Sapsis Rigging recently provided rigging services for two special events in New York City.
For the launch of the new Target Model-Less Fashion Show, Sapsis Rigging provided an eight-legged, self-climbing ground support system in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station. The rig was 40 feet by 80 feet and was used to support lighting, audio, and Barco projectors.
At the same time, Sapsis Rigging provided the rigging for the latest 7th on Sale AIDS Benefit held at the 26th Street Armory in New York City. Sapsis Rigging has provided the rigging for every 7th on Sale event since the first one in 1990. The rig for this year's production included over 75 hoists and approximately 3,000 feet of truss.
The semi-annual affair features fashion designer clothing and samples on sale via an eBay auction and at the Lexington Avenue and 26th Street Armory. All of the money raised goes to services and housing for those living with HIV and AIDS.
