The Downtown Des Moines Kiwanis Foundation is looking for a public relations partner for their 65th Annual Kiwanis Basketball Jamboree on Saturday, November 17, 2012. If you are a public relations professional looking for a service project for the year, this charitable event could fill the bill! The Foundation would like to take the event to the next level with TV and radio spots that would make it attractive to corporate sponsors, but they do not have the resources to do so.
This one-day event held the Saturday before Thanksgiving showcases boys and girls high school basketball teams from the Central Iowa Metro League (CIML). Proceeds go toward the Downtown Des Moines Kiwanis Foundation’s projects that help area children. Past projects include building a family room for Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital, providing seed money for the Kiwanis Miracle League at Principal Park, and purchase of a pediatric sedation unit for Blank Children’s Hospital.
