Next week Thursday is a big night for Hawaii’s public relations industry as the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Hawaii Chapter hosts the 25th Koa Anvil Awards at the Halekulani on July 17. This event has earned the reputation as THE premier communications gala in the Islands celebrating outstanding public relations programs and tactics.
It’s a rare night where PR people will actually be in the spotlight (usually we’re operating behind the scenes) and the McNeil Wilson Communications gang will be out in full force. Our firm has been fortunate over the past few years to win numerous Koa Anvils and Koa Hammers, but most importantly “Best of Show” the past three of the last four years. For those unfamiliar with the event, here’s a couple stories written by Erika Engle of The Honolulu Star-Bulletin from 2006 and 2007.
We’ve got some very strong entries in the competition this year and it will be exciting to see how it all goes down. I look forward to seeing everyone there and if you haven’t reserved your seat, you have until the end of day today to RSVP online. Wish us luck!
