2023 R.E.D. Gala



Patty Elliot immigrated from Ghana, West Africa to the United States at the age of 18. At the time, her father had joined Ghana’s Mission to the United Nations as a diplomat. Patty eventually worked for Wyeth Pharmaceutical for 15 years. At the age of 35, she was diagnosed with a debilitating illness that forced her to resign from the company and focus on her long-term treatment and recovery. With the possibility of not returning to a corporate career, Patty immersed herself in volunteer activities at her kids’ school and co-chaired fundraising events with other parents. She developed excellent event planning skills which she leveraged broadly into her community.

With these roles, Patty found a life-long passion! She developed a sharp acumen for event planning and an acute sense of detail that is truly reflected in the work she undertakes. She also developed great partnerships with caterers, entertainers, jewelers, fashion designers, restaurant owners and many other fabulous vendors in the event execution business. As a result, her clients get the best and most cost-effective pricing for their events. Patty’s events are professionally-produced, directed and executed with her true signature style of cool, classic, traditional, and definitely fun!
