(PRESS RELEASE EXAMPLES: SEE ALSO LINKS BELOW WITHIN PARAGRAPHS)     (PRESS KIT EXAMPLE)

You have a great idea and plan to hold your event in a few months. You've reserved the church space (with the church office), know how to open/close the building, clean up, and have all the logistics in order.   How is best to let people know about your event, and what are the resources available for advertising it?
