Famous Actor Couple Join the Fight Against Progeria
The recognizable voices of Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen are featured in a public service campaign launched this summer by PRF. Proud supporters since 2003, the couple lend their time and talent to help.
November 2006: PRF gets Ad Council endorsement, PSA airing in Times Square
What a thrill to have The Progeria Research Foundation’s Public Service Announcement (PSA) air on the Astrovision in New York City’s Times Square twice an hour, every hour during the month of November! And the timing is terrific, too, as Times Square attracts huge holiday shopping crowds in November.
And the awareness of PRF’s work continues to grow with the PSA’s backing by the Ad Council, a highly respected organization whose endorsement is considered the “seal of approval” for PSA campaigns. This is another fantastic opportunity for increased exposure for PRF, which will be featured in the Ad Council’s November/December PSA Bulletin, distributed to PSA directors at 18,000 media outlets nationwide.
Many thanks to Spectrum Science Communications for their continuing, successful efforts to raise awareness of Progeria and the important work of The Progeria Research Foundation.
