Kickstarter Campaign for Sonoma-USA

Sonoma-USA 2


Sonoma-USA has a Kickstarter campaign running and are asking for a pledge of $30,000.

Go check out their page and watch their video showing their wonderful products.

The products are extremely sturdy and durable with a “feel good” aspect since you would be helping the environment and local charities as well.

Marketing Your Strengths



By Tom Jackson

The first rule of marketing is to use absolutely everything you have. Too many people approach marketing as a one-size-fits-all campaign, run year-round, year-in, year-out. This is a great way to get ignored….Sharing your unique story across all marketing channels will expand your brand’s appeal. A personalized experience will always be remembered and shared. Capitalizing on every season with events and promotions will keep you in consumers’ thoughts. Play off your strengths and show them off to your customers. Read Entire Article Here

It was one of the first California Certified Organic Farms in 1989 and continued to become pioneers in organic and sustainable grape growing. Under the Umbrella of Fetzer, one of the biggest advocates for sustainable and organic farming practices in the wine industry, Bonterra has reached enormous heights and popularity throughout the world. Bonterra can be seen on our Rohnert Park digital billboard off Hwy 101 and our static billboard in Windsor off Hwy 101 with their wine bottle and their favorite phrase “Organically Farmed” on display. Fetzer Vineyards wanted to target travelers driving towards Alexander Valley, Mendocino, and other Northern Ca areas to become aware of their Bonterra brand. With the help of Veale Outdoor Advertising Bonterra will reach 1.6 million drivers per month advertising on our digital and static billboards.

About St. Jude’s


St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN was founded in 1962 by entertainer Danny Thomas for the purpose of treating and finding cures for children’s cancer.  When St. Jude opened its doors, childhood cancer was a virtual death sentence.  Only 20 percent of children survived, and only 4 percent of children diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer, won their fight.  The research and treatment developed by St. Jude have helped push today’s overall survival rate for childhood cancers to 80 per cent, and the survival rate for ALL is now 94 percent.


Country Cares for St. Jude kids is one of the most successful radio fundraising events in America.  Since the program began in 1989, nearly 200 radio stations across the country have participated and raised $550 million in pledges for the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
