Today’s current climate has affected all of our clients differently, but Noisy Trumpet has remained a constant resource for any support or service they may need. As a result of precautions set forth by the impact of COVID-19, the Noisy Trumpet team is currently working remotely and is well equipped with the necessary tools and resources to make the transition as seamless as possible.
The agency remains open, fully operational, and present for new and existing clients. In order to keep consistent communication and team morale at the forefront, our team is participating in weekly video conferencing calls that help provide a sense of connectivity from remote locations. In addition, we are staying abreast of the latest industry trends by participating in webinars, reading trade publications, and sharing useful resources with one another. We are using this time to re-examine our current marketing assets and collateral while honing our skills to better serve our clients’ needs.
Ultimately, we’ve pivoted several of our public relations and digital initiatives, tailoring our efforts to best serve our clients in whatever capacity that may be. Here are some of the ways Noisy Trumpet is continuing to deliver exceptional services with measurable results:
Olympia Hills Golf & Event Center
Located just outside of San Antonio, Texas, Olympia Hills is recognized as one of the best golf and event venues in the area. Initially, Noisy Trumpet was tasked with a public relations push focused around the venue’s golf operations. As a result of COVID-19, the course was shut down indefinitely, and we quickly shifted our focus to capitalize on areas of the venue that were still operational, namely their dining offerings. Olympia Hills is providing Family Meals To-Go to better serve their community through carryout dining options and free delivery service to senior citizens. Noisy Trumpet is supporting these initiatives through social media promotion and traditional media outreach while identifying curbside and to-go forums to highlight Olympia Hills’ new services. The venue has also partnered with the “Pharm 2 Table” fundraiser, an initiative started by a friend of Olympia Hills, Jeff Harrison. The initiative is raising funds to supply family-style meals to first responders free of charge to thank them for their service.

San Antonio Sports
San Antonio Sports is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the community through the power of sport. San Antonio Sports’ “Hall of Fame Tribute,” the organization’s largest annual fundraiser, set for March 28 was canceled and postponed to February 2021. The event attracts over 1,000 attendees and secures more than $400,000 worth of auction items. With our help, San Antonio Sports successfully transitioned to an online mega auction with hundreds of items to bid on including sports collectibles, gift cards, travel packages, and more. In addition, Noisy Trumpet is supporting San Antonio Sports’ i play! afterschool program, which ignites a love of sport in 3rd through 5th graders, while teaching them life lessons about active living, good nutrition, and strong personal character. The program currently serves 1,450 children in 58 elementary schools in San Antonio. Although the program is at a halt, San Antonio Sports is continuing to provide sports and fitness opportunities for children by sharing resources for them to stay active and healthy at home. To support this mission, Noisy Trumpet developed a special “Stay Active, Stay Healthy” coloring sheet and infographic to help keep kids moving during quarantine, and has connected with local media outlets to share this initiative. On social media, we’re asking influencers to post a video of them exercising or re-post the infographic with the hashtag #iStayActive.

SA YES is a nonprofit organization with a simple purpose: to provide free school supplies to Title 1 elementary students that need assistance. During this unprecedented time, SA YES is continuing to work diligently on securing resources and supplies for students. Unfortunately, their two largest annual events, the Taste of Education Dinner and Golf Classic Tournament have been canceled, which represents over 51 percent? of their budget. SA YES has shifted their focus to the immediate needs of the audience they proudly serve, the children. Our team is supporting SA YES by helping them compile a list of at-home resources for parents and children to help sustain education during this time. We have also developed the following interactive challenges to keep students active while maintaining social distancing:
Sidewalk Chalk Challenge
- Kids are encouraged to go outside and draw or write words of encouragement on the sidewalk with chalk.
- With parental permission, post photos of the artwork on Twitter @SAYES_ORG or Facebook @SAYESORG using the #sidewalkchalkchallenge
Kids Coloring Challenge
- Kids are encouraged to draw their favorite subject in school, sport, favorite book character, or a picture of you and your best friend.
- With parental permission, post photos of the artwork on Twitter @SAYES_ORG or Facebook @SAYESORG using the #SAYESColoringChallenge.
