GOSHEN, N.Y. (April 8, 2021) – Focus Media, a strategic full-service public relations agency based in New York’s Hudson Valley, has been chosen as the public relations agency of record by the Bonura Hospitality Group. Focus Media will partner with the well-known Bonura family, which has been leaders in the Hudson Valley’s catering, restaurant and hospitality sector since the early 1980s.
Bonura Hospitality Group’s premier venues include The Grandview, Shadows on The Hudson and The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, West Hills Country Club in Middletown, Blu Pointe restaurant and an adjacent new outdoor venue on the Newburgh waterfront. They offer exceptional settings for all types of events, from weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs to banquets, parties, meetings and conferences. Each location features meticulously manicured landscaping, indoor and outdoor settings for ceremonies and receptions, extraordinary food, unrivaled service and attractive packages to fit every budget.
In addition, Bonura Hospitality Group has expanded into single- and multi-family residential hospitality. It operates Water Club Luxury Living, high-end apartments steps away from the Poughkeepsie waterfront, and recently announced a $40 million investment at West Hills Country Club in Middletown. That project includes the addition of 158 multifamily market-rate apartments on its golf course. These efforts are additional examples of how the Bonura Hospitality Group has fostered job creation and investment in the Hudson Valley and cultivated and maintained community relationships.
“The Bonura family, through its vision, venues, community contributions and philanthropy, has been an integral contributor to quality of life in Dutchess and Orange counties,” Focus Media President and CEO Josh Sommers said. “We look forward to forging ahead in a partnership that will fuel additional success and benefit the communities the Bonura Hospitality Group serves.”
Bonura Hospitality Group Principal Joseph Bonura Jr. said, “Focus Media’s team provides advanced public-relations strategies, as well as deep institutional knowledge of the region. We look forward to the company’s expertise as we seek to build more market share, grow revenue and continue to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s great to partner with an agency with this refined experience and reputation right in our community.”
