PR Newswire: news distribution, targeting and monitoring
Feb 7 2013

NAPLES, Fla., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- One of the country's leading speaker series is making a major commitment in the fight against hunger.  Naples Town Hall, which will feature Tim Tebow at their signature event at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, FL on Saturday March 9, 2013, today announced that they will be supplying 100,000 meals for the hungry in support of the good work of the Taste of the NFL and the Kick Hunger Challenge. Town Hall president, Rick Borman cited their common goal of eradicating hunger in our lifetime and engendering public generosity through their access to world-renowned celebrities, and celebrity chefs.


"Who could say no?", explained Mr. Borman, the producer of Naples Town Hall and the weekly host of "The Rick Borman Show" which airs on 92.5 Fox News in Ft. Myers, FL.  "The NFL connection enlightened me to the Taste of the NFL and there are so many synergies.  It's not just the meals; I want to share the awareness.  Technology is an enabler to help us scale and do things we couldn't do, even a year ago."

The Taste of the NFL has selected Uptown Network as their exclusive interactive media partner to develop their mobile iPad App that is available for free on Apple's iTunes App Store.  Each free download of the App provides one free meal to help kick hunger. Just as hunger is a 24x7x365 issue, the App will keep the world engaged and also provide great backstage access to high profile events and celebrities united in this common goal.

Rick, who recently assisted Glenn Beck with his Mercury One Restoring Love events attended by nearly 100,000 people, is donating his time to go to New Orleans.  He will be the Reporter-at-Large for Uptown Network broadcasting live video and performing interviews of celebrity chefs and NFL players for Uptown's exciting iPad App that will act as your complete guide to Taste of the NFL. All of the videos, chef and player pairings, and a complete guide to the entire weekend can be viewed through the Uptown Network App.

Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
