The most prestigious award of the FPRA annual competition, the 2014 “Grand All Image Award” for Public Relations Campaigns, was presented to CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing, along with an Image Award and Judge’s Award for the firm’s promotion of the Quality Life Center Fundraiser: Changing Lives, Transforming Communities event. Public relations and social media efforts continued beyond the event to tell the story surrounding the crisis of the centers’ struggle to keep its doors open. With the $100,000.00 contribution from Magic Johnson himself and those in the community the event raised over $350,000.00.
An Award of Distinction was received for the Lee County Bar Association’s monthly magazine, Res Gestae, which the CONRIC team publishes in-house. Res Gestae has improved the overall image of the Lee County Bar Association and has strived to set it apart from similar associations while continuing to elevate its prestige among members and the community.
Two awards were presented, an Award of Distinction and an Image Award, for the Pace Center for Girls Lee County, Love that Dress! 5 campaign for not only creating awareness for its fifth anniversary, but for the events leading up to it. Along with an incredible committee and support from the community, a strong public relations strategy was one of the key components to the record breaking fundraising efforts and overall attendance. CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing is looking forward to working on the committee and campaign for Love That Dress! 6.
Ramos-Williams says, “We are so honored to have been presented with not one, but six awards in our first year of competition. CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing is pleased that our clients were able to share these awards and recognition with our team the night of the event. She adds, “Our greatest award, however, is the success that our public relations campaigns have brought to our clients – Quality Life Center can keep their doors open, and the Pace LTD! 5 campaign broke the previous year’s fundraising record.“
