Getting the Word Out
Media alerts work well for events that are virtually self-explanatory and offer good visuals that will appeal to photographers and TV camera crews.

Don’t forget to include a contact number, including a “day-of” event number, such as a cell phone. Send the alert a day or two before the event to get short-lead media (TV, wire services and daily newspapers) to put it on their assignment schedule.
