edgefactory and the entire team responsible for producing the Orlando United Remembering Our Angels event at the Lake Eola Amphitheater on June 12 2017 have been nominated for a Downtown Orlando Partnership Golden Brick Award.
Last year, June 12, 2017 was designated as “Orlando United Day – A Day of Love and Kindness” by the City of Orlando and Orange County Government in collaboration with Pulse. The entire day was dedicated to honoring the memory of the 49 innocent Pulse victims, supporting survivors and recognizing the compassion and love that was displayed by the Central Florida community following the tragedy.
At 7pm that evening, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, Orlando Commissioner Patty Sheehan and other community leaders and elected officials held a special remembrance ceremony at Lake Eola Park titled Orlando Love: Remembering Our Angels. The event was conceived by City Commissioner Patty Sheehan and produced by Orlando Marketing Maven, Karen Brown. Additional services included AV production from OPAV, music and entertainment production from Orlando icons Blue Star (of Blue La La Entertainment), D-Squared Productions, and Performer Stuff, with video and graphic content production and execution by Edgefactory.
“If a picture is worth a thousand words then the images, graphics and animations provided by Edgefactory at this city sponsored event were worth millions,” says Remembering Our Angels Producer, Karen Brown. “I will personally be forever grateful to Edgefactory and their amazing team for the beauty and grace with which they so lovingly handled this event.”
“We are grateful that Edgefactory could be a part of such an important community event,” says Brian Cole, President & CEO Edgefactory. “The opportunity to add elements of love, hope and remembrance at a time when our city still needed comfort was quite humbling.”
The Golden Brick Awards are presented by the Downtown Orlando Partnership to recognize projects that have positively impacted Downtown Orlando in the prior year.
The 29th Annual Golden Brick Award Luncheon will be held March 30, 2018 at the Marriott Downtown Orlando.
