Next Meeting: Tuesday, November 27, 2018 Topic: “How the ECPRO Foundation supports education and advancement in public relations and related fields”

The Emerald Coast Public Relations Organization (ECPRO) invites you to give back in November. This month’s meeting falls on #Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27, kicking off the holiday giving season.

 

Joe Purka, chair of the Emerald Coast Public Relations (ECPR) Foundation, will discuss how the Foundation supports education and advancement in public relations and related fields. ECPRO has helped fund scholarships for area students for the past 26 years.

 

Fundraising is necessary each year to provide future scholarships. As an incentive, Sherry Harlow, APR, has pledged $100 to provide a free membership for 2019 for one member. The winning member’s name will be drawn from those members or guests who donate $25 or more to the ECPR Foundation, starting at November’s luncheon and continuing through the ECPRO Holiday Social, which is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 11, at The Gulf on Okaloosa Island.

 

Join ECPRO at Chapala’s Mexican Restaurant, 67 Eglin Pkwy. NE, Fort Walton Beach, 32548, from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Nov. 27 to network, make new friends and participate in #Giving Tuesday. Lunch is $15 for members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students. If you do not want to eat but want to hear the program, the cost is $10. Guests are always welcome and should bring business cards for networking. Don’t forget door prizes and a few extra dollars for business announcements.
