NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) -  Today marks the inaugural Red Nose Day in the United States and Hayes Martin Associates, Inc. (HMA), a leading marketing, advertising and public relations firm in Newport Beach, is excited to announce its support of this important charitable event.
