glamping 2017

For the second year in a row, Marnell Companies participated in the NEWH Annual Fundraiser, Glamping 2017. We were one of six hospitality firms who participated in the “Chateau” Challenge for this event. Each canvas Chateau is 10’ x 12’ on a platform 12′ x 16′ and was given a theme. After a random picking event, we received the Mexican Cantina theme and we used our favorite vendors to help us glam up the chateau. This year the exterior area in front of the Chateau was also part of the space to design.

The focal point of our design was a 30’ carpet runner that brought visitors to our glamping Chateau. This runner was designed by our creative design team and hand fabricated by our vendors in China. Inside of our chateau was decorated with handcrafted artifacts acquired in Mexico; these consisted of handwoven baskets and ceramic skulls. The exterior of our chateau also featured an illuminated entrance that lit up the night sky. All of the items donated by our vendors were auctioned and all of the proceeds for these auctions go towards the NEWH Student Scholarship Fund.

There were about 300 attendees this year which was held at the Zion Ponderosa Resort, near the edge of Utah's Zion National Park.

This year our team was: Jeremy Morse, Juan Medrano, Nate Edwards, Richard Cabrera, and Sharon Ly.
