Get the media to sit up and take notice of your major project.
Hellman can help you plan a cohesive and exciting event the press won’t want to miss.
Hellman worked with Build Our Ballpark, a nonprofit group based in Waterloo, Iowa, and Waterloo Leisure Services to put on a truly grand opening for the local Riverfront Sports Park’s eight fields, new walking/biking trails, playground, and shelters.
Our behind-the-scenes work included creating custom signage and commemorative plaques, providing ballpark-appropriate refreshments and giveaways, and lining up live music from a local marching band. Promotion included media relations, print and Web ads, emails, a brochure, VIP invitations, and social media.
Hellman executed both a VIP ceremony for donors and a public event that included speeches from dignitaries, a ribbon-cutting, and ceremonial first pitches. The local TV news broadcasted live from the event, and reporters from several other media outlets attended, along with several hundred ballplayers, parents, and community members.
If you’ve got a big event to plan, why not hand it over to Hellman? We’re great at handling public relations—no matter what the scale. Give us a call and see what we can do.
