We want to share with you an amazing company that is changing the way events get wrapped up – literally.

Our team at Venue Logic Chicago knows that we only have one earth to live on and we need to take care of it and protect it in every way that we can.  We have partnered with an exciting special event service called “Special E”. This unique green business “rescues” items which are left over and discarded from special events, then repurposes them in ways that benefit our planet and people in need within the very same community where your programs take place!

If you get the RESCUE PACKAGE. The Special E team will “rescue” items that are left over from your event and deliver them to people in need.  For example, let’s say you have flowers at your event, they will deliver them to a local nursing home, cancer center or hospital and bring some much needed cheer to the elderly or people that are sick. Perhaps you have extra binders, note-pads, and pens left over from a company meeting. Their rescue squad will deliver these supplies to a local school that caters to impoverished and disadvantaged children.

The leftovers they rescue include food, flowers, candles, linens, decor, recyclables, and more. Following an event, they re-direct these items to family shelters, soup kitchens, cancer centers, hospitals, nursing homes, hospice facilities, assisted living facilities, veteran’s organizations, military families, schools and art programs for disabled and special needs children, disaster relief agencies, and a wide range of charitable and non-profit organizations.

There are also materials left over at the end of an event that won’t directly benefit people in need. Rather than letting these items end up in a local landfill, we’ll redirect them to our one-of-a-kind network of up-cycling artists who will give them a whole new repurpose in life!
