When it came time to start planning for Arielle Dukofsky’s Bat Mitzvah, she had built-in experts!
Her parents are Patti and Gregg Dukofsky, who are the owners of Interactive Entertainment Concepts, a full service event production company.
They celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on October 23, 2010, at Cold Spring Country Club in Cold Spring Harbor, New York.
Arielle had an “A-List” Hollywood theme complete with a sponsored step-n-repeat, “live” simulcast arrival and interactive VIP area.
All party photography was done by Interactive Entertainment Concepts and the rest of the vendor information is at the bottom of this spotlight.

Although Mom Patti plans Bar/Bat Mitzvahs as her career, it’s different when the celebration is for your own child. She has this advice.
“Make sure you are organized and think ‘out of the box.’ Also try not to sweat the small stuff!”
