Like many people around the globe, we hesitated to pivot into the land of virtual gatherings wondering if anything could ever compare to the excitement of live events.

Charity & Fundraising Events
GALAS | LIVE/SILENT AUCTION | A’THONS | SPORT EVENTS | PARADES/MARCHES
Designing an effective charity function requires striking a delicate balance between creating an impressive event and making sure the bottom line is the big winner. At Carte Blanche Events we have years of experience walking this tight rope. We will help you to amaze your guests while keeping a steadfast eye towards maximizing the benefit to your beneficiaries.
WEDDINGS | ENGAGEMENT PARTIES | BIRTHDAYS | RETIREMENT PARTIES | CELEBRATION OF LIFE
Your event is personal to you; your guests are close friends or family; your event is a reflection of who you are. At Carte Blanche Events we understand this and we work closely with you to make sure your guests experience your personal expression. Whether it’s the most important day of your life or a significant birthday and you want to celebrate, Carte Blanche helps bring your imagination to life.
Since Carte Blanche adheres to the adage that we create our own reality, it is our intention to make it a green one. We believe we are all connected and that Mother Earth’s prosperity is our wealth. To that end we have created a sustainable eco-strategy for both our office and our client’s events.
What others say about us…
Our customer events were great. But I’m most proud of our company event. I can’t imagine a better event. It fired on all cylinders and exceeded my expectations. Thanks for everything.
Julie has helped us year after year to plan and organize the events for us, and year after year I get asked from upper management and executives ‘how will you beat this year’s event?’ and my response is always ‘when I have Julie on my side, we will be sure to beat it and exceed your expectations’ and that statement could not be any more truthful.
If you are planning an event Carte Blanche is, bar none, the event planning company you need to hire. Julie’s creativity, nimbleness and responsiveness to making our 40th Anniversary gala a great success was incredible. She helped us deliver our vision from concept through to execution, no detail was missed. Not only is she easy to work with but she always found creative solutions and made sure we stuck to budget. There was never a task too big or daunting to tackle. On the night of the event, everything was taken care of as the show was in her hands and we did not have to worry about a thing!
Julie and PwC have worked together for over 15 years, she’s planned, coordinated and executed our annual holiday celebration and other events. Julie is very detail oriented, creative and listens to what you want and the purpose of your event. She has exceeded my expectations on every event with the small details she adds and her creative eye. She is very budget conscious and constantly looks for ways for us to have the event we want with the budget we have. Great sense of humour, passionate about what she does, she’s been amazing to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
