Media-Relations Management

Biondolillo has dramatically raised the bar of media relations in the world of special-event fundraising.

We call our approach “Campaign-style Public Relations,” through which we aim to support local, individual special-event fundraisers with several hundred print placements and robust television and radio sponsorship, all on an “earned media” versus “paid-for” basis. Notably, we have brokered the nation’s first million-dollar media sponsorships to support special-event fundraisers, as well as generated up to 700 print hits on behalf of local, individual events!
