We're excited to share some recent accolades Cone and our clients have received:
- The American Heart Association's Start! America event received top honors in the Event PR Category at the PR News Nonprofit PR Awards, which recognize the best of the best in nonprofit communications. It is an exciting honor to be recognized for the Start! initiative's innovative efforts to raise awareness and inspire action around the importance of physical activity for Americans.
Start! America was lauded for its integrated approach, as the event appealed to both business- and consumer-oriented press through celebrity and CEO engagement, its design that enabled sponsors to activate and promote their participation, and its ability to engage busy professionals through a variety of fun activities in the hub of New York City's financial center.
- PNC Financial Services Group was honored as one of the "10 Best Corporate Citizens" in the financial industry by Corporate Responsibility Officer (CRO) Magazine. CRO Magazine is the publication for the CRO Organization, made up of individuals at publicly traded companies who manage compliance, legal, ethics, human resources and investor relations functions.
PNC was recognized for its commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen through initiatives like PNC Grow Up Great, the 10-year, $100 million investment in preparing children for school and life.
