For the inaugural event featuring ITV’s Dr Hilary Jones, i2detail worked with Fuelled Design to create a luxury cruise theme on board ‘The SS Spirit of Life’ embracing the exclusivity and luxury MRF desired. The venue was decorated in nautical theme embraced by the evening’s dance band and the i2detail Events team who surprised guests by dressing as crew. The entertainment and the exquisite food were themed to the various ‘ports of call’.
The event was such a success the charity engaged i2detail again in 2012 to create another glamorous themed event ‘A Night in Monte Carlo’ featuring actor and comedian, Norman Pace. Guests enjoyed a Casino de Monte Carlo Reception with thanks to The Team Challenge Company and danced the night away in ‘Casino Square’ to a fabulous Dance Orchestra.
i2detail’s ‘Pit Crew’ were on hand in the ‘Pit Lanes’ together with the Zisys AV production team to ensure every aspect of the night ran smoothly.
“Linn, What a wonderful evening it was. We could not have done it without you. You were amazing and the comments and compliments I received about the organisation and implementation were too many to count. You have set the gold standard and are simply the best!”

“Dear Linn, I would like to thank you for the perfect evening spent at The Balmoral last night. The evening was a great success. I was touched by the stories we listened to and I do hope our small contribution will go a long way to help people suffering from meningitis. Thanks a million - it was superb!”

MRF Scotland engaged i2detail to design and execute their inaugural fundraising event and following on from its success, a second themed ball.
Increasing awareness of the charity and putting it firmly on the Scottish radar was an important element of the brief. These events had to really stand out in Edinburgh’s already hectic black tie ball calendar and leave a lasting impression.
