Project Description


The Lake Area Free Clinic provides medical care and practical information aimed at prevention for hundreds of people who would otherwise go without. Every year we donate our design services for their annual fundraising gala.

We wanted to try something a little different this time around and since the theme was ‘Tailgating Through History,’ we thought it would be fun to have the invite look like a sports pennant. The rsvp card was perforated and could be torn off to send back, but the recipient would have the sports pennant part left to help remind them of the event.

The eleventh annual Gala at Olympia Resort netted more than $104,000 to help fund more than a fifth of the Lake Area Free Clinic ongoing operations for 2015.

In October 2016, the LAFC Gala Invitations won a bronze award from the 46th annual Creativity International Awards. The Creativity International Design Awards is one of the longest running, independent advertising and graphic design competitions. See the award winning invitation on the award website.
