The Luncheon Will Recognize This Year’s Ev Clay/PRSA-Miami Endowment
MIAMI, Florida–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–August 20, 2002–The Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Miami Chapter is to honor WFOR Channel 4’s Lynne Cameron with its sixth Royal Palm Award at its annual scholarship luncheon Friday, Sept. 20, at the Rusty Pelican on Key Biscayne.
Cameron is executive director of “Neighbors 4 Neighbors,” a non-profit organization formed by the local CBS affiliate in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew that creates partnerships and develops resources for the needy in South Florida. Prior to joining “Neighbors 4 Neighbors” in 1993, Cameron worked as an independent consultant in the field of publicity, special events and community relations, with particular emphasis on arts and the environment. In 1987, her work on behalf of Biscayne National Park won the first national Take Pride in America Award for client Herbert W. Hoover.
The luncheon will raise money for the 17-year-old Ev Clay/PRSA Miami Chapter Endowment Fund which offers scholarships to outstanding local students who are studying public relations. This year’s scholarship winners are Erica Cirillo from Miami-Dade Community College, Terrianne Campbell from Florida International University and Julio J. Barroso from University of Miami.
Each year PRSA Miami Chapter honors a member of the community who demonstrates excellence in communications and has made a significant contribution to Miami-Dade County while advancing the values and beliefs held in high regard by PRSA. Past winners include Merrett Stierheim, Ron Levitt, Hank Meyer, Bryan Norcross and Tony Burns.
A reception begins at 11:45 a.m., followed by a luncheon from 12:15-2 p.m. The cost is $40 for PRSA members, $50 for non-members and $25 for students and family members.
