10/8 DRAGONFLY DASH OF 333 FEET ENCOURAGES “PARTICIPANTS TO ENJOY THE MOMENT”

 

Day-long Liberty Center Fundraiser with Dash Benefits The Dragonfly Foundation

 

July 20, 2016, Cincinnati, OH, The Dragonfly Foundation and Liberty Center will host a “Dragonfly Dash” event on October 8, 2016. The main feature of the event is the “Dash” where participants will walk, skip, roll, hop one half-block (333 feet) around the Liberty Center’s green-space adjacent to the Foundry building. The event will take place on October 8, 2016 from 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM at Liberty Center Shopping Center, with the Dash running in 10-minute groups starting at 10:30 AM. The event will include entertainment provided by Cincinnati Circus on the lawn of Liberty Center, music, snacks and drinks, an auction/raffle, an after party, and awards ceremony on the rooftop deck. Jennifer Fritsch from Q102 will be the event emcee!

 

Admission to the event is $10 per adult, $5 per child (4-18), and free for anyone under the age of 3. A $5 Military Discount will be available to those with a current military ID. Further registration information can be accessed at Dragonfly.org/Dash. Online registration ends September 8th. All proceeds will help Dragonfly meet the needs of young cancer patients and their families.

 

The Dragonfly Foundation believes that the Dash is not about how long the run is, or about what you do while you are doing it, it’s about how much you enJOY the moment. The Dash, like life, is short.

 

The length of the dash is 333 feet. The repetition of the the number three signifies “mind, body, and spirit,” and to be mindful of new opportunities that cross one’s path. As a foundation, Dragonfly’s goal is to provide emotional support for young cancer and bone marrow transplant patients and their families – which is what the choice to hold a 333 ft. long “dash” signifies. Prizes will NOT be awarded for the fastest or slowest, instead, prizes will be awarded (in both child and adult categories) for enthusiasm, participation, and JOY. A raffle prize will also be awarded among those who visit at least half of the participating Liberty Center stores/restaurants and get their “passports” (which will be provided) signed.

 

Liberty Shopping Center is located at 7100 Foundry Row Liberty Township, Ohio 45069. More information and tickets are available at Dragonfly.org. Sponsors include: Liberty Center Foundation, Cincinnati Circus, Hubbard Interactive, Platinum Marketing Group, and others. To become a sponsor or to donate a prize or raffle basket, please email Dash@Dragonfly.org.

 

The Dragonfly Foundation, which will be celebrating its 6th anniversary, has been recognized for helping to change the paradigm of patient care at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute, and has also grown to serve Dayton Children’s Hospital and two hospitals in Chicago, IL.. We have built a community of support around our Dragonflies that gives them hope and minimizes their sense of isolation and despair.

Wilmington Savings Bank Now Offers FHA and VA Loans

Community Bank Adds Alternative Mortgages to Loan Offerings

 

Wilmington, OH – July 26, 2016 – In addition to more traditional home loans, hometown community bank Wilmington Savings Bank is also now offering FHA and VA loans. Bank president Tom Burns explained that the bank continues to find solutions that help hard working members of the community obtain home ownership.

 

“Owning a home is still the American dream,” Burns explained. “And it’s the cornerstone of a thriving community, so the ability to create more opportunities and provide options to more residents is not only good for our bank, it’s good for our community.”

 

An FHA home loan is a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It is an alternative to a conventional mortgage, and are generally intended to help people with limited down payment funds or modest credit history.

 

A major difference between an FHA loan and a conventional mortgage is that FHA borrowers only have to put down 3.5 percent on the purchase. Closing costs may also be lower on FHA mortgages.

 

A Veterans Affair, or VA, loan entitlement is a basic entitlement of $36,000 that is available to eligible veterans seeking a VA home loan. Most lenders will loan up to four times the veteran’s entitlement on a home without requiring the veteran to make a down payment. VA loans are subject to credit and income qualifications and the property being purchased must appraise for the price being asked for it.

 

The VA does not set a limit on how much a qualifying veteran can borrow when looking to finance a home, and most VA homes are purchased with no money down.

 

Burns says that anyone interested in learning more about the FHA/VA loan options offered by Wilmington Savings Bank may stop in the local office and discuss with a loan officer.

Heimlich Heroes™ hits 500 life-saving trainings

Cincinnati, OH-July 12, 2016- Heimlich Heroes™, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit, teaches young people how to recognize, respond to, and prevent a choking emergency. Since the organizations start in 2013, they have held 500 Heimlich Maneuver® training events.

“This is a wonderful accomplishment for our program,” said program manager Terri Huntington. “With each training event more kids are learning how to save a life, and now we look forward to the next 500 training events!”

The program was created to adapt to different environments. Schools, clubs, groups or any youth organization can use the training. The organization has had adult special needs programs, and community outreach events utilize their curriculum.

“Although our program is designed for ages 7-14, anyone can use it to learn the Heimlich Maneuver,” said Huntington. “We don’t want to turn anyone away from learning this life-saving skill so we work hard to make accommodations.”

Heimlich Heroes has trained more than 34,500 kids in 45 states and one international training over the past three years. The program has little to no cost and is accessible to anyone in the world through the training-in-a-box.

“The main reason we designed a boxed training is to reach as many young people as we possibly could,” said Huntington. “It’s rewarding for our organization to know our mission is being fulfilled and lives are being saved.”

For Small Non-Profit, Agency Partner Helps Cast a Wider Net

 

An Eisen Case StudyHeimlich Heroes 072

Many small non-profits lack the internal resources needed to accomplish all of the organization’s PR and marketing goals. That was the case for Heimlich Heroes,™ an interactive, educational program, designed for kids ages seven and older. The program teaches students the signs of choking, ways to prevent or minimize the risk of choking, and how and when to respond with the Heimlich Maneuver.

“As a young, small non-profit, we did not have the internal resources needed to put out press releases or pitch articles and media interviews to our markets across the country,” said Terri Huntington, Heimlich Heroes Program Manager. “We were doing some initiatives locally, but needed help reaching the broader audience.”

Heimlich Heroes, a Deaconess initiative, partnered with The Eisen Agency to assist with strategic planning, national public relations efforts, proactive media outreach and content development.

As Heimlich Heroes experienced, one of the many benefits of partnering with an agency is that agencies generally have the tools, experience, expertise and people to meet the variety of needs presented by the client. This can be especially true of a non-profit organization that may not have the necessary internal staff or funds.

“Eisen’s expertise and resources focus on public relations, a very specialized marketing niche,” said Huntington. “With an agency on board, we get a broader creative perspective, and they think outside of our boxes. A team that communicates and works well together is always stronger than the individual.”

Heimlich Heroes has been working with The Eisen Agency for more than two years. With collaborative efforts, the expanded visibility has increased the demand for this unique training program by more than 2,000% in that time.

In addition, overall visibility for Heimlich Heroes has increased from two to 47 states.
