Meet the Annapolis-Area Press:
April 10, 2017

“Meet the Annapolis-Area Press” at the 2017 P.R. Bazaar - Save the date for April 3 and 10 2017

It’s impossible to pitch a good story to the media today! True? Or, is that an alternative fact? What’s the best way to contact a reporter? What kinds of story ideas interest the media?

To find out, register now for a unique, Annapolis-area version of Meet the Press.

The 2017 edition of P.R. Bazaar will be held the evening of Monday, April 10. The doors open at 6:15 p.m. for registration and networking. The panel discussion begins at 7 p.m.

There are many excellent print, online and broadcast media in this area. To enable their representatives to participate, the event takes place over two evenings. Attendees can chose to go to the first, the second or both. Each evening is a different mix of panelists.

Unless there’s a major breaking story, more than 20 local seasoned editors, reporters or producers and several terrific P.R. experts have volunteered their time to serve as panelists at the 2017 P.R. Bazaar, held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, 333 Dubois Road, in Annapolis, Maryland, 21401.

P.R. Bazaar is open to the public. All are welcome to attend.

These evenings will provide a very basic introduction to local, local, local media. Instead of a panel responding to questions from the audience, after the panelists introduce themselves, they will go into the audience for “Rotating Round Table” discussions with groups of audience members. Everyone gets to interact in a small group setting with all the media representatives. It’s a form of “speed networking!”

The goal of the two evenings is to help you make connections with people who are in the business of “getting the news out.” Find out what they want – or don’t want. Learn the best way to contact them – and make a lasting connection – directly from them.

You will also learn how seasoned PR Pros work with the media. Panelists include representatives from Image Power and L'attiude 38.

So far, these media have agreed to participate on the PR Bazaar panels:
On April 10:
AA First Alert, Arundel News Network , Annapolis Home, Capital Gazette, Eye On Annapolis, Looking Good, Pasadena Voice, Severna Park Voice, UpSt.Art Annapolis, and What’s Up Annapolis.

Past attendees have commented the two evenings provide a unique opportunity to meet various members of the media in a relaxed atmosphere. “It’s helpful to learn preferences and other details from various media representatives all at one sitting,” said one. This is also an opportunity to network with other members of the audience.

Admission is an $18 donation per person for one evening, $30.00 per person to attend both events. Payment can be made by credit card online or at the time of registration. Checks may be made out to “UUCA” and presented at the door, or mailed by March 27 to PR Bazaar, c/o UUCA, 333 DuBois Road, Annapolis MD 21401. Or, you can pay at the door.

Seating is limited. RSVP early to ensure a seat and enough take-away materials for everyone. Register online at: or by calling 410-562-4189. Please specify whether you are attending April 3, April 10 or both evenings.

Light refreshments will be served.

Annapolis Fun Run

Annapolis / KI 5K / 10K:
April 23, 2017

The Annapolis/Kent Island run helps fund training and placement of highly trained service dogs to wounded veterans and first responders:

Meet Charlie, the TODAY “Puppy with a Purpose”

America’s VetDogs® (, a New York–based non-profit that provides specially trained guide and service dogs free of charge to disabled veterans and first responders, is excited to host its Seventh Annual Annapolis/Kent Island Run & Dog Walk ( The event will take place at Kent Island High School in Stevensville, Maryland, on Sunday, April 23, 2017, with on-site event registration opening at 7:30 a.m. Proceeds will benefit the VetDogs service dog programs.

Event guests of honor include Army Command Sergeant Major Gretchen Evans, who received a hearing dog from the VetDogs program, and Charlie—NBC’s TODAY “Puppy with a Purpose.” Evans, a lifelong runner, will speak about the life-changing difference her service dog has made, and Charlie will be available for photo opportunities and will demonstrate various service dog skills for those in attendance.

Evans was injured in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom while her base was taking mortar fire. A blast that occurred near her left her with traumatic brain injuries and damaged eardrums, resulting in extensive hearing loss. In 2015, she was teamed with a black Labrador Retriever named Aura, a hearing dog from VetDogs who was specially trained to respond to sounds by determining their location and alerting Evans. The dog will then take her to the source of the sound. “I don’t even know if I can articulate what a difference she has made in my life,” Gretchen declares.

Event Details:

Held just across the Bay Bridge at Kent Island High School, the race will journey through the beautiful Cross Island Trail. Participants can take part in a timed 10K or 5K race, a leisurely 2-mile family-friendly walk with or without a pup, or a 1-mile fun run. The 5K/10K is a USATF officially measured course. The opening program begins at 8:30 a.m. and timed races start at 8:45 a.m. The dog walk will follow at 9:05 a.m. and the fun run shortly thereafter. The closing awards ceremony will take place at approximately 10:30 a.m.

Virtual Participation is encouraged. By virtually participating, supporters from all over can fundraise and take on a 5K/10K, dog walk, or fun run in their hometown. The Virtual Participation option is available within the registration area of the link below.
