Qorvis to Raise Awareness of Fight For Children and Fight Night

WASHINGTON, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Qorvis Communications, one of the fastest-growing integrated communications firms in the U.S., announces they have been hired by Fight For Children, the D.C.-based philanthropy founded by the late Joseph E. Robert, Jr., that works to ensure low-income children receive a great education and stay healthy so they can learn. Qorvis will work with Fight For Children throughout 2013 and will build momentum for the cause in anticipation of the annual Fight Night gala next fall.

"Fight For Children brings a tremendous amount of resources to the local community and we are honored to be working with them," Qorvis Managing Partner and CEO Michael Petruzzello said.

Qorvis will work with Fight For Children on all elements including traditional media relations, social media strategy and sponsorship activations, as well as providing strategic guidance, leading up to and following Fight Night.

This year's Fight Night, held on Thurs., Nov. 14, 2013, will benefit Fight For Children and other high-impact, not-for-profit organizations providing education and healthcare services.

"We are pleased to work with Qorvis Communications to ensure that Fight Night and Fight For Children continue to evolve and strengthen our impact," said Michela English, President and CEO of Fight For Children.
