PNC LED Sign – Holmdel, NJ

In 2011 our Treasurer noticed the advertisements on the tollbooths on the Garden State Parkway and had an idea that perhaps we could advertise on these signs. When she called to see if we could advertise our program on these tollbooth signs, it turned out that the Parkway was in the middle of overhauling their tollbooths and they were not scheduling any new advertisements. Our contact then offered to put our message on the PNC Arts Center LED sign. They offered it at no cost to us. Their designers worked with us on our message. The message ran from the week before Thanksgiving until the end of January in 2011. The message has run every year since.

The sign is up again this year. Will you see it?

The PNC Bank Arts Center is a modern amphitheater located in Holmdel Township, New Jersey, USA. About 17,500 people can occupy the amphitheater; there are 7,000 seats and the grass area can hold about 10,500 people. Our message is broadcast in rotation with other messages on 2 signs, one on the Northbound side and the Southbound side of the highway.
