Individual/Personal GIANTS

Honor your Giant at The Giant Event 2016!

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."
- Oprah Winfrey

$225.00 Private Platform Honoree:

Deciding who to honor in the category of the Giant that changed my life may be harder than knowing how to honor them. We have that part covered for you. Can you remember the last time saying "thank you" felt like it was not enough? We sought and discovered a solution for you.

The Giant Event puts "thank you" in ways you can see, and compliments the words that you can hear.

Discover a new way to say, "thank you". The Giant Event takes on the responsibility for finding an elegant venue, a boldly tasty menu, stellar entertainment, awards, a red carpet reception, and more. We design an evening of honors with the sole purpose of uniting you with your Giant for an inspiring and memorable evening. The main theme of the event is gratitude.

TIP: When you are deciding on who to select from your past or present, or who you plan to seek as a mentor for your future Giant experience, consider that there is no limit to Giants honored on any one night. You don't have to pick one. Choose two or more!

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect the program to look like?

Each individual is different, but, there is one language that we speak that is the rising tide that lifts all boats, “Gratitude.”  The Giant Event is dedicated to providing it’s attendees with a, “Thank You, you can see!”  You can rest assure that the night has been tailored with “your Giant” in mind.  As a result, we have taken great care in designing a multi-layered evening complete with professional speakers, live music, awards, and all the welcome excitement that the red carpet brings.     

Do honoree’s walk on stage to get honored and are they allowed to give an acceptance speech? 

Honorees will not be giving an acceptance speech.  

Why is the event not handled like a traditional awards and honors ceremony?

On the evening of The Giant Event we will honor up to 100 Giants.  Most of the Giants being honored will have never met one another before the evening and each will likely have many things that they share in common, and many that they don’t.  The Giant Event is a public honors and awards ceremony, therefore we aim to cater to taste and respect the time of all that are in attendance.  As a result, we designed the ceremony around making every attendee feel like the “Giant”  that they are, and ensuring that everyone leaves motivated and inspired to greater acts of gratitude.  We discovered that by keeping the evening light, generically funny and entertaining we can inspire not just the honorees, but, the “Giant” guest as well.  

What can my honoree expect?

Remember the famous song written by Gary Portnoy and Judy Hart Angelo from the 80’s sitcom, “Cheers”?  “Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.”  The Giant Event takes that song literally.  We have designed an evening where many people can and will recognize your Giant for the reasons that you are displaying appreciation and gratitude towards, as well as any additional accomplishments that you want publicly known about your Giant.  There will be many staff members as well as attendees present to pay tribute and salute “Your Giant” , to applaud them for all that they do.   

 What does an honoree receive?

Each honoree will receive a red carpet reception, photo, award and program recognition, including their name on “The Giant Wall of Fame” for the calendar year in which they are honored.  However, the memory of having an evening in their honor and a salute from you for having been a Giant they know and recognize will far outshine them all.  

What should an attendee expect?

We aim to provide each audience member with an inspiring way to show gratitude, and we provide a “Thank You”, that can be seen.  It is the mission of The Giant Event to ensure that every attendee feels like the Giant that they are, and enjoy an inspiring and entertaining evening.  The Giant Event aims to inspire the giant in each individual, while shining a light on the evenings honoree’s. Our goal is to create the best possible memories and provide each attendee with the best possible feeling of being surrounded by Giants and encompassing that same Giant spirit within.
