Day 105: Serious Par-Tay People!

Allied Party Rentals

A few years ago I agreed to host a fund-raiser at my home.  It was a “progressive dinner” concept.  The idea was to have three families host drinks, dinner and dessert and raise money for the renovation of Glen Mar Park.  The response was overwhelming and next thing I knew I was responsible to host over 50 couples at my house for dinner!  I needed some party equipment and I turned to a local company that has been helping area businesses, charities, schools, PTAs, even the federal government, throw parties for the past 50 years –Allied Party Rentals. 

Sample Table

Need a large tent?  How about from 10′ to over 70′.  Want it heated?  Air-conditioning?  No problem.  Worried about a power outage -how about a generator?  Allied Rentals has got it covered but there’s more.  You can rent table linens (50 colors to choose from), round tables, banquet tables, chairs, China, flatware, glassware, chafing dishes, bowls, fountains, stages, dance floors, lecterns, and more!  Need a popcorn machine?  How about snow cones?  How about a moon bounce? Coffee service?  No problem here.

Moon bounce!

Allied Party Rentals is located at 4907 Rugby Avenue and this is the place to go if you are going to throw a party.  If you have to throw an event this Spring stop in and see Philip Kirlew.  He will hook you up with everything you need.  He told me on a recent visit that the Spring is one of their busiest seasons and that festivals make up a large portion of their business.

We ended up raising over $3,000 for the park renovation that evening and it was a great way for the neighborhood to get to know each other.  If you are tasked with a fund-raiser this year or have a wedding or other event in your future consider getting a helping hand from Allied Rentals.  I’ll see you under the “big-top” as they say in the circus. ~Brian
