“WOW. From now on my rider will include a 300-foot ceiling and
an insane bike sculpture…this is quite a club!” Comedian Dana Carvey quipped at the start of his set last week.
The glorious MFA was all decked out in fancy finery as a funky upscale nightclub for Abiomed’s Opening Celebration. It was a magical transformation…the first of its kind at the MFA! Glittering lamps from Tommy Wholesale and stunning floral sculptures from Marc Hall Design sparkled in jeweled lighting by High Output.
Magicians strolled the floor mesmerizing guests with sleight of hand tricks, while other groups gathered to enjoy the red-clad torch singer from Music Management nestled in cozy lounge seating from Be Our Guest.
The evening was filled with surprises…from the enormous marquee A-B-I-O-M-E-D letters created by New England Country Rentals, to Bailey’s milkshakes and truffle fries, to the appearance of Dana Carvey himself (the headliner is a tightly held secret)…this company knows how to thank its team.
How fitting it is that the night was such a brilliant transformation, since transforming lives is exactly what Abiomed does. This year’s meeting celebrated the unprecedented success of its Impella heart pump, and the unparalled mission of the company to “Patients First.”
A company that does such serious, life-saving work deserves to kick back with a night of laughter…cheers to you, Abiomed!
