Make A Wish: Made an impact!

We were off to an extremely windy start around 6 AM on a Saturday morning. The day was set with a buzz as the Make A Wish crew members and volunteers gathered around the Great Park grounds, bustling around nervously as 25 mph winds were gusting through and through. The white tents that were already set to stay were being swept up off the ground. The morning was a bit rough as we were all trying to gain perspective on how we should have the event set up before the rest of the guests were set to arrive by 7:30 AM. Despite the weather being a circus, everyone decided to move their location next to a building that sheltered the winds from sweeping in. Ah! Finally a solution and the day will continue to go on - no matter what! The energy of our determination was contagious and we all cheerily continued to move our things into the grounds.

As the clock hit 7:30, I could see more volunteers and walk-a-thon candidates coming in. The audio team had started setting up the stage and a couple emcees from Make A Wish took the stage and mic to introduce themselves. They started to hype everyone up with jokes and energetic speeches for those that were attending. At one point, a costumed lobster came out to dance with everyone and wave to passing people - it definitely created a lot of smiles.

The whole event unfolded beautifully as walkers gathered around for our American anthem. Everyone around placed their right hands over their hearts to pledge allegiance to the flag and it was refreshing to have everyone together - different ethnicities and people from all kinds of backgrounds, standing united for the same cause. We felt honored and proud to be at such an event that was trying to raise money for the kids who are battling or have battled for cancerous issues.

Thank you again Make A Wish members and those that have attended this with us. It was a blessing to experience this as we were glad to have supported and also be reminded of the little things in life! We had an amazing time just being there along with numerous other vendors and participants who came out!

Lots of hugs and smiles,

Pilates: Plank Contest, raffles, and the photo booth!

For those that are curious about what types of events Happy Cow Photo Booths does, we specialize in mostly weddings and corporate events. (Of course, all other types of events are welcome for us to work in). 

We had another collaboration with Club Pilates for their members appreciation event to kick it off in Chino Hills and were excited to work with them again! Those that were in Club Pilates came along with supporting family and friends to celebrate the raffle event giveaway. It started to get busy as more members started to fill into the studio as the HCPB crew started our setup.

We were finished with setting up and Amy [the owner] started to give away tickets for people to win items for pilates exercises like weights, balls, and other trendy equipment items. They started off with a planking challenge for the members and someone won it by planking for almost 5 minutes! 

We had a pretty great turnout with all the members going from vendor to vendor (there was a shop stand for snacks and retail clothing available) and then people jumped into our booth before leaving.

Kids were loving our props and we used our photo booth "tilt" to make the little ones stand out in the pictures. 

Best part? There were two girl scouts that participated and we ended taking a few boxes home for ourselves! Like the picture states below... #BESTDAYEVER!

Wine Walk

We were invited to join Club Pilates on their new studio grand opening at The Shoppes at Chino Hills and take part in the Wine Walk event happening that very same day! The Wine Walk is an annual get together for all vendors and shops to participate in having guests sign up for a community fundraiser - provided with food and wine to celebrate and extend the proceeds to charity.

Amy, the owner of Club Pilates, also participated in the Wine Walk so we were glad to see how it all went down behind the scenes. Upon arriving, the team set up shop within her pilates studio in the back and every time a participating Wine Walk guest strolled in, they jumped into our photo booth to keep the pictures as mementos.

Some of our favorite moments are below so check them out! A big thank you to Amy from Club Pilates for letting us be involved with your staff.
