The cost for lunch is $15 for members and $20 for guests.

“Lunch meetings of the Gold Coast PR Council give our members a chance to meet and network with media decision-makers. With the growing influence of Hispanic media in South Florida, this will be a valuable opportunity to find out important information, such as deadlines and the way in which the editors like to receive pitches (by phone or email), even something as important as to whether or not they accept press releases written in English or should we have them translated into Spanish first,” said Gary Schweikhart, co-founder and president of the Gold Coast PR Council. “This is really a great opportunity to get one-on-one with some key editors, so the next time one of our PR professionals call the editor of these Hispanic publications, they can say, ‘Hey, remember me? I met you at the Gold Coast PR Council lunch, and do I have a great story for you…”

“How to Reach and Pitch Hispanic Media” will be divided into three segments. From 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. attendees will have an opportunity to network; from 12 to 12:15 p.m., there will be lunch and organizational announcements; and from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., there will be a presentation followed by a question and answer session.

The Gold Coast PR Council is an independent group of public relations, marketing and communications professionals from Palm Beach and Broward counties. The Gold Coast PR council holds networking and educational lunch meetings, such as this one, on the third Tuesday of every month. More information is available online at — Sergio Carmona
