Bethany Methodist Communities is a non profit organization in Chicago that provides independent/assisted living through four communities, comprehensive healthcare services through Methodist Hospital of Chicago, and licensed homecare services.
This marks the third year we’ve worked with Bethany Methodist Communities on their Good Samaritan Fundraiser. The purpose of the fundraising event is to raise funds for healthcare costs that are not otherwise paid for by traditional insurance policies.

Bethany Methodist Communities has an open door policy and takes care of patients, regardless of their financial situation. The organization’s mission and message fit well with our style of emotional, visual storytelling. We worked with their team to create a series of videos, which were shown during their fundraising event at the Holiday Inn Skokie. Delack Media Group also provided AV rental of two large rear screen projectors/screens, complete audio support for the show, technicians, and a live show producer.

The Children’s Service Board is one of the most active and successful philanthropic affiliated organizations of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. They’ve supported the creation a new state-of-the-art hospital and are now engaged in a five year, $3 million commitment to support the hospital’s Division of Pediatric Surgery, which is the largest provider of general pediatric surgery in Chicago.

While planning its fundraising event, they contacted Delack Media Group, asking if we could produce a video that told an emotional, visual story about the hospital and its impact on patients. We came up with the concept of interviewing former patients’ families and combining those soundbites with visuals of them and of the new facility. Paired with musical scores in post production, their personal stories came alive. Eight months later, and many months of planning…we were able to produce a video that tells a story about the organization and its mission. The Children’s Service Board raised over $412,000 for Lurie Children’s Hospital, which was a record-setting year for the organization!

Sue and Wes Dixon Waterfowl Refuge in Hennepin
Chicago-based Non Profit, The Wetlands Initiative, contacted Delack Media Group with a unique challenge. In conjunction with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service & the Lt. Governor of Illinois’ office, they planned to make a very historic announcement about an area of land in Hennepin, IL known as the Sue & Wes Dixon Waterfowl Refuge.

The 2,700 acre area was being designated as a “Ramsar Site”, which is one of only 34 in the U.S. These sites are known internationally as wetlands of international importance under the Ramsar Convention.

In addition to the live announcement at the Hennepin, IL site, a similar announcement was being made at the Dickson Mounds Museum. The plan was to have both sites presenting speakers and simulcasting those speeches via our internet feed. We displayed live video from some of the Dickson Mounds Museum speakers and displayed it on a 60″ LCD screen for those attending the Hennepin, IL event to see.

Part of the challenge with this webcast was the remote nature of the event.

The site had no electrical power (we brought in a generator for power) and it also had very limited cellular coverage. We spent many hours of pre-production on the phone planning for this webcast, calling local cellular providers who serviced the remote area. Several weeks before the actual event, we did a site survey and determined the best wireless cellular provider for the event by testing various services.

After the webcast, we also edited portions of the presentation and delivered video files to the local television news stations for inclusion in their evening newscasts.
