Nathan loves sushi - That’s not to be confused with crack inside the roe. It really is that good.

Shawn loves Humor with Dead Flies – Yes, this is a strange one, but how could I be expected to not click on a link with that name. And I’m glad I did. Further proof that creativity has no bounds. I would love to meet the person responsible for these little comics on Humor With Dead Flies. Although, I may not want to shake their hand. “Moth”er & child is priceless.

Susan loves Vitamin Water’s Flavor Creator - My favorite daily drink has launched a Facebook campaign to have fans write and design a label and name the newest flavor of Vitamin Water, black cherry and lime. Whether you are an experienced designer or just a drink junkie like me, they make it easy to submit your ideas and offer a Mad-Lib style copy wizard. In addition to seeing the winning design on the shelves, the winner will receive a cool five grand. You better hurry, the contest ends on Tuesday, October 20th. Go vote for my entry, Verve!


Think Pink…for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Friday, October 9th, 2009


The beginning of the week started off with a rainy Monday but quickly turned into an exciting week filled with Pink Chicks and press conferences. On Monday, I was given the run-down on an upcoming project that benefits the Pink Ribbon Project. The Pink Chick Parade will allow supporters to purchase 5′ tall pink chick cutouts that will be displayed along Military Cutoff in front of the forum. The Pink Chick Parade will raise Breast Cancer Awareness as well as draw attention to The Forum!

In order to inform the stores and their customers about the upcoming event I distributed flyers and brochures to the retail shops and restaurants in The Forum. The stores were also given a fact sheet so they could answer any questions their customers may have regarding the Pink Chick Parade. The next day, follow-up calls were made to various media outlets who received a media alert the previous week, informing them about the press conference to be held later that day.

My job during the event was to watch and learn. Since it was my first press conference I was eager to see how one works. Before the press conference started, the podium, equipped with a microphone, was set-up surrounded by Pink Chicks. After checking to make sure the microphone was working properly, we ran through the speaking agenda one last time before it started. David Swain began with remarks followed by the mayor, and Frances Weller just to name a few! Even though dark storm clouds lingered the entire time the rain held off for us and the press conference went off without a hitch!

That night on WECT’s 5:00, 5:30 and 6:00 newscasts, Frances Weller did live interviews and segments at The Forum Shops to showcase the Pink Chicks! A special thanks to: Frances Weller and WECT, Mayor Saffo, David Swain and all of the lovely ladies from the Pink Chick Parade.


Pink Chicks on Parade at The Forum Shops!

Monday, October 5th, 2009

pinkribbonA host of 5’ tall Pink Chicks and a number of local celebrities, including Mayor Bill Saffo and WECT-TV Anchor Frances Weller, will strut their stuff in front of The Forum Shops on Tuesday, October 6 to kick off the first annual Pink Chick Parade to raise funds and awareness for the Pink Ribbon Project. The Pink Chicks are 5’ tall pink cutouts that will parade in front of The Forum Shops in Military Cutoff Road throughout October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pink Chicks can be purchased at any of The Forum Shops for $125 each — the cost of a mammogram administered by Pink Ribbon Project Pokies. Participants are encouraged to “Buy a Chick, Save a Life” to help Pink Ribbon administer more mammograms to uninsured women. The chicks can also be signed and customized in honor of or as a memorial to a loved one.

In addition to launching the Pink Chick Parade, David Swain and The Forum Shops are donating $10,000 to the Pink Ribbon Project. Since its inception in 1998, the Pink Ribbon Project, an initiative of the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation, has raised more than $1 million to provide “Comfort Bags” to area women undergoing treatment and to administer mammograms to uninsured women through New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Coastal Care Van.
