Propel Marketing was honored to co-sponsor the May 29th Boston PRoud event, right here in the great city we call home.
Boston PRoud brought together dozens of PR and Advertising agencies from around the city to raise money and support the victims of the April 14th Boston Marathon bombing.
Over 800 PR professionals from the Greater Boston area came out to show their local pride at Lir, Back Bay Social Club, and Dillons. The event was sold out three times! The evening brought out the best of our often-competitive community.
100% of donations were put towards One Fund Boston, raising an incredible total of $65,000, according to Ken Peter, one of the event’s organizers! The One Fund was established the day after the bombings by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to raise funds for families affected by the tragedy.
Here’s part of our own Propel family, enjoying the evening and standing Boston PRoud:
Thanks to all our fellow co-sponsors for helping support our beloved Boston and One Fund!
