Volunteer at Burrage Mansion

Why does Karen of Main Stream Events and PR Firm volunteer her time with organizations like Mansion Memories? She believes in giving back to the community that she lives and works in. She donates her time because she believes in helping others. She has been volunteering for Mansion Memories for a short time, but she feels like home when it comes to these events.

December 10 was a Toy Story Magical Day where we had characters visit from the Toy Story movie, children played interactive games, had a face paint station, photo opportunities, a letter to Santa station, a nice meal, and the fellowship of being at a mansion with other children. These children were nominated to come to the mansion and their eyes just lit up from the time they arrived until they departed and even older teenagers that were a bit macho in the beginning were taking photos with the characters and writing letters to Santa. Every child deserves to be a child and even the adults (like me) deserve to have some magic.

These are just a few of the pictures that were done for the setup and I snagged a few of Karen and her mom volunteering along with the other volunteers.   Mansion Memories could not put on these events without the assistance of sponsors and volunteers.

What is a magical day?

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.

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.
