Saint Germain Catering Continues to Fight Mammary Cancer in Dogs

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Saint Germain Catering is pleased to promote its Cure With Cupcakes website this holiday season, which has a unique and delicious way to help dogs who are stricken with breast cancer. Just as this disease is very deadly in humans, it is deadly to humans’ canine friends. But with continued research, there is hope for a cure. Saint Germain Catering is proud to contribute to this important cause by supporting the University of Pennsylvania’s Shelter Canine Mammary Tumor Program.

Cure With Cupcakes has had much success in the past when it comes to raising awareness and funds for Penn Vet’s Canine Mammary Tumor Program. During the month of August, Cure With Cupcakes was able to raise $ 3000 from cupcake sales for the program. “We are hoping to exceed our previous successes with fundraising for Penn Vet,” says Saint Germain Catering Vice President Sarah Miller. “We also want to remind everyone that 100% of the proceeds from the Cure With Cupcakes sales go toward the Shelter Canine Mammary Tumor Program.”

The cupcakes are available for sale at $ 36.99 for a dozen. Interested individuals are encouraged to visit the Cure With Cupcakes website at For more information about the programs at Penn Vet, please contact Penn Vet at (215) 898-2029 or visit

Dueling Pianos: The Latest Trend in Wedding and Corporate Event Entertainment

Barrington, IL (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

There’s a new player in the entertainment industry, and they don’t play nice…

They’ve been around for over a hundred years. You can find them in every big city across the US. Yet dueling pianos is just now starting to establish itself in the wedding and corporate event markets.

Event planners have been limited in entertainment options. The ubiquitous DJ has been utilized time and time again for the cost benefit and music flexibility. Meanwhile, the high budget events can opt for a six to twelve piece orchestra in pursuit of the “live” experience. Many events also hire stand-up comedians and magicians to supplement the evening with a 30 minute spot.

Now imagine combining the flexibility of a DJ, the “wow” factor of a live band, and the interaction/comedy of a stand-up comedian. Enter dueling pianos.

The dueling pianos concept is built upon an all request, audience driven show. From Elton John to Miley Cyrus, Frank Sinatra to Sir Mix-a-Lot, performers are trained to handle any request. Combine that with the antics of an improvisational comedy show and now you’re looking at an option that can entertain any group, from a private house party to a 1000+ seat theater.

Relatively new to the dueling pianos tradition is Felix and Fingers, a Chicago-based company who provides entertainment across the country. F&F have managed to redesign the dueling concept (previously relegated to piano bars) and introduce it into the wedding, private, and corporate sectors.

“Finding the right balance of comedy and music was key” said Mike Potts, co-founder and CEO of the company. “People are familiar with the raunchy Vegas acts and bar shows. We wanted to offer a product for the more discerning client who still wants to have a good time”.

Going on their 4th year, Felix and Fingers have received accolades from wedding networks like The Knot and Wedding Wire, along with glowing reviews from Fortune 500 companies such as Aflac and John Deere.

Felix and Fingers is a Chicago/MidWest dueling pianos company servicing weddings, corporate events, fundraisers and Mitzvahs across the country. Founded in 2010, they have their offices in Barrington IL.

Providence, Rhode Island (PRWEB) July 15, 2014

Serving customers with the utmost of quality, affordability and consideration is what PoemsToGo is all about.

They even provide poems and speeches of sympathy, including eulogies that are truly heartfelt and unforgettable.

PoemsToGo also serves a corporate clientele with original roasts, tributes, feature articles and, if desired, marketing communications materials (advertising, brochures, direct mailings and more).

Once they order online, customers receive an exclusive questionnaire that’s quick and easy to complete. PTG writers then use that material to create one-in-a-million emotional, funny, newsworthy poems, speeches, toasts and more – often within 5 business days (RUSH orders and other special orders are accommodated on request).

PoemsToGo’s dedication to providing only original poems, speeches and toasts is born out of Ms. Miller’s own professional background. She used to be a greeting card writer. “I loved it,” she said, “but I never got into that ‘off-the-rack’ mentality. It was my dream to develop a way for providing customers with messages written specifically for them.” Miller’s ingenuity, combined with the Internet, made it all possible, and now PoemsToGo’s new and improved website can be accessed by customers almost anywhere.

Personalization Market Drives Growth for New York Firm

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

What do brides want on their wedding day? Nothing short of perfection. Delivering perfectly personalized wedding favors is a specialty at Favors and Flowers, a New York City-based company that has been providing customized products for corporate events, sweet 16 birthdays, baby showers and bar and bat mitzvahs since 2003.

“There’s a strong trend now toward using names, logos and even photographs to personalize favors,” said Joanne Mann, who founded Favors and Flowers with her husband, Elkin Mann.

To handle their demand for personalized products, Favors and Flowers purchased the Roland VersaStudio BN-20 20-inch desktop inkjet printer/cutter with CMYK plus metallic ink. “The BN-20 fits perfectly with our business,” said Elkin. “It’s extremely easy to use and gives us great results.”

“This is New York – everyone’s in a hurry,” said Elkin. “The BN-20 has print and cut features all in one machine, which speeds up our production and lets us make changes on the fly.” The small footprint of the BN-20 is another advantage for Favors and Flowers.

Favors and Flowers uses its BN-20 to produce customized product labels and decals for garments, banners and floor graphics. “Having the BN-20 has allowed us to broaden our product range,” said Elkin. “It has a lot of functionality for us.”

Customers can order online or come to the store. They can also upload photos to be incorporated into their designs. “The process couldn’t be simpler,” said Elkin.

“In party planning, the big changes season to season are what colors are in fashion,” said Elkin. Favors and Flowers offers its clients a rainbow of color options as well as metallic ink. “The BN-20 colors are right on target. When we need peacock blue, we get peacock blue,” said Elkin.

“The BN-20 makes running our business easier and more efficient,” said Elkin. “It has been a great investment for us.”

Wedding Card Box Business Owner Encourages Women Looking to Launch a Business Now to ‘Jump in, the Water is Fine’

Brighton, MI (PRWEB) July 25, 2012

Kelly Albert is the inventor of The Perfect Card Box®, wedding card boxes used at special occasions such as weddings, graduations, anniversaries, or Bar/Bat-Mitzvah celebrations. Albert is convinced that a down market is the best time to start a business, when there is no place to go but up.

Albert invented, patented and launched a niche product in the wedding market in late 2007 when the economy began to go south. Like many businesses hers began out of need. As a Mother of the Bride in 2007 and again in 2011, she knows that every last detail matters when it comes to weddings. As a budget savvy shopper with 3 daughters, Albert also recognizes that price and practicality often matter more! The Perfect Card Box®; wedding card box was created out of personal need to accomplish both.

At a recent wedding celebration where The Perfect Card Box® was on display, Albert had the opportunity to talk to a table full of women curious about how to invent a product and bring it to market. Since starting her company Albert has been approached by numerous people who have ideas and don’t know next steps to take. Questions range from, “How did you get the nerve to start your own company?”, “How did you get the idea for the product?” “How did you find a supplier?”, “How much did it cost?”, “How did you get your website up and running?” and yes some people even ask “How much money do you make?”

Starting a business can be fun and rewarding. Albert encourages would be business owners to do their homework and find out what competition they have for their product or service. Find out the cost of start up and then take it further to the cost to run the business over time. There are costs you just don’t think of when starting a business. Often asked, “What is the best advice you can give someone considering starting a business?” Albert replies, “Don’t be afraid to launch” If you have done all your research and you are confident you have something unique to offer then “Jump in, the Water is Fine!”

Encouraging others considering a business start up is far and away the best un-expected part of the job, said Albert. She believes the time is now for many entrepreneurs who are currently sitting on the sidelines waiting to launch.
