July 9, 2012 - PRLog -- “One of the most pressing challenges facing not for profit organizations in South Florida is obtaining news coverage for their special events. With editorial space at a premium, and soft news coverage dwindling, charities are finding it ever more difficult to share their success stories with the public,” claims Jack Namer, founder of 3F Television and Eye on South Florida.

Namer is a successful entrepreneur with over 20 years experience building, developing and managing innovative telecommunications and Internet technology companies. His newest venture was created to help charities raise money using the latest broadcasting technology available.

Founded in 2011, Eye on South Florida is an innovative news network dedicated to providing an outlet to non-profit organizations with live, real time broadcasting from their fundraising event. Namer provides the on air service, pro bono.

When a group of Special Olympics athletes visited a dress rehearsal of Cirque Dreams Pop Goes the Rock at Hard Rock Live, Eye on South Florida captured the joy and excitement of the once in a lifetime experience. When 211-Broward honored eight outstanding individuals and non-profits, Eye on South Florida was there to make sure that everyone received the recognition they deserved.

The impact of Eye on South Florida coverage is multi- faceted. Once confirmed, a crew attends the event and it can be viewed, in real time by the public, on select cable and TV channels as well as on the internet. Live interviews are conducted with event organizers, board members, honorees and VIP guests.

To date, the Eye on South Florida news team has been present at dozens of notable events including Broward Navy Days, Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2012 presented by Big Brothers Big Sisters, Riverwalk Trust’s 3rd Annual Burger Battle, The 2nd Annual BSO Public Safety Expo and Delish 2012 presented by the Wasie Foundation.

Utilizing the power of social media, Eye on South Florida is able to inform the charity’s donors, constituents, supporters and followers to tune in or log on to watch as the special event unfolds. Reminders and updates can, also, be sent with text messages to millions of people, generated by Eye on South Florida.

After the event, Eye on South Florida goes back to their production studio and edits a full length, quality news package that is featured and later archived on their website.

“Competition for donations is fierce and charities need publicity to help raise the funds that are vital to their programs,” said Namer. “Now they have the opportunity to show showcase who they are and what they do,” he added.

Since its inception, the not for profit community has wholeheartedly embraced Eye on South Florida. “The feedback I am receiving has been overwhelmingly positive,” Namer said.

“What Eye on South Florida is offering the non-profit community is an invaluable tool and asset. They truly understand the meaning of giving back to our community,” said Jen Klaassens, Vice President of Programs, The Wasie Foundation.

According to Namer, South Florida is the first of just many markets that will have this live streaming technology. He vows to produce and promote news and entertainment that helps create “a new generation of leaders and not breeders of negative lifestyles.”

By keeping an EYE ON South Florida first, which is his home, he plans to set the stage for the world to see the difference.
