PRO EM Party & Event Rentals has recently acquired University Resource Supply, LLC and SoCal Tents & Events. This is the second acquisition in 45 days, having acquired Partytime-HDO Productions in May. These acquisitions follow PRO EM's recapitalization by Dos Rios Partners in October 2016. After the recapitalization, PRO EM decided it wanted to acquire entities from other markets like URS and Partytime-HDO Productions, in order to expand its menu of services, product inventory and to offsest seasonality.
American Cancer Society
Cowboys aren't known for sitting around, and the American Cancer Society’s annual Cattle Baron’s Ball aims to keep its attendees on its feet.
The ball, held Sept. 24 at Cobo Center, drew 700 attendees and raised $1 million to support the society’s mission. It featured a strolling supper with local celebrity chefs making their signature item; a live auction; and entertainment. The event, though open to the public, is primarily a corporate fundraiser that draws its support from sponsorships.
