This was a Black Tie Event for The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command.  Main Stream Events and PR Firm designed and coordinated their Hope Gala 2016.  This is there 3rd annual and we are honored to have coordinated all three of them.  We had 375 feet of Red Carpet and beautiful pedestals filled with pictures of Salvation Army services that the guests walked through as they arrived.  We transformed he gymnasium into a beautiful dinner atmosphere.  The legendary Coach Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech Football was our Key Note Speaker.

It was a team effort with amazing vendors and wonderful Salvation Army staff and volunteers.

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)
