I highly recommend Distinctive Events for your event. We used them for our annual Awards Dinner for our best selling associates from across the country last year and they did a fantastic job.
I design and coordinate many events for our company, have worked with many similar events groups across the country, and can tell you that Distinctive Events is a stand out group and I would work with them again any time. They were great to plan and work with, did an excellent job executing everything we discussed… and more! From decor for dinner including linens and fabulous flowers to our stage decor… everything was terrific.
I have very high standards for our events and they brought everything I asked for to life with a great taste level, humor, and patience! I don’t think you can ask for more.



Sha Sha Harnik and her team planned and designed our VIP event, which was the premier event for the grand opening of our new replacement hospital.
This event was a black-tie affair, using tents on the outside and the lobby of our hospital. Because of the professionalism of Sha Sha, not one detail was overlooked. Everything was perfect – from the food, decorations, bar service, and music choices. Their planning and design skills were exceptional. Prior to the event, we were very impressed that Sha Sha continually kept us informed. There were no last-minute surprises.
East Cooper Medical Center had 10 events prior to the opening of the hospital, and we wanted to ensure this event was perfect. And it was.



Every year, Sha Sha oversees the entire event design of [our] Chefs’ Feast, from theme creation to room layout, including the design direction of all collateral materials. From the minute guests enter the event to the time they leave for the night, they are escorted through Sha Sha’s magnificent design vision for the evening.
At every level of planning, Sha Sha is intimately involved. Her calm nature, patience and flawless execution of every aspect of the event, create the warmest of environments for the variety of people involved in the planning and production of Chefs’ Feast. Sha Sha respects and listens to all ideas, while motivating the committee toward the best decision for the event…
…Hopelessly devoted to the quality of work she is involved with, she has continuously demonstrated dedication and a high level of customer service to the Lowcountry Food Bank and our Chefs’ Feast team. Sha Sha’s exceptional communication skills, positive presence and passion for her work, result in a partnership built on trust and respect.



I have known and worked with Sha for well over a decade…she and her team assist me and my own colleagues and customers in the design, implementation, and execution of imaginative and inspired events, décor, and design. She is a leader and a coach and knows how to work with deadlines and budgets. She works well with committee-driven direction…and consistently makes correct decisions when left to her own devices. And her background provides a rich palette of knowledge and experiences that allow her to produce both subtle and vibrant canvasses for her customers.



Our relationship [with Distinctive Events] began in 2005 when Sha Sha was employed with a local hotel. That year, she helped make our second annual Leukemia Ball an overwhelming success and experience– going out of her way to create a classy event while helping us keep our expenses down. After we discovered the next year that she had bought her own business, we readily changed venues and have relied upon Distinctive Events since then for their creativity, attention to detail, and expertise to WOW our guests each year.
We are confident that our 2012 Leukemia Ball will continue to be a great fundraising success with the assistance of the talented team at Distinctive Events. It is such a pleasure to work with them on all levels!
