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.

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.

Picnics Are Special

Have you ever grabbed a picnic basket and your friend or significant other?  Picnics can be fun and it gets you out of the house and on an adventure.   We all need to take time to smell the flowers, or in this case, have a picnic and eat some cookies and lemonade. We even coordinated a family reunion with the picnic theme.

Another outing is to grab some wine and cheese and just make your table a bit of whimsey.  If you are going to a festival, wear some hats that will make the crowd turn their heads.

Just be creative and if you need help with ideas, Main Stream Events and PR Firm can help.  We love private and corporate parties and we can do all the work.  We can even surprise you and your someone special with all the details and keep it a secret to all and then you just show up where we have the perfect private getaway. Perfect for an anniversary with your someone special.  (Just thinking about this gives me the goosies as I am a hopeless romantic)

Oranges as Your Focus

Why is it that people love oranges? Just look at these. Oranges are natural and beautiful when displayed and they taste great as a garnish, by itself or to cook with.  Why not decorate your table with homegrown California Oranges.
