CenterStage Gala at the MFA

The 2023 CenterStage gala took place at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston. The event was produced and designed by Rafanelli Events with illumination by Port and audiovisual technology and media content provided by AVFX.

To create an immersive, engaging experience, AVFX used vertical projection, turning projectors on their sides in order to fill the walls. Custom content was created for this event by studioAVFX.

The CenterStage gala at the MFA raised funds for research at the Mass General Cancer Center, a global leader in innovative cancer research. Funds raised at the CenterStage gala at the MFA celebrate the progress that has been made in the fight against cancer and honors the amazing people who help make it possible, while raising funds for the work that remains.

It was an evening of celebration to honor progress in the fight against cancer and to share the stories of the most promising advances in cancer research and the most poignant moments in patient care at the Mass General Cancer Center.


“I cannot thank you enough for creating amazing motion graphics for last night’s event. The room looked stunning, and your graphics pulled it all together. It was a pleasure working with you and looking forward to the next one”.

Thank you,
Marne Rubinstein Mahoney, Event Director, Rafanelli Events
