UPDATES: DOUG ELDRIDGE
TOTAL P.R. POWER...
All year we've been in PR overdrive and that's never been more evident than in the month of July.
We've placed clients on the primetime PBS July 4th special, booked in-studios with FOX, NBC, and CBS, and completed client photo shoots for W Magazine (above), the Wall Street Journal, and Allure Magazine, among others.
As we close in on Rio 2016--now just a few weeks away--we've got even more national level media placements up our sleeve! Hard work pays. // DE
Once again, we had Olympic clients front and center for the PBS Capital Fourth primetime special. With 200,000 people lining the South Lawn of the Capitol and another 15 million watching at home, it was a big event for Dagmara Wozniak (fencing) and Casey Eichfeld (slalom canoe).
They mingled with congressmen, musicians (like Gavin DeGraw, above), and on-air personalities, like host Tom Bergeron. The following morning, we booked them in-studio with FOX and EWTN, as July 5th marked one month until the Opening Ceremonies for Rio 2016! // DE
WE CRUSHED AD47...
On June 10-11th, we were down in Laurel, MS to manage the 2nd Annual AD47 Football Leadership Academy for NFL client Akeem Davis.
In its second year, this free, one-day football leadership program (in partnership with the NFL Foundation and USA Football) expanded from 53 to 100 kids, ages 8-12.
As an agency, we booked all media (TV, radio, print, and digital), secured sponsorships, hosted a launch reception, and ran the camp itself. Seeing the smiles and excitement on the kids faces was both professionally gratifying and personally rewarding. Here's to year three! // DE
WE GOT MARRIED...
On May 7th, I married my best friend. Hilary and I dated for six years, were engaged for six months, and stood in front of God, our family and friends to commit our lives to one another. In a month where it rained 25 days in DC, we enjoyed sunshine and fellowship on what I can only describe as a truly amazing day.
Hilary has always been beautiful, but on May 7th, she was absoluely gorgeous--both inside and out. This was without question, the best day of my life. God is good. // DE
