Society Campaign Showcases Fashionable Guests at "Race to Make a Difference"

Hundreds of fashionable guests sip mint juleps and wager bets on Kentucky Derby horses to support the People’s Emergency Center’s (PEC) work with homeless women and children. Simon PR was engaged to conduct a media relations campaign that would showcase board members and raise awareness of the nonprofit’s mission around this fundraiser which is called “Race to Make a Difference.”

Simon PR secured a photo gallery on The Main Line Times’ website, which receives between 250,000 and 300,000 page views each month. Additional media coverage included a KYW AM Newsradio interview with the nonprofit’s Emerging Leaders co-chair and a photo and news release placement in The City Suburban News. A letter to the editor also positioned PEC and its board members as leaders in helping to equip families in need with the services and knowledge necessary for success. Read more.

Flush with Success, City Turns Sewage into Usable Products

Located on Penrose Ferry Road, the Philadelphia Water Department’s Renewable Bio-Fuels Facility is transforming the City’s biosolids into valuable pellets for sale as organic fertilizer and renewable fuel. To help raise awareness of this state-of-the-art facility, Simon PR generated media coverage of its grand opening and site tour with Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter.

 Simon PR secured a front-page feature story in the Southwest Globe Times that highlighted how the Philadelphia Water Department partnered with Synagro Technologies to eliminate offsite odors, minimize noise and traffic, reduce greenhouse emissions, and save a projected $200 million over the next 20 years. Additional placements included advance coverage on NBC-10 and coverage of the tour on 6-ABC. Read more.

Interesting Factoids

Website traffic and engagement are the metrics most frequently used by public relations professionals to demonstrate the value of social media activities, according to a recent survey by PR News and Cision. While Facebook and Twitter are the most widely-used social media platforms, brands are also starting to use newer channels such as Vine, Reddit, and Snapchat.

We hired Simon PR to position us as a transformational leader in Philadelphia’s nonprofit sector.  They help us better communicate not just what we do, but why it’s important.  We’ve enjoyed a considerable increase in our media coverage and with that, have come increases in charitable and foundation gifts. I appreciate their strategic planning, responsiveness, creativity and determination. Best of all, they’re humble.  That makes me feel confident that for them, the client is central.
