Shorecrest Preparatory School Gift Drive for Guardian ad Litem

teddy_news
The Shorecrest gym was filled with toys, games, clothes, bicycles and much more on Friday – all part of a gift drive for children supported by the Guardian ad Litem Foundation. The organization raises funds and resources for local foster children. Christmas should be a special time for every child and the students and families of Shorecrest made sure local families have a reason to celebrate.

Bay New 9’s Ashley Jeffery and Tampa Bay Times reporter, John Pendygraft, visited the school to talk with the students about the gift drive.

“Your mom and dad gift you stuff, so when you give it feels like you are the person who is being kind and giving. I think it feels really good,” said second grader, Kristen Williams.”

Shorecrest Preparatory School Participates in Hour of Code

code-news

We were pleased to welcome Bay News 9’s Ashley Jeffery at Shorecrest Preparatory School as students participated in the Hour of Code – a global initiative to expand participation in computer science and technology. In celebration of Computer Science Education Week, Hour of Code is organized by Code.org and features tutorials to teach programming, including Code with Anna and Elsa from Frozen and Write Your First Computer Program with video lectures from Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies. President Obama also learned to write code with students.

Ashley met kindergarteners learning how to program a robot, 3rd graders building their own apps and games, and seniors learning more advanced coding in preparation for biotech classes in college and plans to make more advanced prosthetics.

Finding great sources for stories keeps journalists happy

newspaper_newsThe Pinstripe PR team works diligently to keep our clients in the news. We are pitching stories to the media – major legal cases, significant real estate transactions, executive profiles, and more. We are offering clients as experts for stories about trends, legislation, or localizing a national story. We are ghost-writing op-ed pieces and guest columns.

One of the benefits of building great relationships with the media is they regularly contact us when they need a source for a story.

Of course, clients are always “on the list” to get these opportunities first, but if isn’t a fit or they aren’t available, we go through our contacts, friends (and friends of friends!) to find someone qualified to talk to the journalist. By positioning our team as a reliable go-to  firm for sources, the media continues to depend on us.

Last month, New York Times writer Amy Zipkin was working on a story about the latest trend of hotels allowing guests to leave or borrow items. She needed to talk with people who have taken advantage of these services and came to us. When none of our clients had used them, I recalled a friend – a former road warrior – who told stories of her superb hotel customer service experiences. We set up the interview and Amy had her first source.

Amy’s story appeared in today’s New York Times and Alison’s comments made the lede.

dgfirm_newsThe Pinstripe public relations team connected de la Parte & Gilbert lawyer, Kristin Melton with Associated Press reporter Kareem Copeland to write his story about Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston’s student code of conduct hearing that began on December 2, 2014. Copeland’s article outlines the key details of the hearing including the parties involved, possible sanctions, when a ruling is expected, the appellate process and some history.

Kristin, who has experience in administrative law and representing clients involved with NCAA compliance cases, explained the difference between the code of conduct hearing and a criminal procedure.

With the worldwide reach of the AP, Kristin’s commentary was featured on nearly every television and radio news site, online publication, and daily newspaper including USA Today, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and ESPN.

Pharmacists to the rescue! Pinstripe video team creates movie trailer

Tampa Bay video production

MTS, an Omnicell Company, creates machinery and packaging designed to improve medication management. We all know someone who takes a variety of medications several times a day and the challenges they face to stay compliant. Instead of manually dispensing pills into a plastic case, the MTS blister packs are pre-filled at the pharmacy, helping patients and caregivers with accuracy and adherence.

The Pinstripe video production team helped bring the client’s brief to life with a “Michael Bay without the explosions” movie trailer to promote new equipment that was to premier at an upcoming industry trade show. To keep the budget in line, the video was created with client-provided clips, stock footage and music edited with custom animation.

MTS distributed the video to current and potential clients to encourage them to visit their booth at the show where it was played on a loop along with an educational video also produced by Pinstripe.

The best part? Another happy client.

“Every once in a while a project comes along that comes out so well, you cannot contain your pride. This is one. Thank you so much Ginger and your talented team at Pinstripe Marketing. You understood my vision and hit it out of the park!”
