  • Sarasota-Bradenton, FL (1888PressRelease) August 20, 2016 - In Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida, students who're fascinated by Pokemon Go will be offered something that is, perhaps, a more thrilling pursuit when launches its Pirate's Treasure Hunt in late August. It's a 12-month educational journey in the form of an exciting quest for the treasure of a legendary pirate, once marooned in the area. The unique scavenger hunt provides middle school students with real clues that, with some detective work and a close examination of their own local history, can lead to hundreds of dollars in gifts and prizes.

    It all begins this month with the thunderous, heavily accented voice of a pirate, uttering the first verses of a twelve - part poem, sprinkled with clues that will lead to the hidden treasure. It's only the first of many riddles to be found at Others can be discovered while viewing the upcoming documentary series, Sarasota Showcased. It's a web show that also premiers this month and covers the history of major figures from the Sarasota/Bradenton area.

    These are the first of several entertaining new programs which are being created by RisingStar31 Productions to support inspirational films and educational programs for youth. Pamela Sherrod, the producer, believes that the Pirate's Treasure Hunt is a wonderful way to "make learning a fun and exciting adventure." It's a popular program she introduced to a local charter school during the same year that she partnered with Mrs. Sammy Davis Jr. to produce musical films and educational programs for children. They were on a mission to fulfill a request made by the late Rat Pack star, Sammy Davis Jr., who'd always regretted have sacrificed his education to start performing as a child.

    "It's also a great way to support and promote our local businesses," Pamela adds. In addition to these projects, they're producing web shows about Florida celebrities and local stars, food and restaurant reviews, the work of local artists and a special program about the real estate market.

    Pamela emphasizes that was created to, not only host entertaining shows, but provide a dynamic way to promote the services of local businesses, especially those that support the Pirate's Treasure Hunt and other educational programs.

    One of the benefits of sponsorship is to have a professional commercial produced for them and featured on the new web shows. Sponsors will also be honored during the celebration for the Pirate's Treasure Hunt winners and will be prominently showcased on the 'sister site,', a valuable city guide to local businesses.

    "It's great for everyone," says Pamela. "Because, as a community, we can make a powerful impact on children's lives by bringing history and literature to life. And at the same time, it promises to be a lot of fun!"
