New York (September 14, 2011) – Cone’s Jiffy Lube International account team is pleased to announce its Maintenance Partners for Life (MPFL) campaign is being inducted into the PR News Platinum PR Awards Hall of Fame at the Platinum PR Awards Luncheon, in addition to being up for 2010 campaign of the year in the Community Relations category.
