When we learned a young couple planned to become engaged after a skydive at our client, Skydive Suffolk, we jumped into action.
What a perfect opportunity for media coverage, we thought.
Beth Sholom Village is rooted in tradition.
Along the nursing home’s walls are large-scale black and white photographs honoring treasured past residents. Each day staff and visitors make their way past these smiling faces to assisted living, rehab or maybe the wellness center.

Senior, Ocean Lakes High School
With summer coming to an end, it’s time to wrap up the internship I was fortunate to land through Virginia Beach City Public Schools.
My time with Rubin Communications Group has been filled with memorable experiences and opportunities.

Give Local 757, an annual event coordinated by the three major community foundations in the region (Peninsula, Southeast and Hampton Roads) reach out to Joel Rubin. Not knowing exactly what he was getting into, he agreed to help with PR on a pro-bono basis, in exchange for our logo being placed on all promotion. (more…)
We only “pitch” what we consider viable stories to the news media and never complain if we fail to achieve “hits.”
But in late April, we were on a roll, thanks to our clients and a host of reporters and editors who agreed that our advisories warranted coverage. And in some cases, the placements were beyond our wildest imaginations. (more…)
