The Pop-Up Party

The first-ever Pop-Up Party resides in the memories of almost 300 guests, and the surprise event location stunned sponsors and ticket holders with it’s rooftop elegance and fantastic music, light, and sound.

Thanks to the generosity of our SpotLight Sponsor, VeraBank, the Pop-Up Party event team temporarily converted the fourth floor of the VeraBank private parking garage into a rooftop dining and dancing venue. Marqueal Jordan and The Players flew in from Chicago, Illinois to provide the jazz and dance tunes, and Tommy Ochoa’s StageWorks created out-of-this-world sound mixing and lighting effects. With the natural beauty of an East Texas sunset, guests dined on food elegantly crafted and served by Perfect Catering. Beverages were provided by R and K Distribution, The Made-Rite Company, and Harley’s. The modern table and club aesthetic was provided by Tyler Tents and Events. The amazing centerpieces came courtesy of Timber Bloom Design and Laurel&Finch. The luxury relief station was provided by Fabulous Flush. And to the delight of many, the rooftop cigar bar was outfitted by The Smoking Aces.

This event would never have occurred without the generosity of sponsors who believed in the vision of the Longview Arboretum. We’re humbled by their support for this first community fundraiser. Eighteen Longview Arboretum Volunteer Guild members and 8 Board of Directors invested countless hours to present a flawless surprise to those who took a leap of faith of sponsoring this event or buying tickets to The Pop-Up Party. We’re grateful for that trust, and hope the delight of a party popping up in an unlikely location was worth the price of admission.

Proceeds from the Pop-Up Party will be funneled into Phase 1 of the Longview Arboretum’s master plan.
