West Los Angeles Welcomes New Tenants with a Party!

Barrister Executive Suite, Inc. in West Los Angeles welcomed new tenants and celebrated long term tenants with a party last week.  Dawn Armstrong, Suite Manager, hosted a packed party to show Barrister’s appreciation and kick off the 4th of July weekend.

Barrister tenants and staff enjoyed delicious food, refreshments, and fun toys that tenants could take back to their office!  The party gave everyone a chance to take a break and talk to fellow tenants in the suite. 

“We have some tenants that have been with Barrister since we first opened this location and we have some tenants that were moving in July 1st,” says Dawn.  “A party was the best way to show the new tenants what kind of fun we have here at Barrister and to show our long term tenants that we still love having them.”

Barrister’s location in West Los Angeles is a great community of business professionals and ideal for people who like to network.  Tenants include CPAs, attorneys, nonprofits, and entertainment to name a few.  But, what they all have in common is they like to have fun!

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.
