In 2013, the firm won an unprecedented seventh Silver JASPER Award in the “Television and Video – Video News Release” category, for two video news reports it prepared on behalf of PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. One video news report featured a formal prom event held at the hospital for patients of all ages, including several teens who were missing their own high school prom because of treatment at the hospital.
The other report featured the hospital’s window washing company, whose workers volunteered to dress as Spiderman and Batman while rappelling down the side of the hospital, providing young patients with a surprise diversion from physical therapy and other treatments. The two superheroes also toured the hospital and posed for photos with the children and their families.
