Magical Days at Burrage Mansion

Magical Days are special events held at the Burrage Mansion several times throughout the year. These enchanting galas are designed to bring love, hope, excitement and joy back into the lives of children who are experiencing crisis. These are kids who are facing a serious illness or who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling—all heart breaking stories. While we can’t erase the pain or suffering that has impacted their lives, we can offer these special children and their families a day full of joy and magic and happiness.  Families are nominated from within the community who have social, economic or health related crisis.

Karen Clements of Main Stream Events and PR Firm volunteered her time to be a part of this magical day.  Main Stream Events and PR Firm believes in giving back to their community and Mansion Memories is one of the organizations that they volunteer several times a year for.

More about Mansion Memories:

How Do We Select Our Families? Families are nominated from within the community who have social, economic or health related crisis. Please note: Due to limited space and our goal to serve as many families in crisis as possible, we cannot accommodate grandparents, aunt, uncles, cousins or friends at the Magical Day. Only Nominees selected to participate and their immediate family members may attend the Magical Day event.

How To Get Involved? We typically have over 150 volunteers to make these events a reality. From decorating to food preparation to the final clean up, our amazing volunteer workers are a crucial component to our success. Volunteer opportunities will be announced as needed for each event.

Redlands Conservancy

Main Stream Events and PR Firm had the privilege to volunteer at a fabulous dinner to benefit Redlands Conservancy. Combine a tour of an elegant historic home with a delicious dinner and an exciting Silent Auction, all on a late summer evening, and the scene was set for Redlands Conservancy’s 2016 Annual Social. That’s been the formula for 23 years, and it has brought together the Conservancy’s mission of preserving historic buildings with a passion for having fun.

Since the Bottenberg house was built in 1900 for Mrs. Helen Bates by Davis Donald, the Victorian house has had only five owners including Peter and Michele Bottenberg who took over from the fourth owners, Bill and Mary Bottenberg. With six bedrooms and five baths, and a servant’s quarters, the house has a massive presence at the corner of South Center Street and Clifton Avenue. According to the Bottenbergs, it has never had significant remodeling and retains the original woodwork and most of the original lighting.

Chef Malissa Grinnals of Dining In-Style Personal Chef Service provided the fully catered dinner for the third year in a row, following rave reviews from guests. The main dish choices were tri-tip and vegetable stack and I must say, everything was amazing.

Company Picnic at Hunt Club Farm

As summer comes to an end, Main Stream Events and PR Firm coordinates a company picnic at Hunt Club Farm in Virginia Beach, VA. We specialize in corporate events and would love to help you plan your corporate event.

The Pavilion Tent tucked in the back of the farm was the perfect location for a quiet company picnic.   We set up a picnic buffet, fried twinkies/oreo's/ice cream, and cold beverages for all ages.  Something different at the farm was a Chicken Roundup and Lead Line Challenge with a pony and llama and that kept it lively and a Scavenger Hunt looking for clues around the farm to include paddle boats. Oh, a baby goat was born that day and we got to see it 1 minute old.

Krendl from Magical Solutions, Inc. was the DJ and he kept them playing games, trivia, and just relaxing to the music after a long summer.

Catering was done by the Mobile Pig Nic and it was great as always.

Kelly Hall  was my great assistant for the day.

4th of July Celebrations

Everyone loves the 4th of July especially, Karen of Main Stream Events and PR Firm.  Karen grew up with her dad's birthday on that day and she still finds the fireworks every year.   As an adult, we love to celebrate with parties and picnics and find a way to see the fireworks. Grabbing a picnic basket is always a fun way to celebrate and this was an inspired photo shoot where we have planned many picnics for special couples.  Another option is cheese, fruit, crackers and of course your favorite beverage.

Main Stream Events and PR Firm has more great ideas for small parties all the way up to large corporate picnics.

If you ever have the chance to go to Nashville, TN, they offer the best fireworks we have ever seen.   An amazing showcase.
