Big Wigs Put the Fun into Fundraising


Here at inferno, we love an opportunity to let our hair down and party for a good cause. Every year, Big Wig Ball mixes fun and philanthropy during a night of food, music, and libations — with proceeds benefitting Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

On June 17th, infernites Liza Routh and Tarryn Sanchez headed over to Annesdale Mansion for a night of fun and entertainment. Wigs of every color, size, and decade adorned each guest, as they enjoyed delicious food from CFY Catering and great entertainment by Jerred Price, Charvey Mac, and DJ Justin Jaggers.

Other entertainment included the Amurica photo booth, a caricature artist, and a wig contest — where the guest with the best wig took home tickets to see the Grizzlies play.

With 200+ guests in attendance, Big Wig Ball raised over $50,000 for Le Bonheur this year.

Liza Routh, account manager, currently serves on the Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital Associate Board and has been heavily involved with Big Wig Ball for the past four years. Linda Corti, associate creative director, provided creative for the event including the logo, posters, ads, and email. Additionally, inferno drafted a press release to promote the ball.
