"Media Mingle: Meet Philadelphia Journalists at Happy Hour"

  • Wednesday, September 12, 2018
  • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Tradesman's, 1322 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19107


What is the often-overlooked secret to practicing media relations? Focusing on the relationship part of the equation. Understanding a reporter’s needs can help you mold a story to meet their goals. And sometimes, it is just good to put a face with the name.

PPRA has assembled a cross-section of Philadelphia’s best journalists for this mix-and-mingle event. Our friendly admission price includes the opportunity to mingle with some of Philadelphia top journalists, light hors d'oeuvres and two tickets for adult beverages.

Currently committed to appear: 

  • Bethany Ao, The Philadelphia Inquirer
  • Samantha Bambino, Newspaper Media Group
  • Vince DeFruscio, CBS3
  • Stephania Jimenez, NBC10
  • Annette John-Hall, WHYY
  • Emily Neil, Al Dia
  • Ernest Owens, Philadelphia Magazine
  • Ronnie Polaneczky, Daily News
  • Bruce Ryan, NBC10/Telemundo 62
  • Rahel Solomon, CBS3
  • Debra Wallace, Philadelphia Life Magazine
  • More to come!
In addition to meeting top journalists, we will be introducing this year's PRoactive partner, ArtWell. ArtWell was founded in 2000 to respond to the chronic community violence in Philadelphia by introducing a preventive, educational, arts-oriented approach to reach underserved communities and youth facing discrimination, poverty, violence, and the everyday challenges of growing up. Throughout the program year, we will be collecting items to create "ArtWell at Home" kits so students can continue to show their creativity outside of the class room. Necessary items include: unlined notebooks/ sketchbooks, colored pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue sticks, watercolor sets and brushes, and construction paper. Take advantage of back to school sales and start our year of giving back strong in September!
