What a Summer!

As we look forward to what the last quarter of the year has to offer, we can’t help but look back on all the Focuscom fun that we had this summer.

Asian Business Association Taste of Asia

On May 23rd, the Asian Business Association held their first inaugural Taste of Asia event to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage month. The event was a hit as over 20 restaurants, breweries, and distilleries presented their Asian inspired cuisine to compete to be the ABA’s Best Restaurant of 2017!

Chula Vista Police Foundation Evening with Heroes

On June 7th we had the honor of attending the Evening with Heroes, which benefitted the Chula Vista Police Foundation. Our very own president, Dan Hom, is on the Board of Directors as the Chairman Emeritus for the Chula Vista Police Foundation. The cocktail reception & luau dinner took place at the Easton Archery Center at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center. The event was a tremendous success as the foundation raised over $200,000, which will go towards their community programs.

PRSA New Pros Social

Our past and present interns attended the PRSA San Diego New Pros social event. Olivia, our account executive, is the events co-chair for the San Diego New Pros and helped plan this great evening at Saint Archer Brewery.

15th Annual Beer and Sake Festival

The Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana held their 15th annual Beer and Sake Festival at Harrah’s resort on June 16th. Focuscom was an event sponsor and had a wonderful time with with our team, family and friends. Funner, California definitely lived up to its name that night!

PRSA New Pros 10 News Tour

Olivia, Tanita, and Andie got to take a behind the scenes tour of ABC 10news with the PRSA San Diego New Pros in June!  They got to learn about how a local newsroom runs and even meet one of the anchors, Kimberly Hunt.

PRSA Summer Social

San Diego’s PRSA chapter held their Summer Social by the Sea at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps in July. It was the perfect setting for networking with our fellow PR pros.  Focuscom was happy to be the wine sponsor for this event.

Comic Con

One of the biggest perks of having an office in Downtown is being right up the street from the Convention Center’s biggest event of the summer!  We got to take a field trip down to the off-site attractions during Comic Con.

Lunches at Duchateau

Our team had the pleasure of dining at DuChateau not once, but twice this summer! DuChateau specializes in luxury architectural finishes and flooring. Although they’ve been around since 2007, their new space is the perfect event venue. Chef Michael put together such an amazing four course meal during our first visit that we had to come back for another event.

Lisa’s Birthday Party

To celebrate the birthday of our amazing controller and president’s wife, Lisa, we had the opportunity to cruise the bay on a yacht!  The night was filled with fun, food, and great views of the Downtown skyline.  Thanks again to Sunset Rendezvous for the great night!

PRSA New Pros Media Panel

Our awesome account executive, Olivia, organized a great PRSA New Pros event on August 29 at WeWork Downtown.  We had the opportunity to listen to a panel of reporters teach us about the Do’s and Don’ts of pitching. We can’t thank our panelists enough for giving us their tips that will guide how we work with the media! Thank you to PR Photo Group for the images.

With all the fun we had this summer, we can’t help but look forward to what’s to come!  Here are some of the events coming up:
