Next Friday, Oct. 27, marks the third annual Great MN Media Get-Together – a fundraiser celebration highlighting the accomplishments of ThreeSixty Journalism students and alumni. ThreeSixty Journalism uses the principles of strong writing and reporting to help diverse Minnesota youth tell the stories of their communities, helping them feel more connected to their communities and become more driven, knowledgeable, confident, tenacious, brave, enthusiastic and passionate in life. Values we can all agree apply to any profession, journalism or otherwise.
This year’s celebration will be emceed by WCCO’s Reg Chapman, and includes a relaxed cocktails-and-appetizer environment with beer, wine and apps included with your ticket purchase. The evening continues with a sit-down dessert, brief program and live auction. The event presents a great opportunity to mingle and network with Minnesota media personalities, ThreeSixty staff and supporters, and of course, the next generation of journalists.
Bellmont Partners has been a long-time supporter of ThreeSixty Journalism, and president Brian Bellmont is on the board of advisors for the organization, which is housed at the University of St. Thomas. Most of us at Bellmont Partners have volunteered with ThreeSixty Journalism in one way or another, including at digital workshops where students learn how to tell stories of brands or organizations using digital platforms, summer college essay writing boot camps, and presentations to students about our careers and the world of public relations.
We’re thrilled and honored to continuously support ThreeSixty Journalism and its efforts to cultivate the next generation of storytellers, and we would love to see you at the Great MN Media Get-Together! For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit http://threesixtyjournalism.org/fundraiser.
