We’re officially marking the 25th anniversary of our chapter’s Edward L. Bernays Mark of Excellence Awards Program this year!

As a chapter we’ve acknowledged many accomplishments of our members and member organizations over the past 25 years. Together, as a chapter, we’ve blossomed. The 2017 Bernays Awards Bloom Where You Are Planted theme recognizes our collective accomplishments as a chapter here in the San Diego and Imperial Counties region.

We hope you’ll join our 25th anniversary celebration this at The Dana on Mission Bay on Thursday, Oct. 12, from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

Attendees will sip cocktails at the waterfront resort enveloped by lush tropical landscaping and blooms, and have the opportunity to bid on a variety of silent auction items. Then, head inside for a three-course meal and the awards ceremony announcing this year’s Silver, Bronze and Special Awards winners. Tickets are available for individual purchase or tables of 10 seats. Elevated table sponsorships are also available that include 10 seats and special recognition and perks!
