Matt Barnes and Snoop Dogg’s Celebrity Flag Football Game!

The First Annual Celebrity Flag Football Game this past Sunday was a huge success for all who attended but more importantly for Athletes vs. Cancer and The Snoop Youth Football League!  

The bleachers at Palisades Charter High School were full of fans as their favorite singers, actors, NFL and NBA stars prepped for the big UCLA vs.USC game.  The live twitter draft took place the night before the game with Snoop and Matt battling back and forth for the best players.

The VIP section of the field was full of S.W.A.G. thanks to our sponsors: BeTini, One Vodka, Core Power, Hansen’s Lemonade, Quest Nutrition, Art San Sports Massage, Red Bull Adidas, RMM, and Body Armor. 

It was a close game but two late touchdowns from Metta World Peace and an interception for Nick Young gave Team Snoop/USC the 63-56 victory.

After the great Mayweather fight in Las Vegas, client Bikini Brigade LA headed back home. The ladies worked the fight as ring girls, modeled and promoted products at the Supercross finals, and got to attend hot new club Hakkasan where Calvin Harris and Tiesto performed. They even ran in to Neil Patrick Harris!

At the supercross finals, client Jeremy McGrath was able to reveal the winner of his $20,000 scholarship. It was Alex Northcutt, who will use the money to further his education and pursue his dreams of working within the motorcycle/ motocross industry. Congrats, Alex!

The LAPR social media and events team treated themselves to a night out to celebrate the anniversary of the London Hotel in WeHo. It was a great event with some old friends and some new opportunities.

Lynch Archer then celebrated Mother’s Day! A great reminder to thank all our clients, clients’ wives, and our own moms for always being there for support.

LAPR was delighted to be invited back to ESPN’s Sports Nation with client Matt Barnes. He was even in-studio for their surprise Taco Tuesday skit, where Matt got to chow down on a taco during the commercial break.

Though Matt suffered a great loss already in this playoff season, he was able to make an impressive 30 points in his last game. He has spent the last few weeks opening up to the media about his future as an NBA player and the future of the LA Clippers team. He will be a free agent this summer, but has made it known that he and his family love LA. Being a UCLA grad, Barnes has strong roots in the area. For a taste of his media talks, check out one interview with ESPN here: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=9275303

CEO Cheryl was in NYC for the TV upfronts. She and the LAPR team will attend several meetings with potential clients along with helming some network duties.

The WME Tennis Classic is finally just around the corner! The annual event lets us catch up with old friends from the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Center. LAPR loves to do charitable events with them, as theirs is a great cause that helps children with cancer. The tennis classic will feature many celebrities who will come out for a day of doubles tennis in the sun.

Other than TV pitching in NYC and Hollywood events in LA, the team has their sights set on plenty more to keep them busy in the next few weeks including Cannes Film Festival, Billboard Music Awards, ESPYs, the Fast and the Furious premiere, The Hangover premiere, and much more!

Please come back soon for more updates!

Matt Barnes Media Round-Up

It’s been a whirlwind for Los Angeles-based Lynch Archer PR Entertainment these past two weeks with getting in coverage for Los Angeles Clipper Matt Barnes while he finally had a few days off!  From being on the road to playoffs quickly approaching, we had a small window of opportunity to get Matt on-air talking about the amazing Clippers season as well as his foundation Athletes vs Cancer (www.athletesversuscancer.org) and his youth EA Basketball Camp coming up in the summer!

The madness began with Matt’s first interview with Extra at The Grove.  Matt was really great with all his fans, stopping to take pictures and sign autographs with kids and adults alike.

The show went great!  Maria interviewed both Matt and Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Clippers about the big game Sunday (which the Clips wound up winning, woo!) and Matt got in some air time for his foundation Athletes vs Cancer as well.

The two also had a little shoot-out, whoever could make the most baskets into the arcade basketball hoops in 30 seconds won, and they pulled two fans in with them.

Here’s the clip of the two on the show in case you missed it!

The next day Matt had to wake up bright early to phone into KROQ’s morning show with Kevin & Bean on Friday!  While it was really early (7:35am), Matt did excellent and cracked some jokes with the shows host and producer who were Lakers and Clippers fans and joked about Matt throwing the game last Sunday and what it means to be a Clipper now.

You can download the podcast here from April 5th: http://kroq.cbslocal.com/kevin-bean-podcasts-april-2013/

Afterwards Matt had the whole day off Saturday after practicing for the big game Sunday against the Lakers!  He spent it with his wife Gloria Govan, and twin sons Isaiah and Carter.

And of course after a lovely day off Saturday, Matt rested up for the big game versus the Lakers on Sunday!  It was an exciting and great game, but the chemistry of the Clippers ultimately beat the Lakers, officially make the Los Angeles Clippers Pacific Division champs for the first time in franchise history! We are so proud of Matt being on a team making history.

And the work wasn’t over for Matt!  Monday we were back on our crazy press schedule with taping Hallmarks Home & Family with both Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan.  The two showed up to the set on the Universal lot looking fabulous and did a great job getting into Matt’s foundation, Athletes vs Cancer.  They really dove into how his mother’s death and Gloria’s parents being cancer survivors motivated them to start the foundation and zoned in on a side of Matt many of us haven’t seen.

Home & Family also surprised Matt and Gloria with an opportunity.  They gave Matt 5 chances to make the ball from half court and if he made it, they would donate $1,000 to Athletes vs Cancer! And he made it! So sweet of them and a great surprise for Matt!

If you don’t have the Hallmark channel, you can watch Matt’s segment here:

After we wrapped Home & Family in Universal, it was off to West LA to have Matt Barnes on Studio 11 LA on Fox! Laura Diaz was excited to have him on the show right off of his amazing game Sunday.  They talked about the Clippers great win over the Lakers, what it means to be a Pacific Division champ, and looking ahead to playoffs!

And if you think we were done, we weren’t.

Matt had a FULL day of media and press yesterday as well!

Matt headed straight from practice to his home where Gloria Govan, his kids, and E! News were waiting to interview Matt & Gloria and get footage of them at home with their kids.

After a long shooting day, everyone rested up a bit before one last final check mark on our media schedule, the 42 premiere at TCL Chinese Theater!

Matt and Gloria dressed in their best blues of course and headed out to catch 42, the Jackie Robinson story.

The 42 premiere was a star studded event, and even our photo of Big Sean and Naya Rivera went viral as it was the first the two were seen holding hands in public, making them an official couple!  Twitter and Tumblr picked up on the photo like wildfire and we couldn’t keep up with everyone using it!

Lynch Archer PR Recap: Matt Barnes’ Birthday Party Friday in Los Angeles

This past Friday was Lynch Archer PR’s favorite NBA superstar’s birthday, Los Angeles Clipper Matt Barnes.

It was held at Couture Los Angeles located in Hollywood, CA and featured a ton of special guests.

Matt rolled in deep with the beautiful Gloria Govan and fellow Clippers Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Chris Paul, and Caron Butler.  Nick Swardson and Rick Thorne also stopped by the party to hangout and grab some drinks with us.

The party was on point at all times, complete with sexy go-go dancers:

Bottles after bottles:

Bringing it all out!

And of course Clipper themed cupcakes were a must!

Awesome Clippers/Basketball themed cupcakes for Matt’s birthday!

After hanging with friends and a little bit of chaos with everyone trying to take pictures with him, Matt Barnes stepped up to the mic to thank everyone for coming out to celebrate this birthday with him!  It was crazy packed and everyone was here to celebrate with him, so it was awesome he took the time out of his celebration to do that.
