“Receiving our second consecutive Special Events Gala Award is an amazing honor,” says co-owner Jon Retsky. “Over the past fifteen years, our success has been built on creatively transforming empty spaces by employing innovative solutions and designs. We are proud Got Light has been recognized as an international leader in event lighting design.”
The United States Conference of Mayors’ 83rd annual meeting opened with a spectacular gala at San Francisco City Hall, and closed with a Centennial Celebration on the steps outside. The Conference is an extraordinary event that brings together local and national corporate, political, civic and philanthropic leaders. The Got Light team created an evocative design for simultaneous performances by the SFGMC – San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, John Fogerty, Kronos Quartet, Basil Twist, Beach Blanket Babylon, and Patti Austin. Some VIP politicos included Nancy Pelosi, Willie Brown, Mayor Ed Lee, George P. Schultz, and more.
