Jared Richardson – The CEAVCO Chef

Jared Richardson is the warehouse manager at CEAVCO Audio Visual. It’s his job to oversee all outgoing and incoming gear and the team who take care of that gear every day.

Jared and his team take great pride in making sure that CEAVCO’s clients get exactly what they need so each show runs like clockwork. The way he puts it, he’s like a chef. He makes the meal exactly the way the client likes. Extra onions, no asparagus? Coming right up.

Every day, Jared’s team is the first in the building and the last to leave. They all work hard, but it’s all for a good cause. CEAVCO’s clients want to entertain, engage, or educate their audience, and Jared’s biggest source of satisfaction is knowing that his team has given them the support they need.

For over 10 years, CEAVCO has partnered with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to provide comprehensive audio, video, and lighting for the Cattle Barons Ball, the largest ACS fundraiser in Colorado. The evening event is held inside an enormous tent with fine dining, dancing, live auctions, stage shows, and headline entertainment.

Each year, CEAVCO works closely with stakeholders to transform their vision into a standout design with a distinctive look and feel. For this year’s Ball in September, CEAVCO’s Creative Services department will also create mission-driven video content for the event in order to tell powerful stories that optimize fundraising efforts.

Over the last 23 years, the Cattle Barons Ball has raised $5.705 million, and each event over the past few years has raised nearly $500,000. Each year the ball is held on historic ranches and sites in Weld County, Colorado, and highlights Colorado’s western and agricultural heritage.
