Jax Professionals Enjoy Paw Partner Lunch & Learn

On Thursday, February 28, we held our first of two Paw Partner Lunch and Learn events planned for 2020. This free event included lunch and networking opportunities for business professionals interested in learning more about partnership opportunities with the Jacksonville Humane Society and the importance of corporate responsibility.

Paw Partners is an opportunity for businesses to receive year-round recognition and help raise awareness about programs and services offered at JHS. It is an annual sponsorship (calendar year) that can be customized to fit each business’s unique marketing needs.

A Paw Partnership with the Jacksonville Humane Society includes multiple opportunities for exposure and gives brands and teams chances to participate in events, volunteer, and network throughout the year. Branding with JHS allows companies to benefit from the vast appeal of companion animals. While partnering with us to help raise awareness for our programs, your company can touch the minds and hearts of consumers in a way that drives sales and endears them to your brand. This allows you to give back to the community you are in all while building your brand!

JHS does not receive any state or federal funding. It is only through the generosity of businesses like yours that JHS, a 501(c)(3) organization, is able to provide for the animals in our care since 1885.

Our Paw Partner Lunch and Learn was sponsored by Gemstone Media, full service broadcast and video professionals. Gemstone Media services include long and short form television production, remote and/or studio shooting, green screen, digital content for websites and social media, post production editing, graphic creation, live sports and entertainment television, commercial and industrial production, training and sales videos, live event productions, internal and external marketing, and more.

During the event, we heard from Gemstone Media President Philip Green about the power of video. Philip also emphasized client relations, meeting deadlines, and staying on budget as main features that set Gemstone apart from other production houses.
