Team Building Holiday Party

Main Stream Events and PR Firm coordinated a fabulous team building event with the help of Hampton Roads DJ at Grand Affairs, Virginia Beach, VA.

Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative tasks. It is distinct from team training, which is designed to improve the efficiency, rather than interpersonal relations.

Let us help you with creating a team building activity for your company.  Call us today!

Progressive Dinner

What is a progressive dinner?  It's simple - a social occasion at which the different courses of a meal are eaten at different people's houses.

We planned an impromptu dinner and it was very easy to pull together a few desserts for some friends.   This is just another idea for small dinner parties that you can plan or let us plan it (or the items and decor).  Main Stream Events and PR loves helping people with their event planning needs.

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.
