Supporting Communities We Serve: Event Lighting for BumbleBee Foundation.

by Mobile Illumination


This past month, Mobile Illumination was honored to have donated event lighting services to a fundraising event hosted by the BumbleBee Foundation of Southern California. The BumbleBee Foundation’s mission is to inspire hope and faith by providing support to the overall well being of pediatric cancer families.

BumbleBee Foundation

The costs and emotional stress for families of pediatric cancer patients can be overwhelming, according to the Foundation. It is BumbleBee’s goal to assist families with not only financial support for things like unpaid medical bills, time off from work and related expenses, but also to support basic needs like meals, transportation and other services. Additionally, the Foundation helps families by sharing hope and providing comfort via spiritual needs and counseling.

FUNdraising Event

The BumbleBee Foundation’s annual FUNdraiser was themed as a Wild West Casino night and featured food, music, raffles, casino games and down home fun for the whole family. The event was held on July 9th at Strathearn Historical Park in Simi Valley, an open-air park maintained as a historic museum with period furniture and household displays.

Various historic buildings and structures have been moved from their original site to the park, including the 1924 Montgomery children’s playhouse, the 1902 St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, the original Simi Valley Library, a Colony House built in 1888, The Banaga Barber Shop, and two barns with farm tools and equipment.

Lighting and Décor at the Event

Mobile Illumination used color changing LED lights to up-light the park’s surrounding trees in vibrant green, red, blue, and purple lights. We also strung overhead Tivoli lighting between structures in the outdoor courtyard. Our team even designed and installed festive event lighting in one of the barns, where casino tables were set up for guests’ entertainment.

A great time was had by all in the casino, at dinner, and while strolling around the beautifully lit grounds. And by evening’s end, a lot of valuable funding was raised for a very worthy cause.

Mobile Illumination was proud to partner with the BumbleBee Foundation in staging this event. We very much enjoy working to support the communities we serve.
