Interested in purchasing more tickets for Iconic Cocktail Co.? Tickets will be available for additional beverages at 1 ticket for $4.00 OR 3 tickets for $10.00. 25% of funds raised from additional tickets purchased will be donated to HALO Animal Rescue. Located in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, HALO Animal Rescue is a safety net for thousands of homeless dogs and cats each year. They are a no-kill facility, which means they never euthanize an animal because they have run out of room, but it also means they are limited in the animals we can take in at any given time. The animals are lovingly cared for while they are prepared for adoption, and then they are adopted into loving homes. We believe in this charity and it’s purpose, and are very excited to raise funds to donate.

The Ivy Event is excited to promote growing a stable and healthy creative community that is lush and grows rapidly when surrounded with like minded individuals who are interested in building supportive friendships, establishing new relationships and supporting local business. The Ivy Event is ready to create a network of roots within the creative industry.

The whole point of our events is to put some empowerment in this world! We want you to feel awesome, shine on and dedicate one whole night to celebrating the powerful creative person that you are, and also meet some new friends who are all about supporting and empowering each other. No pressure, no expectations! It’s one hell of an event and a chance for you to meet some other creatives from your city, introduce yourself and make new connections that actually MEAN something, all while having a great time!

The Ivy Event: Happy Hour with Prickly Pear Paper

As part of our ongoing process with The Ivy Event, we were so excited to roll out some small events to continue to grow the community and create a safe space for people to come, mingle with others from their city all while in a fun, curated and comfortable setting. 

If you’re looking for a community event, we hope that you consider joining us at any of our events through The Ivy Event. We encourage our attendees to branch out, chat with new people and introduce themselves to other creatives from around Arizona. It isn’t easy to network, but we want to create a safe & FUN environment for our guests to feel comfortable enough to do so.

Tickets included hand crafted cocktails by Iconic Cocktail Co., beer from 12 West Brewery, food from The Uprooted Kitchen and Fire & Brimstone, a cute take way gift featuring custom buttons from Jar of Buttons and one free raffle ticket.

We raffled off a ONE NIGHT stay at The Graduate Hotel in Tempe, breakfast for two at The Normal Diner, as well as a box with local goodies! All funds raised from our raffle were donated directly to the Central Arizona Shelter Service.

The Ivy Event: PHX | OCT 2016

Some of you may know about Gather AZ, but some of you may not. We changed the name from ‘Gather AZ‘ to ‘The Ivy Event‘, which is an exciting movement to promote growing a stable and healthy creative community that is lush and grows rapidly when surrounded with like minded individuals who are interested in building supportive friendships, establishing new relationships and supporting local business. The Ivy Event is a curated event that invites the most innovative people from any city to party together. The whole point of this event is to put some empowerment in this world! We want our attendees to feel awesome, shine on and dedicate one whole night to celebrating the powerful creative person that they are, and also meet some new friends who are all about supporting and empowering each other. No pressure, no expectations! Our last event was on October 20th, 2016 at Soho 63 in downtown Chandler. We had an amazing team of vendors who we would have been completely lost without all of the hard work that they did behind the scenes on our event. We are already planning our next event and will release more information soon. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures & the video from our latest.

The Ivy Event

Last year, we planned a really fun event called Gather AZ! It was essentially a big party for wedding & creative vendors in our great state of Arizona. The original event was scheduled for October of 2015, but needed to reschedule due to a storm in Arizona. Of course, the one night we plan to throw a large outdoor event, it storms and floods the streets. We ended up needing to push our event out about six months, moving it from Fall of 2015 to Spring of 2016. In March, we through our Gather AZ event and I don’t think it could have been more fun!! We had food trucks, a bar truck, dancing, a raffle, desserts and so much more! We thought that putting an event to help promote community over competition was really important, and we wanted a chance to meet our internet & social media friends face to face. There are a ton of different creative and talented people out there who have so much to offer and what a better way to put individuals together than by having a fun event. The event went perfectly and we can not thank all of the vendors enough for all of the time and effort that was put into the event to make such an awesome night.
With all the reflection of the last event, we decided we would like to throw another event. We had such positive feedback from our first event that we felt like it was necessary. We have decided to completely re-brand the event and hope that in the future, we will be able to travel with this amazing concept.

We are thrilled to announce, The Ivy Event! As Ivy vine grows, it sets roots into the soil deeply and densely, and creates a network of roots which binds the soil, helping to prevent erosion and slippage on slopes. Ivy has the ability to climb almost any vertical surface, clinging by means of aerial roots. Once established Ivy plants will rapidly cover any wall or fence with lush evergreen foliage. The Ivy Event is excited to promote growing a stable and healthy creative community that is lush and grows rapidly when surrounded with like minded individuals who are interested in building a community, establishing new relationships and supporting local business. The Ivy Event is ready to create a network of roots within the creative industry.  The next event will be on October 20th, 2016 at The Vintage 45 in downtown Phoenix. Tickets will be going on sale soon, but for now, please take a peak and reflect on the last event with video from Erica Marr Films and photographs from Danielle Apple Photography. Cheers!
