My connection to Aidan Henry and Brink Events flows from the creative charitable side of his services as an event planner. I have worked with Aidan and Brink Events on four fundraising events on behalf of the Victoria Cool Aid Society. Each event has become, from an experiential design perspective, progressively more magical. And through that magic of truly unique events, we've been able to raise an annually increasing amount of funds for the Victoria Cool Aid Society that allows them to provide health, housing, work supports, and a wide variety of other programs that assist many in our community whose quality of life would be diminished without Cool Aid programming - programming which flourishes in part because of the generous creativity of Aidan Henry and Brink Events. I know this to be true because I am not only a financial supporter in partnership with Aidan, but am also a client of the Cool Aid clinic where I receive first class medical care.
"The City of Langford wanted a unique way to launch our new projects to 200 VIP guests and Brink Events delivered flawlessly! From tenting to decor to floral, everything was elegantly designed and executed."
"The logistics of bringing together a Corporate 50th Celebration for a hundred guest to mark an important milestone achieved by our Saanich Forestry Centre was a big enough task without the added complication of organizing the event from 300 kms away. Aidan Henry and his team from Brink Events provided professional and personable assistance, diminishing any concerns right from our very first call. Aidan looked after all our rental details including the setup and take down; he liaised with a Catering company that provided excellent food and service; he provided suggestions that ensured the smooth flow of the agenda planned for the event; and he provided personal support the day of the event. I would highly recommend Brink Events to anyone planning a Corporate Event."
"I would sincerely like to thank you so much for the effort that you and Ryan put into making our event memorable and a success. I can't adequately describe how many of our guests were raving about the two signature drinks, but more the JT Tonic drink. People were all saying they drank more than their normal amount just because the JT Tonic was so smooth and so enjoyable in taste. Jesse (the groom) loved how the drink looked like his favourite drink, the dry gin martini. He was also saying how fresh and smooth tasting it was. People kept telling us that they just couldn't stop drinking the signature drinks. And I was amazed at how all the elder men were not even interested in switching over to what they normally drink - mainly whiskey with ice and water! You both worked very hard that night and I so appreciate how special you made our event. People thought it was so cool that there was a proper bar set up, with a very knowledgeable bartender." You made this whole thing so easy for us with your prompt communication. And you understood exactly what we were looking for in the signature drinks. I keep telling people how much care and attention you gave our small little house party, even though you normally are involved in much much larger events. You are so personable and your enthusiasm for what you do is so apparent! It was so great to work with you and I can't thank you enough for everything! Hopefully we will be in touch again some time in the near future for another event!"
"When Our Place wanted to launch a signature fundraising event to raise awareness of all that we do for the most vulnerable citizens of Greater Victoria, and generate much-needed donations, we naturally turned to Aidan Henry and Brink Events. Aidan has been a huge supporter of Our Place over the years, and he worked diligently with our small staff to produce a world-class event that ended up raising $80,000 to feed the homeless."
"Working with Aidan & Brink Events for our annual staff party not only ensured the success of the event but made my job as organizer painless. He brought creative ideas to the table that incorporated our vision and the features that mattered to our team beautifully. He was available anytime I had questions or concerns, and his staff were professional and friendly."
"It was truly a pleasure to work with Brink Events at the DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, Canada opening in Victoria! Your connections with Victoria’s top influencers, tastemakers and media were extremely beneficial and enhanced the event guest list perfectly. What a wonderful job you did selecting the caterer, the photographer, the florist and more. You possess such wonderful organizational skills when managing invitations, guest lists and the special event team. I look forward to working with you in the future."
"You and your team helped turn our annual Father’s Day event into THE event to be at on Father’s Day. Our success was due to your creativity, hard work and your enthusiasm for perfection. For all of that, I send my thanks."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Aidan and Brink Events on several events over the past few years, including our very successful Sponsor Night Appreciation Event ( attendance 350). Aidan and his team are not only incredibly well organized and detailed planners, they are also extremely creative and always deliver a fantastic event, on budget and with very low stress on my end! They are professional and courteous and willing to go the extra mile to satisfy their client. It always feels like they are on the same team with us which makes for an easy and enjoyable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Brink Events for any of your event needs."
"Aidan Henry and Brink Events are a fabulous partner, helping Victoria Cool Aid Society host memorable and profitable events. Aidan’s concepts are first rate and his execution is flawless. We look forward to more Brink Events as we work together to end homelessness."
