About Denise Shane-Cheaney

Hello, I’m Denise Shane-Cheaney. I’m a single mother of three amazing adult children and have one beautiful grandson. I attended Central High School, and graduated from the University of Evansville. I’m known both personally and professionally for being a whirlwind of energy. In 1996 I started working at Casino Aztar here in Evansville. When I say that the casino changed my life, it’s true. Although I was already a proven, qualified manager when I started there, it was not until the casino that I met my True Love: Event planning! I spent over ten years at the casino until I resigned my position as the Director of Casino Programs and Events in 2007 to start Shane-Cheaney Consulting, an event planning/marketing consultation company. I’ve planned, helped plan, and successfully run hundreds of events, from small parties to $250,000 galas. I pride myself on being able to mingle well with a diverse collection of clients. I’m well known for my job knowledge, creativity, true and honest work ethic, and top-notch organizational skills.

I bring to Pink Elephant Celebrations my vast knowledge of events, but the celebration is ultimately yours. My goal will always be to take what you envision in your event and bring it to life in the most polished, professional, and stress-free way possible.
