Picture of James Fox Receiving New Condominuim Donated by Dan Creighton and Priority Marketing Donated Event Management and Public Relations to Help Dan Promote His Charity CampaignEach month, we spotlight some of the outstanding media coverage of our clients’ news and events. You’ll see them featured frequently in newspapers and magazines, on television and radio, and on blogs and social media.

In January, Priority Marketing was honored to donate event management and public relations services to help Dan Creighton, CEO of Creighton Construction & Development, present James Fox with his own condominium while encouraging the community to help make James’ house a home through GoFundMe donations and Amazon Wish List contributions. Dan spotted James, who was born no arms or legs and was homeless at the time, traveling down Pine Island Road on his skateboard and wanted to help. It’s generous acts of kindness like this that make Southwest Florida a better place for all!

The News-Press provided full coverage of the grand reveal as James saw his new home for the first time:
