This Thanksgiving, WGPR had the honor of being the chosen PR firm of the 2011 Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony! Although this wasn’t our first rodeo, we took great pleasure in working on this event with Mayor Sly James and his staff.
We invited American R&B/soul musician, Janelle Monáe (of Kansas City), to be the celebrity guest “light flipper” and had the best time before and after the ceremony chatting with her. This girl’s style is just as amazing as her voice and performance skills!
The Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund would like to thank Ameristar Casino, Brady Enterprises, Burns and McDonnell, Cosentinos, Isle of Capri Casino, JE Dunn, Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Spinkler Fitter Local Union 314 for their contributions!
