Not Saturday Night, but Alaine Bollinger and Wendy’s Bloggers are LIVE at the New York Fancy Food Show – there in force to support McCann’s Irish Oatmeal®. Special “guests” will be McCann’s newly introduced gluten-free oats and-on-the-go microwavable cups. Learn more about McCann’s at www.mccanns.irish – gluten free, non-GMO, on-the-go cups, and more. And enjoy it for your next breakfast – or any time of day!
Once again we’re delighted and proud to have been part of another successful Heart Ball for the American Heart Association. This year’s ball helped the AHA raise more than one million dollars in one single night – all of which is earmarked for the prevention of, and education about, heart disease and stroke. Throughout the past year, the team at BD&H supplied the guidance, expertise, design work and communication tools that all contributed toward making this year’s Carnival theme a terrific evening for all – and especially for all of us or our family members who are facing or may face the specter of heart disease or stroke. It’s a disease that touches us all in some way and we’re glad to be part of the battle against it.
“Serve the server” is a tried and true organizational maxim and we’re proud to be in that chain of command, serving those who serve us a good night’s sleep. We take our pro bono activities for the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation very seriously. The daily sacrifices made by SEAL-NSW families are inconceivable to most of us. And many of them make the ultimate sacrifice, which is a debt that simply can’t be repaid, although we still have to try. We’ve recently finished the 2015 Annual Summary, which showcases the work done by the Foundation as a result of the generous contributions throughout the year.
BD&H Marketing is thrilled to be working shoulder-to-shoulder with our client Lucky Country Licorice, not only helping them re-introduce their Aussie Style licorice to the US market (try it – it’s great!), but helping them drive award-winning innovation in the soft licorice and candy category overall. We’ve been assisting them with new product rollouts, packaging design, trade show preparation and more. We’ve launched a youth-targeted soft licorice twist, a sweet-and-spicy candy chew with international flare, high-end batch made organics, and many private label specialties!
All the best to our tasty client Naturally Fresh® Dressings on their milestone 50th anniversary of making delicious, home style dressings and dips. We’re proud to have shared in their success for the past few years with branding, research, package and website design, app development, social/digital/influencer strategy and management, trade shows and advertising. In short – we’ve been busy. But not too busy to stop and say Happy Anniversary Naturally Fresh – and many, many more!
Darrell Lea (Lucky Country’s global parent down in Australia) got us involved in package design for the launch of a brand new product format in the USA – STIX – unbelievably chewy soft licorice flavors with solid, gourmet chocolate in the center. The flavor/format has been loved by Aussies as one of Darrell Lea’s top products, in the US market there was a bit of work ahead of us! We hope you’ll be Lucky enough to sample STIX soon!
Authenticity! There are “oats.” Then there are McCann’s Irish Oats®. If you love oats, you should be crazy about McCann’s®. If you’re already crazy about McCann’s, we understand. A genuine favorite oatmeal for years at the breakfast tables of each and every BD&H-er! We’re engaged with McCann’s beyond the kitchen – developing the marketing strategy, website, social media, digital, media and social influencer campaigns, and much more! Non-GMO, Gluten-free, and on-the-go options. Check out some of the great recipes using McCann’s Irish Oats on Facebook.
Last year, we were proud to have assisted with the inaugural SEAL-NSW Family Foundation Gala and have one of our partners here at BD&H serve as the Chair of the event.
PNC Bank has stepped up for the second year in the role of Admiral of the Fleet – the title sponsor. We are proud to have Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA and NSA, serving as our keynote speaker for the evening. In addition to a live demonstration, the event will feature a silent and live auction and entertainment from recording artists Josh Kelley, Javier Colon, and Steve Azar and band!
It’s not too late to be a part of this very special evening and show your support for our silent warriors and their families. Sponsorship, Tickets & General Information: call 619-344-0344 x706 or emailLhallett@tcgevents.com

100% of the evening’s proceeds goes to the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation.

Not only are we gratified in that we’re doing our best to help prevent heart disease and related diseases, we’re very proud that we’ve helped in a demonstrably tangible way. This year’s (2014) Greater Charlotte Heart Ball topped the $1,000,000 mark for the second year in a row!
