RE: OT - Press release experience?

Donna, since this is our first year, I don't have any pictures yet.  I only
have Santa and Mrs. Claus photos.  The costumes are different for a 5th
century bishop and the jolly elf from the North Pole.  (I'm still sewing the
Bishop's garb, but have beautiful Black and red Celtic Cross material for
it.  Because of the expense of the fabric, I've already done a trial to get
the proportions right.  I'm still looking for an alb pattern that will work,
but have some beautiful lace for the insets when I find a pattern, so we may
have to use one of pastor's albs this year.  And there is no pattern
available for the Bishop's Mitre.  I'll be making a proto type soon.)   

It will be a very busy December with our regular charitable Santa Visits
(already 12 bookings) the St. Nicholas event and the Christmas Wrap Events
at church.  DH and I will need to rest up in January!!!  LOL!

where are you trying to get this listed at? If it is a calendar of events,
just give them the facts- if you are looking for 'free space' in their
newspaper you have to peak their interest and do most of the work so they
can just hand it over to the copy folks. I haven't done this stuff in a few
years, but used to have contact folks at all the major places I wanted free
advertising. I would create the ad and send additional pictures as
attachments and give them the basic info in the email. When is this event?
Magazines need the info at least three months in advance, newspapers 3-6
weeks. Of course, they sometimes have extra space even at the last minute.
John used to get a kick out of them calling to see if I had some fill item
they could use LOL!

Does anyone have any experience with community event press releases?  I'm
getting ready to "alert the media" to a St. Nicholas Event open to the
Dayton area and I want to make it as professional as possible.
