Real life PR?

I am so excited to be a part of the Easter Seals Conn Smythe Sports Celebrities Dinner & Auction this Wednesday evening. As a part of our program at Centennial we are required to do free PR work, and I am fortunate to work with the Easter Seals. I have been involved with events at school such as Talk is Cheap, but nothing as major as something like this. I will be working with the communications team signing in media, which I think is totally exciting. In class we did a mock news conference where we had fake media sign-in sheets, but this is something else.

The event (in its 57th year) is Canada’s longest running sports celebrities’ dinner. More then 1000 will attend in support of Ontario’s kids with physical disabilities.

I am slightly intimidated by the whole process to be quite honest. Not just participating in the event, but doing real PR work. Its one thing to hand in a news release to an instructor, but I would be writing pieces that could potentially turn up in the news!

So I hope that over the next few months I will be able to share my experiences with you and that you will do the same.

Internships are also fast approaching…anyone else incredibly nervous about interviews???
