From corporate roots in sales and business development, grew a successful daily blog and a powerful brand, Pamela’s Punch. And grow it has. In one year from September to September, Pamela has grown her faithful audience by 87%.


Pamela Sorensen adapted her keen business acumen and flair for promoting corporate responsibility into a dream job. You may be surprised to know this socially active and responsible young philanthropist was not always a PR goddess.


In fact, her successful formula for sharing what’s hot and helpful grew out of necessity. With one half of her days spent pushing information out about the upcoming events for committees, boards, and projects she was actively involved in and the other half spent recounting how they went, Pamela needed a vehicle for communication and fast. 


What could easily have become more of a chore than a hobby grew into a successful blog with a private marketing and consulting business.


While Pamela is not originally from the DC area, she has made it her home since 1990. Her first formal career and philanthropic experience put her in the mix of the over 8,000 charities that naturally partner socially and professionally. Her experience helps other young professionals easily find opportunities to get involved or at least turn out to support their peers who are making their marks on foundations, boards, and host committees.


As is the case with most blogs, her posts are quick and informative like a road map but with flashy photos and no tricky folding, leaving in depth and editorial work to sources like the Washington Post and next generation electronic media like Local Waiting like a quick, morning caffeine jolt in your inbox, Pamela’s Punch hits readers early most days with a few juicy details.


You may ask what is Pamela Sorensen really excited about upcoming on the social and philanthropic scene? The only Academy sanctioned Oscar event in the DC area, of course. This black tie event at the Hard Rock will benefit the Red Cross. Look for more details right here on Local and on Pamela’s Punch about the only red carpet walk in town.


Susanne Seidman shares Pamela’s Sorensen’s passion for spreading the scoop about social and philanthropic opportunities around town and admires her stamina.
