  • Charleston-North Charleston, SC (1888PressRelease) November 02, 2010 - Pam Hartley, Founder of Momentum Marketing, announced today that Charleston Mayor, Joseph P. Riley, Jr., took part in a Lowcountry Local First (LLF) PSA that Hartley's company shot on Monday, November 1, 2010. The PSA will promote Buy Local Month, November 15-December 15, which encourages buying local through various events and promotions. The Buy Local Card will also be introduced in the television spot. The card provides incentives to buying from locally owned businesses in Charleston.

    Hartley said, "Momentum is a local business and we know how important it is to get the support of Charleston locals, so this project has been near and dear to us. We think that Buy Local Month and the Buy Local Card are both great ways to get the community to support local businesses and this television PSA will only promote them on a higher level. LLF is a great organization and we've had a blast working with them and promoting their various initiatives."

    Lowcountry Local First, headquartered in North Charleston, SC, is the 44th member organization in a national network of non-profits dedicated to strengthening their local economies, called the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies. LLF is committed to uniting local businesses with the mission to promote and preserve the Lowcountry economy through the promotion of local goods and services. LLF also manages the program, "Farm Fresh Food," a sustainable agriculture initiative that focuses on strengthening local farms and producers by creating partnerships with local restaurants, institutions, the community and training a new generation of food system leaders.
