Red Carpet Photo Booth Buffalo NY

To Booth or Not to Booth?

From the moment your guests enter the room treat them to the Red Carpet Treatment. Uptown is proud to present the best of both worlds with Red Carpet Photo's. Our professional and courteous Photography staff will ensure that your guests maximize the Red Carpet Photo experience.
So...what is Red Carpet Photo's?
Uptown took the popular Photo Booth concept and added a touch of Class for your wedding, sweet sixteen, bar/bat mitzvah, marketing event, fund raisers, proms, college theme nights or any occasion. Just like being at the Grammy's or the Oscars we bring the Red Carpet experience to your party.

So how does it work?

Unlike most photo booths that allow two, three or possibly four people into the booth, Red Carpet Photos allows singles, couples or group photos. Professional backdrops and lighting create the canvas for your unique photo experience. Available upon request is our prop package that includes wigs, boas, glasses or themed accessories.
When do we get our pictures?

Guests receive their 4" x 6" photos presented in a classy folder/frame with your optional personal message or event date. Great idea for party favors or just to remember your special day or event. Our professional printers deliver the digital prints on professional printer paper in only a few seconds.

Every wedding package includes a memory book for the Bride/Groom with copies of every photo with a special message from your guests.

Uptown also provides a digital copy of every photo taken at the event on dvd or flash drive for your personal use.

How many photos are taken during the event?

Only one answer...UNLIMITED! (during the hours of the package reserved)

Red Carpet Photo's requires a minimum of 8' x 10' of space and access to one standard power outlet.

So here's the question....

What are you waiting for?

Call the Funline today at 888-220-0077 and we will be happy to answer any questions. Please visit us on the web http://www.funline.com/ and fill out our online quote request form to check availability.

Making Fund Raising FUN

Putting the FUN in fundraising is important to have a successful event.

Uptown has been a leader in the entertainment business for almost three decades. During that time we have helped many community groups in the North East with our many entertainment ideas and themes.

Fantasy Casino Parties, Texas Hold Em Tournaments, Red Carpet Photo's or a Game Show Night. Game show nights can include our most popular stage show Price It Right, The Feud or our newest addition Gone In 60 Seconds a spinoff of the popular Minute To Win It.

Uptown is also proud to offer award winning Disc Jockey Entertainers, Professional Master of Ceremonies or musical entertainment.

If your event is in the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse areas of New York please call the Funline 888-220-0077 for additional information on how Uptown can bring the FUN to your fundraiser.

Or Visit us on the web http://www.funline.com/

In an effort to assist our Uptown family of clients, we will continue to offer ideas to assist with planning successful events.

With that in mind...Uptown presents...

Seven Steps to a Successful Fundraising Event

1. What is your Purpose:

Before doing anything else, you must decide what the purpose of your event is. Many charitable events have more than one goal...figuring out the details of your event will depend on what goals your group or organization is trying to achieve.

2. The Fundraising Goal:

Your organization staff, the event host committee and key fundraisers must decide what amount of money you want to raise at the event. If it is a true fundraising event, then everything in your plan should be gearded to raising that specific amount of money. It is important to remember, the amount you choose should be the amount you want to net, after expenses are deducted.

3. Your Event Budget:

Every fundraising event should include a complete budget listing of all expenses required to hold the event. The Budget should include staff, invitations, advertising, space rental, catering, entertainment, transportation, security, utilities or anything else to make your event a Success!

4. Committee and Leaders:

To ensure a successful event, a committee and committee chairperson should take command of the event. They are responsible for encouraging others to assist and getting local business leaders, local celebrities and helping to bring sponsors and donors to the event.

5. Who will you Target?
Decide who will be your attendees...open to everyone, local business people, parents...once you decide...go to step six!

6. Marketing and Sales:

How will you get the word out that you are having a fundraiser? Here are a few suggestions: direct mail invitations, email blasts, word of mouth, press releases, posters or phone banks to name a few. In order to have a successful event you have to get the word out!

Once you have the word out...you must have a procedure in place to make the ticket sales. Who will sell the tickets, how will they be delivered and who will be responsible to record incoming funds. Also very important to spell out exactly what the ticket to the event includes.


It is very important that once you hold your fundraising event to remember to say Thank you! Include in your thank you's the volunteers, contributors, vendors, staff and a big thank you to the attendees. A little sugar goes a long way.
