Well, to show you that you are always working even back in 2001 when there were iPhones or social media and Dave had no gray hair.   Somehow Siegfried never ages.

On this day, my colleague Lindsay Fredricks and I pitched media to come to the Lied Animal Shelter to see/watch Siegfried & Roy adopt a dog.  This was shortly after the magical duo signed a liftetime contract at The Mirage.    In 2005, John Katsilometes introduced his new column in the Las Vegas Sun and how he was pitched by a publicist (aka ME!) at the LVAC about attending this event. (Link to column: http://lasvegassun.com/news/2005/oct/02/columnist-john-katsilometes-this-wag-isnt-above-do/).  He attended the event and wrote an article…#SCORE!   He also remembered my persistence and four years later shared my pitch to him on the StairMaster that night at the gym in his new column, Fabulous Las Vegas.  I was 32 and hungry….today I am 46 and still hungry and love what I do!   (I also was completely smitten by Siegfried….I think that is why Dave is laughing because I was probably blushing!)

So really you can pitch media anywhere, anytime….Happy #ThrowBackThursday!  #LongLiveRapunzel #SiegfriedAndRoy #KDC #PR
