On Thursday, August 23, the best and brightest in the local public relations community will gather at the 2012 Copper Anvil Awards, celebrating “Ideas Come to Light.”

Tickets are on sale now – come join us by clicking here!

The event has the honor of being held at the newly opened Hotel Palomar in downtown Phoenix, making it one of the first – but certainly not the last – signature events choosing the sassy, classy venue.

And, with a décor partner as creative at Kool Party Rentals coupled with an emcee who lights up any room in the fiery Johna Burke, the event will literally come to light before everyone’s eyes.

While celebrating the most innovative, impactful and imaginative public relations campaigns and tactics from the past year, however, guests will also be given the chance to lend a hand in securing the success of future public relations practitioners via the PRSA Copper Anvil Scholarship Raffle and Auction. Every penny raised from the raffle and auction will be donated directly to our scholarship fund! In fact, funds from our 2011 event will be handed out during our 2012 awards program to our current scholarship winner, based on this criteria and application process.

Raffle tickets will be sold as follows:

  • 1 for $5
  • 3 for $10
  • 10 for $20

In an effort to tease (and help open) everyone’s wallets for a good cause, here’s a little teaser on all of the 2012 Copper Anvil raffle and auction packages available. Oh, and if this inspires you, feel free to contact me to add a package or item to the raffle. I will take any great donations through August 22nd.
