Barrister Tenant Featured on Hit Reality TV Show

On Sunday, April 10th,  tune into ABC at 8 PM to watch Secret Millionaire for a very special story about current Barrister Executive Suites, Inc. tenant, Beauty Bus Foundation.

Secret Millionaire features some of America’s most successful self-made millionaires.  They will spend a week in the America’s poorest areas and ultimately reward some unsung community heroes with hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own money.  Residing in local housing on welfare-level wages, these “secret millionaires” will try to find the most deserving people within the community.

The April 10th show will feature Beauty Bus Foundation as they worked with a volunteer.  The episode will show the volunteer working with Beauty Bus Foundation for one week, only to reveal that she is really a millionaire that would like to donate to Beauty Bus Foundation.  It is a truly moving and uplifting show.

Beauty Bus Foundation has been with Barrister Executive Suites, Inc. since February 2010.  “They inspire us on a daily basis when we see the work they do in the community,” says West Los Angeles Suite Manager Dawn Armstrong.  “They started at Barrister’s West Los Angeles location with two offices, and have now grown to four.  I am so happy to see that they are getting the support that they need to continue helping their terminally ill clients and their caregivers.”  Barrister’s Suite Manager, Dawn Armstrong, knows firsthand.  Her husband was recently diagnosed with cancer.  When Beauty Bus Foundation heard, they extended their services to both Dawn and her husband.

Beauty Bus Foundation serves chronically ill or terminally ill clients and their caregivers with in-home beauty services including hair, makeup, manicures and pedicures.  “Our goal is to offer reprieve and a few moments of pampering to these remarkable individuals,” as stated on their website.

Barrister’s Davidson Races to Benefit Her San Diego Community

Barrister Sales Manager Deborah Davidson and partner Kathyrn Widdoss compete in The Amazing Race to Serve.

Barrister’s Leasing Manager Deborah Davidson has an amazing experience to share around the water cooler with tenants and colleagues.

Davidson recently participated in “The Amazing Race to Serve” on January 29th. The day-long event is organized by San Diego’s North Coast Church, and is based on the popular television show, “The Amazing Race.”

Described by organizers as a fun and interactive scavenger hunt on steroids, 240 two-person teams raced a 10-mile scavenger hunt from the Oceanside Pier to the North Coast Church Vista Campus. 

The event generated over $28,000 in support of the church’s upcoming “Weekend of Service” in May, a project to help North County residents.

“It was a great way to feel more involved in the San Diego community and to help raise funds for a great cause,” says Davidson. 

Davidson and her partner completed the race and answered all clues in an impressive time of 4.5 hours. 

Barrister Executive Suites, Inc. has three locations in the San Diego area: Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, and Del Mar.

The Mad Hatter wasn’t present for the recent tea party held at our Century City location, but the laughter and good times flowed just the same.

Barrister tenants and staff gathered for an End of Summer Afternoon Tea networking event. While tea was served and finger sandwiches were passed, tenants mingled and utilized the opportunity to exchange business cards.

The afternoon was also a great opportunity to welcome new tenants and learn about one another’s business or practice.

Barrister Assistant Vice President Jacqui White drew from her British background for the idea of tea in the afternoon. 

“We had a tremendous turnout,” White said.  “Numerous tenants have expressed how much they enjoyed the opportunity to mingle and relax.”
