produce Site SoCal’s Snowy Soiree, a dance of epic proportions! We created a thumping, late night winter-themed dance party, deep in Jack Frost’s snowy lair, replete with hot gogo dancers and music that didn’t stop until 1:00am. The attire? Hot winter-white, of course!

“Great Event! The feedback we have received is that it was the best party ever.” —Kathleen Cochran, General Manager, Bacara Resort & Spa
