Drake Cooper in Boise has an opening for a “Media Buyer/Planner Extraordinaire.” The ideal candidate will “…love all things Media, from negotiating rates to reconciling discrepancies, from research to analysis, from GRPs to CPPs to HUT/PUT/PUR.“
The clothing drive promotion runs from September 22nd – September 24th, from 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM each day. Those who wish to donate “gently used” clothing during this time may do so at any Dutch Bros location, and in exchange will receive a coupon for $1.00 off any prepared drink.
And yes, while this appears to be an effort to drive traffic and drum up a little business for the local Dutch Bros. locations, I’ll give the folks at DNA some credit for trying to help out a local charity at the same time.
Dream Big is a program put together by Drake Cooper as a way to give back to the community, and more specifically to non-profit organizations that are in need of a little extra help. From the Dream Big section of their website: Through this annual program, we will work with one selected organization to help develop a unique in-kind branding and cause marketing campaign. We hope that our joint work with the charitable organization increases community awareness, understanding and inspires action around an important cause.
This program is similar to others, such as Oliver Russell’s O-pen Purse program, which offers donations or in-kind assistance to deserving non-profit organizations. From Oliver Russell’s O-Pen Purse application: Each year Oliver Russell partners with a select number of nonprofit groups to help them meet their organizational goals. We provide grants in the form of advertising, design and interactive services, marketing consulting, and, occasionally, monetary contributions.
Drake Cooper is currently accepting nominations for this year’s Dream Big program, and will be through October 31st. More information is available from a release on Drake Cooper’s website, or on the Dream Big page itself.
Oliver Russell is also accepting applications for next year’s O-Pen Purse program through November 1st. More information about his program is available on their website.
To both agencies, and everyone else who makes an effort to give back to their community: Well Done.
A quick Coffee Morning reminder:
The next Coffee Morning will be this Friday, September 19th, from 7:30ish (AM) – 9:30ish.
I look forward to seeing everyone Friday morning. Any questions – feel free to send an email.
Now that summer has passed (oh how it hurts to admit that…) The Boise Advertising Federation is once again gearing up for their regular schedule of events and activities. Case in point:
Three Ounces + Ice is a social event / cocktail party from the BAF. In addition to the usual mingling and libations, the BAF will be presenting details about the upcoming golf tournament, as well as this fall’s luncheon speaker series.
The event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 24th at Beside Bardenay from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.
More details here:
The Idaho Press Club will be presenting a discussion forum featuring firsthand accounts from journalists who covered the Joseph Duncan trial. You’ll be able to hear “what it was like to report on one of the most horrific crimes in Idaho’s history– the legal challenges and media access issues, the ethical choices of balancing the truth with potential harm and the challenge of balancing personal trauma with professional responsibilities.“
Todd Dvorak of the Associated Press will moderate.
Time, date and all of those other pesky details:
