NEW YORK: Miramax president Harvey Weinstein, VH1 president John Sykes and Wenner Media chairman Jan Wenner tapped New York-based entertainment PR firm PMK to publicize the celebrity-filled bash they threw last week to honor Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore (and raise a few million dollars for the Democratic National Committee).

PMK partner Leslie Dart said that last Thursday night's event at Radio City Music Hall presented a unique challenge for the agency, which had to liaise with the Secret Service. Kimberlin Love, Deputy Press Secretary for the DNC, called PMK the obvious choice for the account because '(they) have a lot of experience working with entertainment reporters.'

PMK has enjoyed longtime relationships with the event's media-mogul producers.

The agency regularly handles PR for Miramax's film releases.
