It was a day of glitter, glamour, and good friends as veteran event planner Valerie Percival celebrated her 80th birthday in style. Valerie is the founder of Valerie Percival ViP Event Management, and she has been the special events manager for IBM Australia for 38 years. She is also the founding Vice President of ISES Australia and does voluntary work for Rotary and several other organizations. The celebration, themed “Diamonds and Pearls,” was spectacular, with white florals and sparkling crystal décor transforming the event space. Originally planned for July 2021, COVID caused a few delays, but this past March 2022, the celebration finally came into sparkling fruition. Here are the photos from the stunning event.
